I would definitely get it checked out! If you aren't breathing effectively, neither is your fetus.

Go get yourself some medicine I had bronchitis 8 weeks ago and after 3 antibiotics, 1 breathing treatment, & 2 inhalers we thought I was fine but I have been really sick for a week now and went to the ER today because I was dehydrated and thought my kids had given me the flu, turns out I have pneumonia.

I get bronchitis all the time as well. I've had it and gone without antibiotics. It took me months to get rid of. The next time I got it, I did not want to suffer for months on end for no reason so I got antibiotics immediately. Trust me, it's not worth going without the meds, so get it checked out and get well.

Some antibiotics are safe. I am on the z pack right now for a sinus infection . It's perfectly safe.

for sure go get it checked out.  breathing isn't something you want to mess with.
