I just had a sinus infection with symptoms similar to yours.  It has been awful and today I am starting to feel better after 5 days.  I was put on Amoxicillin an antibiotic that is totally safe.  I also found out that you can take Robitussin and/or Benadryl.  The robitussin did little for me.  The Benadryl I would only take when I need sleep because it really zonks me out.  But after taking it yesterday and getting some sleep, I do feel better!  Good luck and if it feels like an infection call about those antibiotics!

I am 5 months pregnant. I have this sinus infection (that started on sat) I didnt know I had one until I called the doctor and asked. they gave me antibiotic called Azithromycin and its sorta helping. The woman at the doc off ice said I would be ok to take Sudafed and Robitusin. Well, we bought the Sudafed PE nighttime cold and the Sudafed PE cold and cough. I am so worried it will hurt the baby. I keep feeling my stomach to see if he is still breakdancing in there...yep he is. But I feel like I am going crazy everytime I take a sudafed I think is it harming him? am I crazy?
