Sorry you're feeling yucky. I don't have any great advice except that I always use my saline nasal spray when I start to get sick or have post-nasal drip. Pre-pregnancy, I would have suggested a hot toddy (LOL), but maybe just some tea with honey and lemon would soothe your throat? Hope you're feeling better soon!

I was using Sudafed when I got that a few weeks ago. It helped almost immediately.

I also use a neti pot (actually I use the squeeze bottle) to try to prevent any type of build up or infection in there.
