I agree it's horrible, but paracetamol is fine, vapour rub too and plain strepsils. Why not pop to your pharmacy and ask what they can give you? My local Sainsbury has a great pharmacy and they loaded me up with over the counter medicines suitable in pregnancy.
As others said, paracetamol is safe. If uou have fever, make sure, your temperature does not go above 38, because high temperatures are dangerous for baby. If paracetamol is not enough to keep temperature down, contact the doctor. Hope you feel better soon!
Thank you for all the replies. I was really unwell last night in which case I called 111 & they were very helpful, booked me an appointment with out of hours doctor. Doctor said I had border line temperature 37.7. He also advised me to carry on with paracetamol & prescribed me Amoxicillin as I had bacteria infection. Urine was also checked but that was all fine. Blood pressure was also fine. Only after 3 Amoxicillin tabs for far I am feeling much better.
Would you advise me to carry on the Amoxicillin course for 7 days or as I'm better should just finish taking them?
Definitely finish antibiotics - it is more dangerous to start and not finish, as it could lead to drug resistant bacterial infection and need of stronger antibiotics. Amoxicillin is safe during pregnancy, including the first trimester. I actually had to take it myself when ~6 weeks pregnant and did a bit of research before starting taking it. Glad you feel better and got the right treatment.
