I'm 23 weeks and have had a nasty chest infection for the past week. Am on antibiotics and am finally over the worst of it but am still coughing up phlegm extremely forcefully throughout the day, a few times to the point of vomiting. I can't help but worry that this must be distressing or even physically dangerous for the baby, is there any truth in this or am I being paranoid and irrational?!
I had a horrible chesty cough when i was about 14 weeks and apart from having some spotting (very sensitive cervix) nothing happened to the baby They are really well protected in there! He or she was probably just rattled about lol
I know it feels awful and it's worrying, but if it reassures you, I had horrendous coughing fits through most of my pregnancy last winter. So bad that I couldn't sleep lying down and I was even sick a couple of times. My DD is absolutely fine
