Horrible cough

So most of you know I watch my 2 year old neice during the week. Well, she has been coughing horribly and I've told my sister to take her to the Dr or I wouldn't watch her anymore because this close to my due date I don't or didn't want to get sick. Well, she kept telling me it was just allergies which I've never heard a cough like this from allergies but they are new to Florida so I thought ok maybe. Well, now I have it. It is HORRIBLE. I take Robitessin (SP) but it's not helping. The cough is so deep and I called my doctor and the receptionist said just take the medicine. I'm 38 weeks today and I go in on Thursday. What else can I do? It's starting to hurt my chest. Can it hurt the baby?

Re: Horrible cough

If the robituusin is not easing things up any, i would make an appointment to see my doctor. They ususally can prescribe somehting when you are as far along as you are.

Re: Horrible cough

I go in tomorrow so I'm going to talk to my Dr. My cough seems to be easing up a little. Coughed all night but I haven't been coughing since I got up really so that's good. I just don't want to be sick while in labor. I have avoided getting sick for nine months and now in the last weeks literally I'm getting sick
