Thanks for the query.

There is possibility of throat infection which is leading to these problems.
Any type of infection to be treated early and carefully during pregnancy.
So better consult gynecologist to get examined and take antibiotic course to treat the infection.
As you are not having systemic features like fever etc there may not be much effect on the baby if treated early.
Take care
