    hello,first of all,Congrats on your pregnancy. I need to ask u further questions though I wouldnt think it's TB based on the short duration of the cough which is 2days.are u losing weight?is there anyone coughing for long in your environment.the blood in the saliva is it much or just a tinge?I want to believe the blood would be from the upper respiratory tract and not something sinister.I would advice u complain at your next antenatal clinic.wishing u a safe delivery when it's time.
