You might have: tonsillitis or strep throat. Have a doctor take a look at you. Antibiotics might be necessary.

Your lymph nodes are: actually felt from the outside (your neck...what most people call "swollen glands.") What you are describing are your tonsils which are in the back of the throat and are different sizes in different people. They do swell up as they are helping to fight throat infections. You could have strep throat/strep tonsillitis or a viral infection (such as mono). Please see your doctor to be diagnosed.

Sore throat lozenges: Congrats on your pregnancy! believe it or not, pregnancy and OTC (over the counter) meds are not mutually exclusive -- 9 months is a long time to go without a headache tablet or an allergy medication! many OTC meds are safe in pregnancy but make sure to check with your ob/gyn. For now, many of the names you know -- cepacol, chloraseptic, hall's, and ricola are fine.
