It is always a good idea to ask your physician about taking any medication during pregnancy. That being said, ocasional use of albuterol sulfate should have no adverse impact on the fetus. Respiratory arrest, which is a possibility in an acute asthmatic attack (if the inhaler isn't used), most certainly will. The inhaler is basicly keeping your airways open. The systemic dose is very small.  As long as the use is in accordance with your physician's directions there should be no need to worry. I would have to defer to the experience of women as to whether or not asthma gets worse during pregnancy.

Hello MishMarie,
First of all congratulations on your good news. I have asthma too since
my early twenties. As for your questions, the best person to ask is your
family doctor. I'm pretty sure you can take your asthma medication while
you're pregnant, but it's important to ask your doctor. As to whether your
asthma symptoms will get worse now that you're pregnant, again, make
sure to ask your doctor. Your own family doctor can advise you best.

The positive side of asthma is that those who have it have a statistically less chance of developing a malignancy.
