Is there anything you can take?!
I have had a cold since the start of my pregnancy, with *tmi* yucky stuff streaming down my throat and now I have a cough too :( I'm pretty sure it is the only reason I am still feeling/being sick as it only happens when I am having a coughing fit! Trying to make a Drs appointment at the moment but the line is constantly engaged :(

I was drinking hot honey, lemon and ginger which was soothing. A Chinese man working in boots pharmacy said that he fries ginger, pours full fat juice (coke/lemonade) into the pan and heats before drinking. The sugary drink coats and soothes your throat and the ginger heals....apparently!!!!

You can buy a medicine from boots for your cough. It's honey glycerine and lemon, it's not going to work miracles but it'll soothe your cough and it's safe to use in pregnancy.

Thank everyone. Went to the Drs and he prescribed me some anti sickness tablets for if it became unbearable. Got some Benylin Glycerol & Liquid Sugar cough medicine and some soothers so hopefully that will all help.
