Here are simple remedies to loosen those throat secretions:

  • Drink a mixture of ginger, carnation, and cinnamon.
    To do this, mix the three ingredients with hot water. Stir and strain, then add one tablespoon of honey.

      Your problem may be associated due to two reasons. It may be due to upper respiratory tract infection or it can also be due to reflux acid which is very common in late pregnancy. It is due to growing size of uterus and its pressure on the upper abdomen and stomach. For upper respiratory tract infection you may have to take prescribed medication from your doctor. However, you can reduce the pressure on upper abdomen and reflux. Keep your back and head slightly raised when you sleep. This will prevent reflux. Eat less oily and fried food. Gargle with salt water two times in a day.
