Hallo Nthabiseng
None of the anti-allergy medications are proven to be 100% safe in pregnancy, but some have been tested in pregnant animals and seems to be relatively safe to use after the first 12 weeks. Ones one can use if the allergy is really bad are clarityne or zyrtec ( or generic equivalents) Using a saline nasal spray may also help.
