Pregnant With Asthma

I am 10 weeks pregnant and take drugs for my asthma. One of the drugs I have to use is a class C and they don't know the effects of the drug on the baby. It is Advair. Doc said the risks of NOT taking it far outweigh the risks of taking it, but I am still worried. Anyone else on this drug or know anything about it?

I have athma also. I know about advair, but not the risks it may have on the baby. Are you using a venolin inhaler too? I looked up living uncured.com and it said that there was no indication that its harmful. I hope I helped a little.

My dr. said that it is way more benficial to take the asthma meds... there are a lot of women out there who have had babies with asthma before, and I haven't found any cases of defects. As long as you take them as prescribed, all should be fine. Best of luck!
