I'm 14 weeks pregnant and the minute, great news cos i love children so much. this will be my second baby and all semms well. i'm not asthma sufferer myself but i'm terrified of bringing a new life into the world in case he or she has asthma as i have recently lost my gorgeous 2 year old son to a severe asthma attack. i'm so scared as there seems there's so much of it about and hope i can be strong enough to deal with any breathing difficulties it may have.
My son wasn't overly poorly but every couple of weeks it was down to the doctors as he' been triggered by a cold. never really taken seriously by the doctors or looked into further. i've come on here to have a nose and i'm so touched by the support you all give each other and so wish i knew about this website months ago. but what happened to my son was a tragedy but is in no way the norm.
But please remember parents know their children best and so if your worried then there's something wrong and get it looked into. we need to breathe to stay alive so any breathing complaints should be investigated, i know that some medical staff don't tke asthma seriously but it obviously can be very serious.
