I ve had 5 lots of different antibiotics as I

had a ear infection I was giving amoxicillin which didn't clear it and then erythromycin 500mg to takke 4 times a day for 5 days when I was 22 weeks pregnant I checked with the pharmacist and they said it should be fine. So I took it and it did make me feel sick but it did take are of my ear infection. But I ve have been so very so worried and terrified it might of affected the baby's development in some way. I hate taking anything when pregnant and feel very paranoid about it. ? As dont usually taken antibiotics at all and wish hadn't a ear infection. Doctor said everything was developed at 22 weeks but I still dont feel any better

I can totally identify with this. However has your infection gone?
Was there a specific reason the doctor gave you oral antibiotics instead of ear drops?
If those antibiotics haven't worked it could be that your infection is fungal and you need some canesten ear drops.

It seems heavy handed to give you tablets instead of drops.
