Albuterol Inhaler?

Why is it that Pregnant women can't use them? I took a puff of my Inhaler this morning for chest pain then was told it was bad for pregnant women... I don't think one puff is going to hurt me since it's the first time i've used it since i've been pregnant but what exactly is bad about it?

  • If you have asthma, you should use it. I was never told to not. Its a class C drug, but there not being enough oxygen is worse for your baby.
