Pregnancy is an thrilling time in a woman's life. Changes in your body may be matched by changes in your emotions. Asthma is a heterogeneous lung disease. Asthma is one of the most common clinical complications in the US and other developed countries. Pregnant women are breathing for two.

When asthma is controlled, women having asthma have no more problems during pregnancy and giving birth than women who don't have asthma. However, uncontrolled asthma during pregnancy can lead to serious maternal and fetal complexities.

Nearly one third of women with asthma experience improvement while they are pregnant, about one third get worse, and the other third stay about the same. The moderate your asthma was before pregnancy, and the better it is controlled during pregnancy.

The habitualness of asthma is the same in all women of childbearing age. If a mother has unconstrained asthma, there is a higher risk for premature birth, low birth weight and maternal blood pressure changes (i.e. pre-eclampsia). Symptoms of complicated asthma in Pregnancy are fever, hypotension and tachycardia (think tension pneumothorax), silent chest in someone in distress is more perturbing and jugular venous distension from increased intrathoracic pressure.

If asthma control deteriorates during pregnancy, the symptoms tend to be at their ace during weeks 24-36. Most women experience the similar stage of asthmatic symptoms in all their pregnancies. It is very less chance to have an asthma attack during delivery (10%). In most cases, manifestations return to "normal" within 3 months after delivery. Asthma is very rarely a complication during labour. If an attack occurs, usual medication should be used.

Better control of asthma during pregnancy reduces the risk of complications. The perfect method to treat asthma is to avoid having an attack in the first place. Avoid exposure to your asthma triggers.

Don't smoke. A pregnant woman who smokes runs a highly increased risk of having a severe asthma episode at some time in the pregnancy. Stay away from people who have a cold, the flu, or other infection. Long-term control medicines are consumed daily to control asthma and prevent asthma symptoms, even when asthma is stable. Theophylline is a long-term control medicine, slackens the smooth muscles around the airways.

Using a spacer with inhaled steroids (metered-dose inhaler) and gargling your mouth after inhaling the medicine minimises the risk of thrush. Mucolytic agents maximises bronchospasm, and antihistamines are not useful in the treatment of asthma.
