There could be several reasons why you are coughing in the morning.  Common causes would include chronic hay fever with a post-nasal drip and sometimes acid coming up the food pipe (GORD), GORD is much more common during pregnancy.  Discuss with your doctor and perhaps try an antacid or an antihistamine, depending on their assessment.  There could be a bunch of other causes but I've pointed out 2 likely common ones.
