Just interested to hear other ladies experiences of asthma symptoms in pregnancy. I've heard how a third of women feel the same, a third feel worse, a third have no difference. Am 9weeks pregnant with my first so just curious, if/when your symptoms started to change?
Hi - I am 7 weeks pregnant with my 2nd. In my first preg my asthma was fine, in fact better than normal apart from when I had a cold. I think in the first few months it was probably the same & as that was nov/dec I suppose thats pretty good going. Hopefully it will be the same for you!
Hiya, I'm 11wks with my first and asthmatic. I've already had two colds straight after one another and the only thing I found worse was I didn't want to take any pills with being in my first trimester so found it hard going. I just used my inhalers and don't think it was any worse but I think some people find it hard going in the later stages when your lungs get a bit squished anyway.
I'm 22 weeks with my 1st one and my asthma is worse than pre-pregnancy. I normally only use my inhaler during autumn and winter and I had to use it during the summer. Not big crisis just whissling (sp?) and out of breath very quickly.
