Thanks for the query.
I understand your concern.
According to your description as you are having cough, cold associated with fever there is possibility of respiratory tract infection.
Any infection in pregnancy should be treated carefully.
You may need treatment with antibiotics associated with symptomatic treatment with analytics and antitussives.
So, better to consult your doctor and get examined to find out the possibility of respiratory tract infection then take treatment according to her advice.
