  • You may feel like you can't breathe but you must be able to or you would be dead! You need to go to an urgent care center or ER. Since you are pregnant it's important to get diagnosed and treated right away.

  • green or yellow sputum=infection. maybe theirs wasn't, but it's very likely yours is. i would go to urgent care. they can give you an antibiotic that is safe to use while pregnant. i've been sick SOOOO many times since i got pregnant... and it seems that it's been 10 times worse than what it normally would have been.

  • You can try gargling salt water for some relief.

    Even if it is just a cold, you'll need to be extra careful about getting the oxygen you need. Keep a watch out for signs of dizziness or feeling light headed.
