  • I had slightly worse asthma during my pregnancy. It was partially due to the weight gain as well but I found myself getting out of breath climbing stairs or walking far or fast. When I got a cold my asthma made it worse along with the lack of medicines I was able to take. It was not anything severe just slight things I noticed.

  • Mine did, I had to go to the hospital when I got sick. They said I developed "walking pneumonia". I have never had to go to the hospital for my asthma ever besides when I was prego.

  • I think mine was about the same. I did develop my first case of eczema while pregnant the first time and I've had it ever since. (eczema and asthma are said to be linked)
