help with coughing

Guys, I'm 29 weeks tomorrow and I seriously feel like I got hit by a train! I was thinking it was just allergies, but now I'm running a low grade fever. My throat is killing me, my head hurts, and I can't stop coughing (sometimes producing mucus). I have been taking Tylenol cold but it just masks it for 4 hours or so. What else can I do to get better? I have two other children to take care of and my husband is having surgery in two days!

I started getting a sore throat and constantly coughing last week. Went to my Dr and she gave me an antibiotic cuz apparently i have a throat infection. And yes its safe to take while pregnant (I'm 29 weeks)

My OB told me it was okay to take robatussin and Buckleys... Any type of cough syrup as long as there is no DM in it.
