I have had a cough for nearly 2 weeks now, it has not improved at all and feels like i will coughing for the rest of my life. I went to the dr and he listened to my chest, said it was clear and i just had a virus that should pass in a week or so - that was 5 days ago. My DD's have this cough too but i seem to be hit the hardest (i am pregnant if that makes any difference). I am now having horrible thoughts that it must be whooping cough because i have never coughed so much in my life, i rarely get coughs and if i do they are very shortlived/minor. I am freaking out - is it possible to cough so long with just a regular cold virus??
