Anyone Have An Ear Infection When Pregnant

Hi just wandering if anyone has had an ear infection during pregnancy and what treatment you were given for it if any. I had a sore throat for 3 days which hurt when I swallowed and last night I started getting pain in my right ear and it feels like it has fluid in. I am only 4 weeks pregnant and I phoned the doctors who gave me an appointment for tomorrow morning. I have just been told I can take paracetamol in the mean time. Does anyone know also if having an ear infection can harm the baby in any way.

Hi Gem. my sister-in-law is 19weeks pregnant and has a nasty sinus/ear infection at the moment. The doctor put her on a low dose of amoxicillin and she was told that it would not harm the baby in any way. So, I don't think you need to worry. Hope you're feeling better soon. Take care

Also it may not be an ear infection. If you have a sore throat maybe your ear just feels like it hurts, since it is all connected. That happens to me alot.
