Welcome to HCM forum

Amoxycillin is safe in third trimester of pregnanacy

You can get IV fluids in the form of dextrose , amino acids for 2-3 days under doctor's guidance and advice but you have to get admitted to a hospital for one or two days

Soups and juices with milk are also better
Do saline gargles

Best wishes
