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. ...Read more

Is it safe for a physically active woman to do a strenuous mountain hike to an altitude of about 3500m during the first trimester of pregnancy?

Not safe: The air at 3500 meters (over 10, 000 ft) above sea level is significantly thinner and has less oxygen in it than you are used to. It is not a good idea to expose your developing baby to reduced oxygen (hypoxia), and the hazard would be greatest in the first trimester. This is especially true if you have a heart or lung problem (asthma). Mountain sickness at altitude is another hazard to your baby. ...Read more
