Patient :I'm 18 weeks pregnant and I've had a pretty nasty cold for the past 3-4 weeks, getting worse in the past 7 days. Of course, I can't take any OTC meds for it, so I've just been trying to rest. Starting yesterday, I think it's moved into my chest. I'm unable to clear any mucus out because that type of pressure induces vomiting with me, but what little I was able to get up this morning was brown and had blood in it. No fever, yet. Should I go to the doctor or just wait it out some more?
