Welcome to ehealthforum

If you are feeling sore throat and stuffy feeling in the nose and throat then it is sometimes present during pregnancy due to the changes in the hormonal level.You can do hot water gargle and use throat Lozenges.
Kindly avoid any medication before consulting your Primary Physician.If the symptoms worsen consider visiting a Gynaecologist for evaluation.

Take Care!
