I've been fighting congestion since day one of this pregnancy. I just bought my Neti pot yesterday and have used it about three times. It hasn't cleared me up yet, but I think that has been the result of always having one side of my nose completely locked up with congestion. It's starting to feel not so miserable anymore, but I wanted to know when it actually starts working like it's supposed to. I can't wait to be able to breathe, sleep, smell, and taste again!
