coughing

I have a head cold and doing all this coughing will it hurt the baby I hope not and can you take anything for the cold while you pregnant
I have actually been through that when i was around my 10-12th weeks of pregnancy. I had a VERY bad cough along with gagging and lots of PHLEGM EWW!! lol and plus i stopped smoking also so my body was cleaning itself out ,but my doctor prescribed me some robitussin with NO ALCOHOL and it worked like a charm. I am not sure if they sell that over the counter but if you go to the drug store you can ask but remember its NO ALCOHOL. Hope i helped.
I've been coughing for quite some time now and I just hit 19 weeks and my doctor tells me my baby is perfectly healthy and fine.
I have had really bad colds off and on with this pregnancy and with the last one, I had a cough for about a week. Try taking a spoonful of honey with lemon to soothe your throat or drink tea. If the cough persists, I would see the doctor, maybe they could recommend something.

i have a really bad cold and every time i cough there is a sharp pain in my stomach,can it hurt the baby at all?this is my first pregnancy and i am worried about alot of things.plz tell me if the baby is ok i am 17 weeks.
im 12 weeks pregnant and the coughing(mostly in the evenings and the morning) is so bad sometimes that it makes me throw up (ive only actually thrown up twice, but ive gagged and 'almost'thrown up a few times) ...i take benadryl-D to help me sleep and halls cough drops during the day..also tylenol when the cough gives me a headache...my question is: is there a chance my coughing could hurt the baby? and do you think its possible i might be developing bronchitis? or something along that line?
That's happening to me too cause I just got out of a cold, and I'm scare because last year the same thing happened to me and in one cough my water broke and my son died cause I was just 17 weeks, so now I'm taking robitussin to see if it helps
so my question is, if my childs lungs SOUND clear and the dr says there is nothing wrong, and she is sickly and coughing all of the time and being perscribed tons of meds... how do i say enough is enough?? because i know they are trying, to help so, how do i go further on, to help her when there are no answers? just un-presented symptoms?
This morning i found myself coughing up blood !Is this normal during pregnancy R is this something serious?
I have tried acupuncture and yoga to help decrease my stress/anxiety associated with both the pregnancy and the skipped beats and while it worked at first, it's not really helping anymore. Has anyone else had pregnancy induced PVCs/PACs? Did they go away once you had your baby or will I have to live like this forever? Any feedback to my situation would be most gratefully received.

You can take Tylenol Cold, and at this point if you're coughing, you can take Robitussin (sp?). Anything else, ask your doctor.

Well hunney, whether its your first or your tenth(god help you) You worry with every pregnancy, you worry when their in your belly and you worry when there out!!!
Has anyone reading this had this kind of experience during pregnancy? And if so, what helped besides bed rest? What was the outcome?
I avoided teas not because they are all bad during pregnancy it was just hard to keep up with the list so I just drank hot water and squeezed lemon and honey in it and seemed to help me a lot when I had a cold.
I have done my first IVF, Egg transfer Sunday the 26/07/09 it is now 3 days since transfer and I started coughing yesterday, when sleeping it becomes worst. Can this affect implantation?
I am only 17wks 5days and Today I was running errands and I was on my way home and I coughed and almost peed my pants! I didn't think this would even come close to happening until mid to late 3rd trimester. When does this usually start?
Yesterday, i was driving and i coughed kinda hard (allergies, and the mucus makes me cough :/ ) and when i coughed i got a sharp pain really low in the center, as if i hurt my cervix or something. The pain only lasted a minute but it hurt pretty bad. I didn't experience any bleeding, but is that normal? I was worried i hurt my baby somehow. Im 24 weeks btw. So is this something that just happens or should i be worried?
Ok so ive had a cough for a weeks now and the past few days everytime i cough its so painful for my upper stomach. Like my stomach is going to rip open. Anyone experience this before?
Wait...my drs said NOTHING with DM as far as the cough and colds go...but the puffers should be fine...they are just as needed. I would call today to double check though...
I am 10 weeks pregnant & for the last week I have been coughing. (this certainly doesn't make the severe nausea any better) anyway, the coughing has gotten much worse. I can berely sleep, I coughed so much last night. Other than the cough, I don't have any other cold symptoms really.... It is kinda a dry cough, with a tickle that makes it feel something is stuck in my throat. The caugh is very harsh & is making me horse.
I've been sneezing, coughing and feel like there is a haze covering my brain!! On top of the already fabulous"baby brain" lol. What would be the best and safest medicine to help with symptoms so I don't have to worry about mixing drugs?
As well as these exercises, practise tightening up the pelvic floor muscles before and during coughing and sneezing.
I'm taking heparin shots and baby aspirin as preventative care for pregnancy. I've had 2 miscarriages. My HCG and progesterone levels are good. HCG is doubling and Prog. is ranging from 21.7-29.9. The doctor said it will fluctuate. Anyone else on this regimen? Any feedback??
) A couple of months after the 2nd birth, i started smoking again due to stress (marital problems). I was still carrying a lot of the pregnancy weight so i went to a doctor that i knew would give me phentermine. So i've been taking phentermine on and off for 6 months. For the past month, i've been coughing up clear sputum, sometime looks like there's gel-balls or bubbles. It's hard to explain. Should i be worried about this?
I wake up coughing my head off, stuffed up nose, and my ears are closed up. It is worse in the morning and night. I have read that the coughing won't hurt the baby. Trying to get to sleep is ridiculous. So far I'm just going with honey cough drops. I tried honey and lemon tea last night and that seemed to help me get to sleep. Just wondering what you guys think will help. I'm in my first trimester so I'm trying to be careful.
During pregnancy incontinence is very common, so it is likely that you just peed a little when you coughed.
