Anyone else dealing with this? It's always my left ear and it happens all the time. Mostly it's just at night, but today it was all freaking day. It's completely random and I've been dealing with it for a couple months now. I think I remember reading somewhere that someone had it the whole 9 months.... don't remember where though...

My left ear has felt like it had fluid in it since the beginning of the pregnancy. I have no idea why, I've asked all my docs about it. Since I had the sinus infection in June & July (and still have the feeling of fluid in that ear) they are going to do a CT scan after baby comes just to check it. I've wondered if its because I lay on my left side more, that whatever fluid (or whatever it is) isn't going into that ear because of gravity from sleeping on my L. side? Its annoying.
I feel like I have a lot more wax in my ears lately...? (eww). Especially in the mornings, I wake up feeling like I NEED a qtip immediately because my ear feels gross and wet or something. I think it's just the changes in our sinuses, etc, because of the pregnancy hormones.
you all may want to try flushing your ears with peroxide. I have to have my ears cleaned at the Dr office at least once a year, I produce a lot of wax for my tiny ears and qtips just make it worse so I rarely use them... but once in awhile I'll either put a few drops of peroxide in them and let it drain after it stops bubbling, or wet a qtip with some and try cleaning my ears that way... helps a lot.
