Congratulations first.
Its important to treat infections in pregnancy (cold in your case) for 2 reasons one it gets flared easily and second it can lead to preterm labor.
Please see an ENT specialist who will give you correct medication.
Please take steam inhalation thrice daily.
Also take tab vit c 500 mg once daily.
Local nasal sprays are very helpful in reducing inflammation.
If you are running fever please take paracetamol. If pus is seen on examination you may need antibiotic course.
Avoid intake of cold and sour things and eat egular healthy meals.
Avoid temperature fluctuations, dust.
Overall cold takes 7 days and simple cold doesnot cause significant problem for a pregnancy.Cetrizine is commonly prescribed for cold.
