I am 11 weeks and this past week my ears keep popping all the time. Especially when I eat something, I am guessing it's pregnancy related but I didn't have it with my last pregnancy. Anybody else having this odd symptom? Thinking I might need to book a doctors appointment.
Yes i've had this since about 18 weeks or so. It's like my hearing fades temporarily and feels like my ears need to pop. I'm 34 weeks now and it's still happening. It happens more when i've been rushing around a lot, I haven't noticed it being more prevalent when i'm eating.
I did mention it at a midwife appointment and she wasnt particularly worried. She said it could be related to balance and that if I felt well otherwise (i.e. no other symptoms suggesting it could be an infection), then not to worry about it.
It might be worth you mentioning it to your midwife when you next have an appointment though.
I do wonder if ear issues are a pregnancy thing - I'm 18 weeks and my left eardrum perforated itself about a month ago (so painful!) and I'm only now getting my hearing back. Still getting popping sensations!
