Infections : Infections of this type are not more common in pregnancy. It may be that you had been exposed to someone with an infection recently. Check with your OB if you do not improve over the next week or two. Sometimes it takes a while (several weeks) for hoarseness to improve after a viral infection. I hope you don't smoke since that can slow healing and be bad for the baby.
