If you have an appointment this week, I’d hold out till then. Tylenol Cold & Sinus is okay to use during pregnancy, according to my OB, as well as Sinutabs, saline nasal sprays, and regular Mucinex. Sinus infections are common in pregnancy, and your OB will know what to do best (it will save you from possibly getting an RX for an antibiotic that isn’t necessarily pregnancy safe like some of my other doctors tried to do, my OB ended up giving me a different RX anyway).

I work in an urgent care, so I can be seen there for free, but all they tend to do is give out antibiotics haha, and I would rather not take them unless I REALLY really need them since most aren’t necessarily safe during pregnancy. I’ve been having bad sinus issues too, and have just been using tylenol for the sinus headaches/pain and a warm compress on my face – that helps the most.

Best of luck to you!

What about calling the OB’s office and talking to a nurse? Maybe they can give you some suggestions to tie you over until your appointment. Anytime I have an issue, I call the nurses line rather than make an appointment, as usually they can offer up some suggestions.

I call the OB’s office first, and see what they say. Most things they will take care of, I only go elsewhere if they recommend it.  It makes it easier not having to worry about what meds are pregnancy safe.
