Horrible Cough that doesn't go away: Pregnant

Good Morning,
I was hoping I could get feedback on what remedy would be appropriate for my situation.
I am currently 15 weeks pregnant, and had a mild sore throat last monday, which was then followed by congestion and a cough. This cough has intensified since Saturday, to the point in which I keep having a dry cough during the day, and at night, have bouts of continuous coughing (to the point it sounds like barking), until I sit up, throw-up, and/or drink something cold.

A lot of the over the counter meds, I cannot take because I am pregnant, and I'm in need of a restful night in which I do not wake up with this coughing.

Please help.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
You need to first help your body to stand cold external (winter)

The mild and effective one is to take:

Phytollacca 6c, 2 pills and Gelsemium 6c, 2 pills, together and taken twice a day. This will help relieve congestion and get rid of cold (makes the body stand winter)

If soreness continues, please write after a day

For cough, in addition to the above, I would recommend to take DROSERA 6c, 1 dose and 2 hours later, one dose of NUX VOM 30c (just one dose of each - no repeat)

This should help your cough significantly.

If you dont get Drosera 6c from your local store, then try BRYONIA 30c, twice daily

Please see my Profile for general instructions

Thank you very much. I will try to pick up these remedies tonight and will follow up.
Thankfully, I don't deal a lot with cold (external) since I live in a very warm climate ^.^
