I have one. Yuck. To go to the doctor or not, that is the question. I'm so anti doctor I just get sick of going.

I would try the nasal flush.

yeah, i've got nasal spray which helps with the congestion but not the teeth hurting....and i drink tea with honey to soothe my throat from the drainage, but when my teeth hurt it normally means i need an antiobiotic.

i wonder if my ob would prescribe that? i have an appt this afternoon with her which is why i don't want to have to see another doctor today too

Have you tried Sudafed? I had a nasty sinus infection earlier in the pregnancy and Sudafed helped me alot, especially with the head congestion and pressure! I hope you feel better soon!

I had a really bad one a few weeks ago and put off going to the doc because...it's such a pain!

thanks everyone. my OB quickly wrote me a prescription for a z pack and i'm two pills into it. hopefully i sleep better tonight than i did last night. and to top it all off, the drainage made me puke today. that's only the second time this whole pregnancy so that was very weird for me.
