Ive been sick with this since the end of November!! Everyone else in my house got sick too and are all better already. I am a bit better and can at least breath at night now, but my sinuses are always hurting and giving me headaches. I am sick of constantly trying to blow this crap outta my nose...
I totally feel you. I haven't had one in years, but I used to get a horrible 3-4 week sinus infection every time the seasons changed... I would miss like two weeks of school and have to stay in a dark room cause I got such horrible migraines. One time, it spread to my lungs. Oh my gosh it was awful. I eventually got to the point where I could call my doctor and they just sent in a prescription for a z-pack because we both knew what the heck was going on. Now I am really on it with prevention using benedryl like pez candy... lol. Have you been to see a doctor? No sense in suffering when they can give you an rx to fix you up ASAP!!
Eta: Oh shoot. I have never had antibiotics while preggo. Idk if that is something you can do!!

I know how you feel. When I was pregnant with my son I had asthma problems. Here are some things you can do to help you clear those sinuses.
1. take a warm shower and hang out in the steamy bathroom to open you up.
2. Use saline to clean your nose (or a nedi pot) at least 2-3 times a day.
3. At night elevate you head with extra pillows
4. Exercise can help too. Its opens up the sinuses.
I did the saline and elevation and it was temporary relief for me.

I'm with you! I've had my sinus infection since before Thanksgiving. At least my asthma is no longer triggered by drainage. But I got a yeast infection from being on antibiotics for 1.5 weeks (it used to take 4 weeks on antibiotics to cause yeast). Diflucan one dose didn't work so I got a 3 day prescription cream last week. Once I got the yeast, I stopped the antibiotic. So by Saturday I was in pain from the sinuses again. I started the antibiotic back up. I've finished the 3rd day of cream, so I am really hoping that is over. I will be eating my yogurt religiously with my antibiotic to make sure this clears up.
