In any case, the general rule of thumb is: take medication only on the advice of a practitioner who knows you are pregnant, and only when it is absolutely necessary.

One treatment that is safe for pregnancies is inhalation of a steam vaporizer, humidifier, or steaming kettle. You can prepare a tent by draping a sheet over an open umbrella that is resting on a chair back. Place the humidifier on a chair. Spend 15 minutes 3 or 4 times a day under the tent; extend the time to 30 minutes if you aren't too uncomfortable. Don't stay under the tent if you become uncomfortably warm. Keep the humidifier near your bedside when you are sleeping or resting.

Another treatment is drinking additional fluids. Drink 8 ounces of liquid every hour, including water, juices, soups. Hot fluids (here comes the chicken soup) are best. Limit milk intake only if recommended by your doctor.

As far as any over-the-counter or prescription medications, you should seek advice from your doctor. Not 100% of the medication, over-the-counter or prescription, herbal or not, works 100% of the time for 100% of the women or is 100% safe for those women. Other medications should be discussed with your doctor if your coughing is out of hand or due to some other illness.

Whenever I or someone in m family has a cough we mix 1 teaspoon of honey with 2 teaspoons of lemon juice - the liquid will be quite thick so u dont have to swallow all in one go - split taking that small amount in 3 intervals - you should notice the cough easing off quite soon after . Good luck
