Keep taking what the doc tells you to take and request a pulmonary specialist if it's giving you trouble. It can be a complication during pregnancy...I actually have an asthma doc and a high-risk OB following me this pregnancy, and they've said they'll hospitalize me if it gets bad in my third trimester. First trimester asthma tried to kill me off, and my little one has been exposed to a lot of medication, but all of it is recommended by my pulmonary specialist, who knows what meds are likely to have the least effect on the baby. He actually switched me from advair to symbicort, and from albuterol to xopenex. 24 weeks now and my little girl is doing just fine. They do need us to give them oxygen, so take your meds if you need to.
Albuterol doesn't bother me as much as advair after reading bunches of articles :(
I was diagnosed with new onset asthma at 18weeks and I was told it was fine to take albuterol! Hth
