Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

During pregnancy, asthma related symptoms can be very difficult to control (wheezing and shortness of breath). This is especially concerning in the setting of a recent upper respiratory infection. You need to contact your OB/GYN immediately or go directly to an ER to be evaluated.

I hope that this helps. If you have more questions, please click on "ASK ME A QUESTION" link above to directly ask me a question!
