  • Yes it's totally normal, your growing uterus is squishing on your lungs and diaphram

  • Honestly it doesn't have to do with weight either. Alot of pregnant women have changes in breathing, especially if you have asthma.

  • When I was preg with my daughter I ended up needing an inhaler because my asthma acted up (which hadn't done so since I was a kid!)
