3 weeks ago I developed a really deep cough. I have it almost daily, and it could sometimes go on for 2 hours on and off. This week I got a very mild cold. NO fever or any other symptoms.
What can I do for the cough - naturally? It wakes me up at night, disturbs conversations I have with people...
How about slippery elm and licorice tea? One company makes a very nice tea called Throat Coat, which is just wonderful with a cough.
Any chance it could be pertussis?

Cough drops are good to calm coughs, the kind with mint and eucalyptus in them. I like that because they're easy and portable. I've even seen a recipe for homemade eucalyptus toffees before. If it really is a deep cough you might want to resort to a little Mucinex to break it up, it's not well researched in pregnancy but a children's dose is better than bronchitis. If it could be pertussis lots of lots of Vitamin C can help neutralize the toxin that causes the cough. A goodly dose of Vit C a few times a day can help your body chase off any other illness you might have anyway, and zinc, d3, b vitamins, etc.
