I am newly pregnant and considered high-risk (I'm 39 and this is my first pregnancy, and I have asthma), and I am very nervous about using any medications while I'm pregnant, since all the cortico-steroids seem to be Class C. My asthma is well controlled so I want to just take albuterol as a rescue medicine (needed about 1-2x per day) and wait until at least the 2nd trimester before taking anything else. Is there a risk to me or my baby from using more albuterol than in the past? I know an asthma attack is dangerous for both me and my baby but I just can't bring myself to take the medication when it might cause birth defects and I'm already high risk... my doctor says to take the steroids but I just can't do it knowing I might be harming my baby. Any advice would be helpful as I am really stressing out about this!
