What colour is your snot? Are you coughing anything up?
I would head off to the doctor just incase
Panadol, olive leaf extract and some nice lemon/honey drink (which doesnt taste nice imo )

The Doctor will most likely just tell you to rest, stay VERY hydrated (which helps immensely), take Paracetemol or Panadeine (if headaches are quite bad) and salt water gargles.
I used to use saline drops for my nose, vapourisor at bedtime to keep the room humid and not dry which would irritate my throat further and have honey, garlic and lemon in some hot water and sip as a tea. If my head was pounding I would take paracetemol.
You can take tablets with Dexchlorpheniramine or Chlorpheniramine when you're pregnant, but those are only really recommended if you have Influenza which you don't. For the common cold I would be just sticking to all of the above and drinking lot's of water.
Hope you feel better soon.

If your work place has air con, that won't be hleping much either, so I would try and get some vitamin D and fresh air. I forgot to also mention that sometimes dairy can irritate the sinus' too, so whilst I am not saying to cut out dairy, maybe cut back a bit to help with the mucus. Ah... the joys of pregnancy and colds!

It has been ridiculously hot here in Adelaide so I really think that the hot/cold/hot/cold has contributed to this!
Being inside with air-con and then going outside into the boiling hot - change of temps, doesn't help.
All I feel like doing is sleeping!!!!
A cold in Summer is the worst!
