I am about 6 weeks into my first pregnancy and haven't seen a doctor yet but wanted to ask if it is safe for me to continue to use combivent or albuterol for my asthma. Also, singulair and advair....are these safe for use during pregnancy? I have pretty severe asthma and I plan on discussing this with my doctor once I can get an appointment but any advice now would be appreciated. Thanks!

Yes it is safe to use your inhalers/nebulizer during pregnancy. I also have asthma and have been told that it's fine. I was told not to stop because if I can't breathe then baby can't breathe so don't stop using your asthma medication.
