In brief: Probably little
If you get adequate treatment for your self the baby will likely be fine.
Medicines used to treat both the infection and the asthma do not typically bother the baby, and if your symptoms are treated the baby should be ok.

In brief: Not much, probably
The biggest risk to your child would be if you were not adequately treated, and were becoming worse.
Make sure your doctor is apprised of your situation.

Asthma needs to be controlled during pregnancy, or it can have an affect on the baby.
