Reflux: As you get more pregnant, you may find that you will get reflux from your stomach. This can cause irritation to the voice box, causing the cough. See your physician for a diagnosis and treatment.

Maybe: As the size of your uterus gets bigger some people have more problems digseting the food related to hormones as well as an elarging uterus. If this persists talk with you OB to amke sure there is not another cause.
