“Coughing with Birdie has been a crazy painful journey. I am slowly getting healthier every day.”

“I am sending love and prayers to all the mothers who are going or have gone through this. OUCH.”

Bronchitis and its severity in pregnancy
Bronchitis is inflammation or swelling of the lower airways. The swelling could be due to a virus such as during a cold or flu. The mucus production in the airways is increased and the affected person gets coughing in an attempt to dislodge and remove the mucus.
Coughing during the pregnancy is pretty hard on the pregnant lady. Lauren Streicher, MD, a clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Northwestern University states that coughing causes a stretching of the ligaments of the uterus and this leads to pain. There is associated fatigue and dehydration which comes with the coughing. Dr. Lauren further reveals:
“Women with bronchitis are far more likely to be peeing in their pants than a woman who’s pregnant and does not have bronchitis,”
This is incontinence and occurs with chronic cough.
Most of the patients with bronchitis recover with some palliative treatment. It might take a few days to weeks for complete recovery. But people with underlying asthma or allergies usually end up needing some form of treatment and medications.
Bronchitis during pregnancy is an uncomfortable situation and though the baby is not harmed, it is distressing for the mother.
