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

You have to take a certain kind of cough syrup. This has to be the one with less harmful drugs in it. Your doctor will tell you which ones are safe.

No such data is available for safety of ambroxol during early pregnancy. It is safe to use the same drug after 28 weeks of pregnancy. Another mucolytic drug is bromhexine. It is derived from plant source and is probably safe in pregnancy. It has been used for cough for centuries.

Go to the doctor. You should have had your MMR & DPT shots when you were younger. I hope you have a shot record. Maybe you can have a booster shot .

No, not every woman leaks colostrum during pregnancy. Some women do, some do not. It is different with each pregnancy as well. A woman might leak during her first pregnancy and not her second or she might leak during every pregnancy or never during any pregnancy. Either way is NORMAL.
