Can severe coughing cause pregnancy problems?

I went to the ER cause I couldn't stop coughing. They said I had Sinus infection though my sinuses are fine no green gunk. Well antibiotics aren't working at all i'm still sick as can be. I can't stop coughing and I'm getting green mucus coming from my lungs. Yesterday I coughed so bad that I coughed up blood. Not much, but first timer here. I'm not sure what effect my coughing almost 24/7 will have on my child. I'm around 28 weeks and just very sick!! Had to goto eye doctor cause now my eyes are infected. I'm taking K-Flex and Tylenol sore throat with robitussin. And waiting on my eye antibiotics and steroids to come in. I'm in so much pain from coughing. I believe it's bronchitis, not a sinus infection. I just wish this would get better. Any ideas on the coughing/pregnancy?

Re: Can severe coughing cause pregnancy problems?

Hello Kirii! I too just got over a TERRIBLE case of Bronchitis. I was gagging so hard I thought my water would break! So, I understand where you are coming from.
What med did they put you on? Depending on which one, it should knock out the Bronchitis too.
Unfortunately, what you're doing--taking the Tylenol and Robitussin is about all you can do when you're preggo. Get around some steam--lean over a pot of boiling water, breath in a cup of tea/coffee steam, (Lemon Zinger was my fave) Take a nice shower. Get a Vaporizor, use Vics Vapor rub. REST! AND DON'T 4GET YOUR FLUIDS! It took mine a week to go away--I am still coughing; but not NEARLY as bad.
I hope you feel better....and if this isn't getting any better; I would see your regular doc and tell him/her to MAKE IT STOP--GIVE ME DRUGS THAT WORK!!! LOL

Re: Can severe coughing cause pregnancy problems?

I had this a few months ago, I had to go to the hospital and get fluids because they said I had the flu. Anyway, The only thing coughing did to me was cause a little bleeding. I was only about 12 wks along though. They also told me that being as sick as I was, I could have been on my death bed with it, and the baby would be fine. So I think your baby is just fine. good luck getting rid of it.
