    Hey i was wondering if you notice losing your breath sooner then the average person when you have asthma?

    19 weeks and starting to get it off and on a little.

    Yup, i have fairly severe asthma, which is normally well controlled, but it gets alot more noticable when i'm pregnant. My doctor tries to keep my medication to a minimum during pregnancy, but i've had to have an increased dosage this time aswell. Its unfortunate, apparently it can go either way, some people their asthma really improves whilst pregnant, some it gets worse. Typical! :rolleyes:

    Mine has gone through phases - in 1st tri, I had 2 weeks where I really struggled keeping things in line. In 2nd tri, I've been lucky so far and everything is staying under controlled.

    I am too. But I think it's a pregnancy thing. I know of a few pregnant women who suffer from this.
