Hi, I have gone through your question.Congestion is common in pregnancy because of the hormonal changes. Occasional sneezing is normal, but if you have recurring sneezing problem, then I would suggest you to consult an ENT specialist to get properly examined, investigated and treated.
In the meantime, I would suggest you to have steam inhalation once a day to relieve congestion.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Wishing you good health.
