Thanks for the query.
During pregnancy some amount of vasodilatation and increased blood volume may be seen.
But as your symptoms are non specific to pregnancy, you once consult ENT doctor and get examined to find out any possible infection.
After that depending on the examination findings you can go for treatment.
If needed you can use antibiotic drops or decongestant drops with his advice.
Opening the mouth intermittently during journey can help by decreasing the pressure the ears.
For more details you can ask me through:
Take care.
