    Are you looking for help with the cough or the naseau/vomiting? For "morning" sickness I take zofran and swear by it. Hope you feel better!

    I've had the same-- though I get sick without the cough as well. I finally realised that in my case the cough is part of the ms. I'd ask your dr. If you have a mild chest infection, they can give you antibiotics (amoxicillin). I know in my case, I only seem to cough when I move around and get out of bed for some reason.

    If you are having reflux, that can also cause a cough and is pretty common in pregnancy... have you tried taking gaviscon or any sort of antacids to see if that helps? liquid ones are best if its causing a cough and gaviscon is perfectly safe for pregnancy!
