HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

At your stage of pregnancy, it is normally advised that no unnecessary medications be used also it is absolutely needed.

The most common cause of acute onset of cough is a viral illness. This would resolve with symptomatic treatment such as fluids, rest.
Normally these illnesses resolve after 7 to 14 days.
If the cough is severe ,then you visit your doctor for assessment to rule out any bacterial aspect.

The cold should not harm the baby or cause any problems in the pregnancy.

I hope this helps
