6 weeks and phlegmy cough

I know this doesn't sound very nice but just found out I was pregnant- 6 weeks, 5 days. I'm a type one diabetic and have been suffering with a general cold and cough since Monday, to the point of coughing up lots of phlegm and being sick. Has anyone else had this and do you know anything to help improve it?

Head over a bowl of hot water should ease the phlegm but not the cough. I think most cough medicines are safe to take in pregnancy as are sweets like fishermans friend. I'm unsure though as your diabetic if you'd be ok on these as they're mainly all sugar based.
Sorry not much help.
