20 weeks pregnant with dry cough
Asked Aug 13, 2009, 04:22 PM
I would appreciate any advice, I'm currently 20 weeks pregnant and had been having a flu (fever, cold and cough). I went to see an OB 2days ago and advised me to just take vitamins c and lots of water/liquid intake otherwise if I won't not get well she'll give me antibiotics. Today my fever went down, just got slight colds but my cough had gotten worse, and dry. To the point that my stomach would already ache when I cough. I really don't want to take any medicines at this point, its my first baby and Im afraid of the effects medicines will have on her. So question is, any natural remedies I can take which will not be harmful to the baby? Thanks a lot guys.
