This is very interesting to me! My asthma is also seasonal, always starts around the end of March. Coincidentally this is also when my PE starts!! I've had it twice now, both times it showed up in April, different weeks of my pregnancies. I actually had already been wondering if there was a connection. If we try for another baby, I'm going to aim for a due date before the end of March.

Of course, this wouldn't be the cause for everyone, but I'm hoping that avoiding asthma season keeps me PE free.

Very Interesting! Gives me one more good reason to stay on top of my inhalers and make sure I actually use them. My asthma is sporaditic, as long as I take the inhalers I am good though.
Thanks for posting!

Well, it makes sense. I had terrible asthma during my pregnancy with Ben, whom I lost in Oct 2002 at 24 wks due to Pre-e. I was waking up in the night before Pre-e signs showed up and taking a nebulizer treatment because I have seasonal allergies and my asthma crops up when fall starts. I noticed I didn't have to use a neb last time I was pregnant but then I was making sure I stayed healthy and on top of my inhaler meds.
