Answer: Hello dear. When you become pregnant, your immune system is likely to change. As a result of these changes, you may contract a cold or a cough at some point during your pregnancy. In addition, your illness may last longer.
Place a humidifier in your room, keep your head elevated on your pillow while resting, or use nasal strips. You can take steam or even inhale eucalyptus which gives some relief.
Fevers during pregnancy are never normal, so an exam is always recommended. If fever is caused by a viral illness mild medication would do. If it's caused by bacterial, an antibiotic is often needed. Please consult your gynecologist for checking on this.
