Hi
Welcome to health care Magic and thanks for putting up the query
It is better to avoid medicines during pregnancy.
You should take steam inhalation and do hexidine gargle.
Try home remedies like honey ginger in warm water for cough.
There are medicines safe in pregnancy which can be prescribed in case of need.
Any further questions are always welcome.
Take care
Thanks and regards
