Dear Rehana,

Since you are a patient of RHD, these symptoms of fever and cough are ominous for you. And you have reached 36 weeks of pregnancy.

So in my opinion you need to consult your doctor and you may even need admission.

Meanwhile do steam inhalation for the cough.
Go to a hospital as soon as possible.

Hope for the best.
Dr. Juhi
