  • There are asthma meds you can use while pregnant. You want to make sure your blood gets enough oxygen for the babies.

  • I have had to use my inhaler all threw my pregnancy. I found out I had asthma when I was pregnant with my first (I'm now pregnant with my second). I have been told that all my meds are safe and I use Symbicort twice a day and then the Proventil when needed. If you are using something else just check with your dr and make sure its ok but I believe you should be fine.
