hi there
am dr.surendiran
nice to meet you here in HCMagic
Take medication only on the advice of a practitioner who knows you are pregnant, and only when it is absolutely necessary.
As you had your symptoms for more than five days,it is advisable to take medications under an valid practitioner

Some remedies that is safe for pregnancies is inhalation of a steam vaporizer, humidifier, or steaming kettle. Place the humidifier on a chair. Spend 15 minutes 3 or 4 times a day under the tent; extend the time to 30 minutes if you aren't too uncomfortable. Don't stay under the tent if you become uncomfortably warm. Keep the humidifier near your bedside when you are sleeping or resting.
drinking additional fluids,Drink 8 ounces of liquid every hour, including water, juices, soups. Hot fluids (here comes the chicken soup) are best.
hope helped your query

Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Severe cough with breathing difficulty could be indicative of asthma. A lung infection (atypical pneumonia) also has to be ruled out.

Since you have been experiencing these symptoms for more than 5 days and did not get relief from simple symptomatic treatments, I would advise you to see a doctor for a proper examination and further treatment. During the early part of pregnancy, it is always better to take any medication only under the advise of a doctor.

Wish you all the best.
