coughing could only bring on labour if your body was ready to labour at the end, such as your waters being ready to go etc, it wil not make a difference to your cervix or anything, and it wont make you labour honestly, people talk such crap sometimes dont believe everythig you hear hunny xxx

I really don't think you have anything to worry about! I got asthma and suffer with bronchitis quite often and I didn't even go into labour with my DD at all. Had to be induced when I was 14 days overdue and I was coughing loads for months! The only thing I found was that it hurts with a big bump!

Agree with the above. And what a lovely thing to say to someone

When I had flu a couple of months ago it brought on my Asthma and I was coughing really hard for days, I could feel my (very little at the time) bump sucking in each time I coughed it was awful. When the doc called to check up on me I asked her about it and she said that coughing can do no harm to the baby at all and it certainly doesn't bring on labour unless you're ready.
