Question: Mujhe bohot khasi ho rahi he...what to do?
Answer: Hi dear, if you are suffering from dry cold then some of the things you can do to find relief from a dry cough during pregnancy are:
Drink plenty of water. Keeping your body hydrated is paramount during pregnancy. So drink a lot of water, which will help control a case of a dry cough too.
Try drinking lukewarm water with lemon to find relief from a cough.
Another great way to soothe an irritated throat and dry cough is honey.
Add some honey to warm water and drink it. But do ask your doctor if it is okay for you to consume honey while pregnant because some people can react negatively to it.
Cough drops are ever popular and an easy (though temporary) method of cough control. Ask your doctor to recommend a good, pregnancy safe cough drop to find relief.
Sleeping during pregnancy, especially when you are suffering from a cough, can be tough.
Try to elevate your head with pillows to help you deal with a pregnancy and dry cough induced insomnia.
If an allergy is what is causing your coughing bouts, simply stay away from potential allergens. Dust, strong odors (perfumes), cleaning products, etc. can all cause a dry cough and should be avoided.
Your immune system needs a boost when you are pregnant.
So, fill your menu with immune strengthening foods.
Try adding orange juice to your diet, which contains vitamin C and can strengthen your immune system
