Id suggest for you not to take any medication without prescription as you are pregnant. It is best to seek medical advise from a professional. Though generally for mild illnesses its okay, still better not to take the risk.

I always ask if the medication is safe for pregnancy/breastfeeding. if the cough is not too bad I will avoid medication. you may wanna boil a pear and drink the liquid,helps in cough, warm honey lemon is good too.

If you've seen a doctor and informed him/her that you are pregnant, and checked that the medication is suitable for pregnant mothers then it's fine :)
