  • As long as you can breathe, the baby will be fine. If you are coughing that hard you may pull a muscle or it might cause pain in your ribs. Both are normal, but don't take anything without calling your doctor. Congrats BTW!!

  • No coughing will not hurt your baby. Just take some cough syrup. Check with your dr to see whats ok but you will be fine. I coulgh now at 30 weeks and it just hurts cause I have no room but still safe for the baby.
