I just called my friend who is 33 weeks pregnant. She has a bad cold, sinus infection, and ear infection. They say it is bacterial. They want her on antibiotics starting tonight. Does she have any alternatives? She is high risk pregnancy as it is. They said they don't want her to be sick at all. Is it better to go ahead and take the antibiotics, or to try something else? Any suggestions would be appreciated. I'm going to call her back in a few minutes.
