    Asthma and Pregnancy
    irok1234 posted:
    When I was around 6 1/2 weeks pregnant I became very ill with a virus. I got to a point where I was having 3 asthma attacks a night, when I haven't had one in years. I have now gotten over the virus, but I am still having breathing difficulties and am having to use my inhailer (abuterol) quite frequently. I asked my OB about steriod use while pregnant and he said if it was temperarily, that would be fine, but if it was prolonged that becomes a serious issue and we will have to put me on Singular. Its been a week and a half that I have been over this cold, I am thinking I eed Singular. Did anyone take Singular while pregnat? I am now 10 1/2 weeks along.
