I'm in my third trimester now and I've had a bad cold of 3 weeks now. My OB has been having me try cough drops,Robitussin,Mucinex and I even did the 5 day Z-PAC and I'm still suffering. I've also had tea with honey and held a heat pack on my chest but the coughing and hacking is still going strong along with chest tightness I'm in complete hibernation mode  :( any suggestions?? And can I use Vicks Vapor rub on my chest?

I looked it up and yes Vicks is safe to use durring pregnancy.  You can also buy some peppermint essential oil and put a few drops on a hot compress and put that on your chest or put a few drops into a humidfier and run it all day.

Hope you feel better soon.  Being sick is no fun as it is, being sick when your pregnant is really no fun!

 You can also try Vicks BabyRub if you're concerned. One thing my OB told me is that if it's safe to put on baby, it's safe to put on while pregnant. :) Hope you're feeling better now!
