Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Swollen ankles can be due to high blood pressure so get it checked soon.Bad cough can stimulate early pains so you need antibiotic for that also.Not being able to catch the breath is due to the space occupied in your abdomen by the baby. This will subside only after delivery.
