Ear infection

Am 36+2 today and I think I may be developing an ear infection.

Has anyone else had one with pg? X

I had quite a few while pregnant with my DCs. Most of the time I needed antibiotics.

I'd see the GP as ear infections can be nasty. Being close to term it would be best to get it treated ASAP as the last thing you'll need with a newborn is an ear infection.

That's what I was thinking. I am going to see if it develops overnight and if yes chase up the out of hours docs over the weekend xx

Yes, it was awful! Ended up on antibiotics and co-codamol. The antibiotics gave me awful thrush so for about 2 weeks I was in pain in all directions!! Warm olive oil really helped me and keeping the ear warm.

I did with DS, to the extent I saw doctors at the ear nose and throat clinic at hospital as normal antibiotics didn't shift it.

See a GP as soon as possible, ear infections are awful :-(
