I'm 31 weeks and I have a cold right now. Your immune system is weaker while pregnant. But I think if it makes you feel better you should definitely talk to your doctor. They might have some suggestions to help you kick it.

cold symptoms like sore throat don't last that long. Coughing and congestion do. Wouldn't hurt to rule out other stuff.

Im working on my second week of the same symptoms.  Because of our weakened immune system it can last from 2-3 weeks total. Halls cough drops are considered safe, Mucinex for the stuffiness and cough, tylenol for the sore throat-- use childrens liquid or dissolvable tablets as that coats the throat and it is only Acetaminophen instead of the adult liquid meds. Good luck and feel better!

Tylenol cold, actifed, benadryl, chlortrimenton, chloraseptic spray, cough drops and Ayr nasal solution are all on the list of safe meds for colds from my doctor
