Deep vein thrombosis: Deep vein thrombosis, that is clots in the deep veins, can develop when being in a seated position for long hours. Pregnancy increases this risk. If you have to travel, you need to get out of your seat and move around at least once an hour. Also maintain hydration during that time. Depends on where you're travelling to, you need to make sure you are vaccinated properly. Talk to your OB about that.

See your doctor: If it is a virus, all you can do is supportive care such tylenol (acetaminophen) and nasal saline spray. However; if it is a bacterial infection you will need antibiotics. Pneumonia and bad sinsus infections can occur in the setting of pregnancy so do not hesitate to seek medical care.
