inhailer while pregnant?

I didn't even think to ask my doctor today. I have only needed it once due to the cold weather bothering my very very mild asthma. Any of you other mommas needed an inhailer? I know I'll need it this spring when rag weed season hits or I won't be breathing at all:P i was prescribed a proair. Just looking ahead for future reference I rarely use it.

Thanks guys!!I ended up developing onset adult asthma usually just set off by environmental allergies and cats. Since I don't really use it I didn't even think to ask. They just hooked me up to oxygen when I was in the hospital with my first, why did you need an inhailer there?

Oh yes I have very bad asthma.  I have rescue inhaler and a controlled inhaler,  proair and dulera.  I had to really use my inhaler around 16-25 weeks... I would feel short winded.it's fine. My doctor me it's safe as long as I'm getting oxygen and my baby is getting oxygen there's actual limit.

It fine to use when you need it I need mine like once a month it doesn't harm them at all..., and when you go into labor make sure to bring it to the hospital it will be your best friend and they will even tell you to have it in your to go bag
