Pregnant with cough, stuffed nose. Is the baby safe?

I m having colds during my 4th month of pregnancy. Maybe because of the changing weather here in China. And I got wet from the rain when I m outside (but just a bit) At first it s just a stuffy nose then I think I m having cough now. I always check my temperature but no fever . Is cough and colds safe for my baby. Kinda worried. Please help. Thank you.

Thanks for your question.

Pregnant women may also have cough & cold like normal people. Generally it has no known adverse effect at this stage of pregnancy unless you are having high grade fever.

However many infectious diseases present as cough & cold in the start, so, if it do not settle within a couple of days, you develop any rash or you have a history of contact with someone with a known infectious disease you must report this to your treating obstetrician for expert opinion.

Wish you best of luck
