Sounds like you may have pulled a muscle coughing. The baby is fine. There's not really much you can do about it until it heals which may take some time since you're still coughing. You can try Tylenol for the pain.

It sounds like you should DEFINITELY talk to your doctor about this. Don't worry too much but this sounds serious. When I was pregnant with my first child, I would occassionally have pain when I would cough or sneeze. If you dont want to make an appointment right now you should call a nurse line and ask for their advice. National nurse line 888-372-0758, but if the pain is becoming worse and consistant, go to the hospital. You are 35 weeks so the baby can actually come anytime now. Be careful and pay attention to any pain.
