Sniffling through allergy season

If you get regular allergy shots to keep seasonal sniffling and sneezing at bay, you should tell your doctor or allergist when you become pregnant. Some allergy injections pose the risk (albeit small) of premature labor.

Experts recommend decreasing or eliminating allergy treatment during pregnancy, and warn against starting allergy therapy during pregnancy.
