Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
By your history and description, possibility of lung infection is more likely.
So take amoxicillin or cefixime antibiotic for 7 days.
Drink plenty of fluids orally and keep yourself hydrated.
Do warm water gargles 5-6 times a day.
These antibiotics are safe in pregnancy.
Don't worry, you will be alright with all these.
Hope I have solved your query.
I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
