Coughing & pregnancy

Post by Smiler »

Hi all,

I'm 2 days over due into my pregnancy, and as you can probably imagine, am getting increasingly impatient!
The problem I have is, over the weekend I managed to catch the most irritating of sore throats accompanied with the most irritating of coughs! The chemist has given me some mixture to take which is safe during pregnancy, but I am a little concerned that the constant coughing and heaving is dangerous to my unborn baby.
I have the midwife tomorrow and will obviously go over this with her, but I'm just looking for a little reassurance in the mean time. I know babies are safe in there and can take a lot of jip, but I'm a natural worrier!

Thanks for reading.

That's what I'm hoping! Just a bit worried thats all, as I'm obviously using my tummy muscles when coughing.

Still no sign... I've tried everything to get labour started to no avail. Pineapple, curry...you name it...but nothing is working!

I'm having a boy. I think he is quite like his father - takes his time with everything lol :) Definitely doesn't get that laid back streak off me if so!

Sex lmao.

Always brings the baby along quicker lol.

My mate was a week overdue, so i told her and her boyfriend to have sex. They didnt even get that far and her waters broke. Lol.

She now has a bouncing baby girl.

Hop your little one has already made an appearence =]
You know you're a mum when the thought of food shopping alone becomes exciting.

When you and your significant other are having an argument, just take all of your clothes off during the spat and stand there. Something is bound to happen!! =]
