In brief: See your doc for Rx

Since you are not able to stop coughing, you shoul see your doc even if you are not pregnant.
Reactive airway disease/asthma/pneumonia/bronchitis/pertussis are possible causes and should be evaluated and treated. Don't wait too long before complications occur. So, consult your doc asap...Congrats and good luck.
