My face hurts so bad!

I'm pretty sure I have a sinus infection but I don't want any antibiotics as I'm pregnant and have had antibiotics throughout this pregnancy for various things. I'm afraid it'll damage the babies or something. Is there anything I can do? This Tylenol sinus isn't cutting it. My whole upper face hurts so bad and my nose mucous is so thick and green it's barely coming out when u blow. Ughhh

I had a sinus infection when pregnant. They gave me some that were safe for the baby. Not ideal, but I had to do something! My son is fine.

 wen a sinus infection doesnt go away on its own, it needs antibiotics. After 2 weeks or so, untreated, and not getting better, they will not go away on their own. go to the doc. ive had sinus surgery TWICE... Dont wait.

You need antibiotics. Whether you want them or not. Do you know what can happen if you leave a sinus infection untreated for too long?
