  • its probably cause the baby is pushing up on your stomach, and when you eat it gets ex[pands and since your baby is in there the only way it can go is up. so it can make it hard to breath. i had the problem when i get into the midle of my 2nd trimester. if you have previous breathing problems though like asthma i would call your doctor.

  • Dayna-Marie I totally agree with you. lol
    Yeah, I used to be able to eat an entire plateful of food but now I can only eat half a plate, at the most.

    Gahhh... my stomach just churned cuz I'm thinking of food.
