  • awww I feel your pain! You will need to use some extra pillows and sleep almost sitting down.
    OR you can talk to your doctor and he can give you an abuterol (sp?) pump to help you.

  • ?how would an albuterol pump for asthma help a pregnant woman who doesn't (if she doesn't) have asthma> not a criticism just a curious question. Maybe it's a new treatment that more preggers would appreciate knowing about!

  • I am almost 26 wks, and breathing is hard for me. If I'm not reclining, or laying down, its a chore! Everyone keeps telling me it is because my lungs are crunched, but man it is uncomfortable!!
