In brief: Probably all.
Asthma is worse in 1 of 3 women when pregnant.
1/3 are unaffected while 1/3 actually improve. Asthma meds are either class b or c. The difference - while class c drugs may cause problems in pregnant laboratory animals no problems have been reported in humans. Uncontrolled asthma is a greater risk to your pregnancy than any class c drug. Pulmicort, singulair (montelukast) & Atrovent HFA are class b asthma drugs.

In brief: Category B
If you have asthma and are pregnant, there are excellent options that are listed as category b during pregnancy--singulair and pulmicort are possibilities.
You should talk to your physician about which medications you're on.
