Hi everyone. I have been struggling to breathe for the last two weeks or so! Thought I had chest infection and they gave me antibiotics. It didn't really do the job, but my asthma seemed to get worse, meanwhile. Went back to doctors yesterday as could no longer cope and she has prescribed me steroids, Prednioslone, which I am taking as can't cope without them. Only a 5 day course and Asthma UK says they are OK in pregnancy, but still worrying myself silly as heard it can cause early labour/low birth weight. Anyone been on them short term and been fine/all turned out well? I am 18 weeks today... Can't believe that!
