  • What would they do at the ER? If you went to the ER you could be exposed to swine flu and other illnesses.

    Stay calm. Call the doctor. If the doctor thinks you aren't getting enough oxygen then you may be able to go straight to the OB floor and have the baby monitored and your oxygen checked and if everything is ok you can go right home. I developed asthma while pregnant, it sometimes happens.

  • Get in the car and go to a pay phone where it won't be long distance.

    Go somewhere where you can use someone else's phone.

    If you don't have a car call someone to take you to a phone.

    You souldn't let yourself be in the situation that you can't call your doctor. I understand you didn't know. Now you do.
