Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
If you have suffered tonsil infection then you need to take a antibiotic which your doctor has rightly prescribed. Amoxi clav is a antibiotic that is safe in pregnancy so you can take the complete course as prescribed.It will not affect the baby.
Thanks

I have a cold that started yesterday with intense congestion. All day today I have had alot of plegm along with runny nose and coughing.
