    Default Blocked ears?

    Has anyone experienced blocked ears during pregnancy? I'm only 6w preg but for the last 2 days my ears have been popping constantly! Got my uncle who is an ENT dr to check them and they aren't infected or anything!

    So I was wondering if this might be because of pregnancy?

    It's really weird!

    I also had really blocked ears that kept popping from about 6-10 weeks (my morning sickness overtook it eventually and I didn't notice it any more).

    I checked with an audiologist friend and she said its pretty common! Something to do with blood flow???

    If there's no pain or infection I wouldn't be too concerned. If it doesn't go away or starts to hurt get your GP to check it out!

    RainbowRoad-my ears were constantly blocking during my latest pregnancy! Even more annoying-I couldn't pop them at all! Just had to wait for them to unblock themselves!! Drove me crazy!

    I have the same thing! Thought it was just me. It always happens when I'm lecturing and I can't judge how loud I'm speaking lol
