Every answer I've seen online says no, but from experience, I say yes! I never got an ear infection in my entire life until I was pregnant with my son. During that time I had not 1, but 4! They would alternate ears. I took antibiotics for the prescribed amount of time, the same time every day, and sure enough a few months later, I had another ear infection! After giving birth, I never had another one! Now, 2 years later, I have one. Surprise! Last month my husband and I were trying. So we will see! I will test in a couple of days. Anyway, I guess I am saying that yes, I believe you can get ear pain/ infections from pregnancy. If you look online it talks about increased mucous, swelling tissues in your nose, ears, etc... with all that going on, fluid can become easily trapped causing pain/infection. Hope this helps!
