Hi there ashtonsmum

I suffer from sinus as well - you can take panadeine and mersendol, both are safe for pregnancy for something stronger (my GP said these were both safe)
There is a natural remedy from the chemist, made by Bauer, called Sinus Relief. They're a homeopathic remedy and the pharmacist said the tablets relieve and help heal your sinus's.
Another thing I do is rest with hot and cold packs on my face, as well as steam inhalation (i.e boiled water and towel over your head) The inhalations help clear the sinus passages, sometimes I also rub vicks on-also helps clear the head.
I hope this helps!!!
