  • I have never heard of anyone being sick and it causing a miscarriage. I was sick early on in my pregnancy and my ear hurt bad also. It was just clogged from having a bad cold. They did an ear wash on my ear. The doctor can give you something to take care of your cough, cold and your ear.

  • It is actually quite common for pregnant woment to have sinus infections and colds during pregnancy, both of which can lead to ear infections. I am sure as long as treated properly you should be fine.
