Does acute bronchitis during pregnantnancy pose any risk to the baby? I'm almost 19 weeks. Debating calling the doctor. I hate taking medicine while pregnant

In brief: Shortness of Breath

I wouldn't expect acute bronchitis to affect you or your pregnancy substantially however if you're acutely short of breath and having trouble breathing or any other signs of flu or whole body disease (fever, dizziness), i would be seen immediately.
