Hello and hope you are doing well.

There are tubes called 'Eustachian  tubes' which connect the middle ear to the throat, this balances the air pressure in the ears. This tube can get  blocked due to infections of the throat, which can give lead to a feeling of fullness in the ears. This can cause a popping sensation when air passes through intermittently. This can also result in infection of the ears. The blocked ears can be opened up by the valsalva maneuver, where air is gently blown into the cheeks against a closed nostrils, this sometimes helps to open up the tubes. Steam inhalations and warm salt water gargles can help clear the tube. If it persists please consult your family physician and do not take any OTC medications without consulting your doctor as you are pregnant.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
