increasing asthma while pregnant?

So, ive had asthma since i was around 9 years old and im noticing the more pregnant i get the worse my symptoms are becoming. whats the deal with that? sometimes i feel like i just ran up 10 flights of stairs while doing nothing. its very annoying to say the least and im worried about using my inhaler too much i dont wanna make the baby bounce around in there like a mexican jumping bean from the steroids. i guess i just need to talk to my doc at my next appt about getting a different inhaler because im using my fast acting one too often. idk, does anyone know how much inhalers affect the baby? did anyone else get increasing asthma while pregnant?

I was born with asthma.
I take Albuterol in my inhailer.
I don't use it THAT often, but I have been having a very hard time with my breathing.
I'm running outta room.
Normal activities that usually don't wear me out, wear me out now.
I'm also a smoker.
So that's my prob.

I dunno about as early as you are though.
I'd talk to the doc.
My doc told me use my inhailer like I normally do.

Increased asthma is very common and real in pregnancy. Your blood volume has increased 50% and your sinuses are all messed up from pregnancy hormones. So talk to your doctor about it and about your concerns so he can reassure you and get you something to help with your symptoms.
