Can't Stop Coughing!

Jun 21, 2010 - 3 comments

Ok so I had bronchitis in March of 08' and ever since then I can't get rid of my cough. I'm getting really tired of it and nobody seems to know how to get rid of it, for the past few days it has been really horrible, I just don't know what to do any more, I've tried many prescriptions and non seem to help. If anyone knows anything to get rid of this please let me know, but remember that it must be safe to take while pregnant =0). If I don't get better in a few days I guess I will just go to the ER and have them check me out, because I don't want it to be contagious like the whooping cough and give it to my husband, son or my unborn son.

I would say this a definite question for your doctor. I would think that they would try a certain type of antibiotics to try to get rid of whatever is definitely making you cough... There should also be a cough suppressant that should be safe for you and your baby. I think a prescription is going to be your best bet. I am not sure if it is whooping cough or not but I think that a trip to your doctor should definitely be able to get you on your way with fixing the problem =) I hope you feel better soon =)

Hi There!

I have had similar cough and I finally was advised to use an inhaler. It was the only thing that would stop the bronchial spasms. Ask your doctor for one. If you are like me...when i would take a deep breath I would start coughing my head off. The inhaler stopped that. After a few days, i didn't need it anymore. Try it!

Thanks you two!
I will be going to my Dr on July 6th for my next prenatal appointment so I will try to wait until then to see what's going on, but if I can't wait that long then I will go to the ER, I will keep you updated and let you know how it goes, as of today I'm not coughing as much, I just hate it and can't seem to get rid of the darn thing =0(
