SJ, it sounds like you have sinusitis, but I can’t say for sure without examining you first. The problem is that you can’t really take strong medicine especially since you’re less than 12 weeks pregnant. If you don’t have fever you can wait a bit longer before going back to your doctor, but otherwise you will have to go back for more antibiotics. Good luck.
