You need to get to the doctor and get a new Rx for an inhaler. I also have asthma and have been to the ER a couple of times for bronchitis. If you can't breathe the baby has a hard time breathing so you really need to have your inhaler.

Talk to your doctor about the yeast infections. Maybe he/she can give you options. And UTI's and yeast infections can be very common in pregnancy.

You need to talk to your doctor and if you don't have one you need to get one ASAP! If you don't have insurance apply for Medicaid.

Of course women of all sizes can get pregnant - unless there is an underlying issue preventing her from doing so.

Pregnant women can get colds, just like anyone else. The only problem is there really isn't anything we can take to ease symptoms (except for plain old Tylenol).

With all due respect, you seem very uneducated about pregnancy. This is a great site to learn about the ins and outs - I would suggest taking a tour of the pregnancy related articles available on this site and perhaps speaking with a couple female family members who have been through pregnancy.

Good luck!

You also need to get a new high risk pregnancy doctor. Overweight people can and do get pregnant. I knew a woman who was overweight and got pregnant. You couldn't really tell she was pregnant unless you knew her.

I had bronchitis twice in my first trimester and with having asthma it's worse for me.

Also pregnancy lowers your immune system which causes you to get sick more often so you need to be sure to eat a healthy and balanced diet. And being over weight you are at a higher risk of gestational diabetes so eating healthy is very important. I have gestational diabetes and it's not fun.

You can't take cold medicine before your 12th week of pregnancy and after that you can take regular robbitussin, but you still have to be careful. Look online for approved medications for pregnant women.

The reason why you can't take certain medicine is because it can affect the development of your baby. There are different classes of medicine (A, B, C). I believe class B is what you can take while pregnant and class C is unknown meaning there hasn't been enough studies to indicate if it is really harmful to pregnant women.

You need to get a new high risk doctor that knows more. Obese women can get pregnant and get pregnant all the time. Your doctor is very bias and ignorant.
