  • With pregnant women being at risk for swine flu, YES call your dr. It may not be S. flu but your immune system is down due to the pregnancy. Be safe.

  • I would call your doc and see what they recommend. I would stay away from the ER, there are a lot of really sick people there with things that you really don't want exposure to.

    I use a mixture of honey with lemon juice. It soothes the throat and bronchial tubes. I also suck on cough drops or peppermint candies. Make sure that you drink a lot to keep hydrated and to wash the junk out of your throat that is dripping down to make you cough.

  • coughing is not good while prenanat you should take somethign for that try the honey and lemon in tea and call your doctor they will know what you can and cant take remember caughing causes lots of involentary mussles to contract eaven ones down by your bladder (you may notice you pee a drop or two when you cough) so if it onvolves those mussles it oculd be affecting the baby
