Pregnancy and Its Effect on Asthma

I had a rough time w/ my asthma especially during my 2nd pregnancy. Mine definitely got worse during, but then went back to "normal" after. Then changed again w/ other hormone changes. What has been your experience with pregnancy or other hormone changes affecting your asthma?

Asthma and allergies are unpredictable in moms-to-be. Studies show that about one-third of women with asthma find their symptoms improve during pregnancy; one-third say they get worse; and one-third say they stay about the same. Certainly, more and more studies are pointing to hormones as common asthma triggers.
