Generally many asthmatics feel better during pregnancy but a proportion get worse.  As your asthma control is good during pregnancy you should be fine managing with labour and delivery.  The second question is whether your baby will get asthma.  Asthma tends to have a genetic component but most children from parents who are asthmatic often don’t get asthma.  I don’t think you really need to worry about this.
