Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Since you have asthma you can take the medication as advised by your Pulmonologist after you have informed that you are pregnant. Asthma may get worse by 24-32 weeks of pregnancy as well. You will need to understand that all trigger of asthma must be removed from your surroundings. Don't go near dust, gardens, pollution or eat any food that can precipitate asthma. Also you can continue using inhaled beta 2 agonist and inhaled steroid under the discretion of your Doctor only. You can do steam inhalation to relieve your cough as of now. Consult your Doctor and get advise as to what medications you can use and their effect on your baby as well. Have a safe and wonderful pregnancy.

welcome to healthcaremagic
with 2 months pregnancy you must consult gynecologist and get a check up
if you are having asthma consult physician and always tell that you are pregnant 2 months so that doctor will prescribe safe medicines
saline gurgles and steam inhalations will help besides medicines
