    I've had a blocked ear for about 10 days, and it's driving me nuts. Just googled and seems it can be a pregnancy thing. It's really pissing me off. I just feel like a walking whinge bag. I have bad morning (all day) sickness, a blocked ear, low blood pressure and now thrush. I am just repulsive.

    Hmmm, weird. I don't seem to have ear wax, but just my ear blocks and I can't hear properly unless I swallow and it unblocks. It makes my own voice SO loud in my head. It's just gross.

    Yes! My ears have felt blocked on and off since about 14 weeks! (I'm 29+3 now). And in the last few weeks, I've definitely noticed a big increase in earwax. . . Definitely doesn't help me feel attractive :haha:

    Yes! I asked the doctor about it on Monday at my appt. She didn't say it was pregnancy related but reckons there is some blockage in a tube caused by congestion as aam310 said.

    Yes.

    I had it with my first, and I have it again now. It's like I am constantly underwater. I can't make out a word people say unless I am looking at their mouth as they speak. Some days it sounds like a airplane is flying around in my head.

    I've spoken to two different doctors and three MWs. They all say it's preggo related but don't know what causes it. Most likely due to the extra fluid we have during pregnancy.

    It went almost straight away after I had my first, fingers crossed that happens again this time!
