The soreness is mostly attributed to your high progesterone levels that occur in pregnancy. If it is in the breasts, you can give hot compresses locally. If the inside of the chest is sore, then it may due to Gastritis. In such a case, consume plenty of water and take bland food.

Please avoid taking any medicine as much as possible.

Hope this helps.

Take care.
