Anyways today the wheezing is just as bad im coughing which is hurting my chest and its heavy and tight konda the chest infection feeling accept I can hardly get any phelm up normally with a chest infection I cough and phelm comes up easy but only in mornings it does this now and its yellow and also doesn't relieve the wheeze I'm now feeling like I'm been strangled I can't get a full breath in my back feels like warmth is inside it I've tried vicks ..hot drinks ..cold drinks. ..fizzy I'm pregnant so I don't want to try any tablets what can I do ?? Does it sound like I'm panicking too or like I have a severe infection or a severe asthma attack ??

    Fill a basin with hot water, grab a towel and throw it over your head and let the steam loosen up the phlem. Do this every couole of hiurs for a bit, then have sime honey in lemon tea is helpful as well. Have a humidifier by your bedside. Some old fashioned chicken soup with lots of veggies. Focus on foods and drinks with vitamin c. Watch your temperature and if goes to 101 call your doctor. Time will heal it up. So unfun when pregnant to be sick. Feel better soon. Be sure sure to take it easy for the next week.

      Sounds like you need to see a dr ASAP, or out of hours centre. If you're gasping and struggling to breathe then I would get medical help straight away.
