Brief Answer:
regular steam inhalation and home remedies

Detailed Answer:

Congratulations to your wife and you on the pregnancy.

No, there is no problem or serious health concern with getting cold in the 3rd month of pregnancy.

Please resort to home remedies such a warm milk with a pinch of turmeric and kesar. Ask you wife to take regular steam inhalation to get rid of the cold. She must keep herself warm, and also drink only warm water. Avoid refrigerated and cold foods.

She should be fine soon. I would not suggest her to take any medicine or tablet as she is pregnant and this is a precious pregnancy.

Hope this helps you.
