Dying of sore throat! Any suggestions??

I am 18 weeks pregnant and woke up this morning feeling so sick! My fever finally broke (with the one Tylenol we can take :/) but now I have a horrible sore throat and a ton of congestion with of course the nagging headache! Any home remedies you ladies can share would be awesome!

Vicks vapor rub to the neck always helped with my sore throats :-)  and it's pregnancy friendly!

Gargle warm salt water worked for me.

I am a little apprehensive about gargling with warm salt water since I still have horrible nausea but right now I am willing to try anything, thank you!

I had a sore throat when I got up too, along with a stuffy nose. I wish I could just have a cough drop. :( I cant fall asleep. Ahhh.

My doctor said no to cough drops. :(

No cough drops? Weird. How about throat spray?
