Hi faced a similar problem but tried 2-4 things after which I gt a relief in 2 weeks..
1. continued the ginger turmeric n honey mixture
2. Steam to de congest cough
3. Medicines prescribed by doctor.
in this situation it's better to follow the medicines prescribed by doctor

For cough take garlic honey and turmeric as a paste. Drink warm water at regular intervals and also do warm water gargle. Discuss the medications with your doctor and see if you can a symptomatic relief option which is safe for Pregnancy and take that at bed time which will allow you to sleep well. Good rest helps in faster recovery.
