Dry cough, nasal congestion, mild fever with night sweats

Hi, I m in my third trimester....28 weeks to be exact and i have had a dry cough for 2 weeks with nasal congestion . the mucus is clear but thick. I have been using the netti pot and taking robitusin and regular psuedafed. i m also having low grade fevers and night sweats . Is this just due to an increase in my hormone levels or something more serious? and is there anything else i can do to re-leave my symptoms ?

This isnt related to your pregnancy.Sounds more like a upper respiratory infection.One thing you need to rule out is tuberculosis.If negative,then its a simple URTI.Meanwhile take menthol inhalation.You can try any cough syrup for the cough.I would advise seeing a doctor,to rule out pneumonia.Your chest will need to be auscultated.
