anyone else feel like it is hard to breathe sometimes?

im 35 weeks and i sometimes have to take a huge deep breathe to feel like i got air even coming in . last night i actually woke up breathing a little heavy . my baby has dropped already so i dotn think it is her but i am not sure . could it be the allergins in the air? vegas has had some messed up weather the past couple weeks .
just wondering if anyone maybe knew. i have an appointment this week and i will be asking my dr just wanted to see if anyone was like me .
thank you

  • When you are pregnant, your lung capacity is actually decreased because your abdomen is taking up your lung's normal space. It's normal. Just take it easy and relax.

  • even though your baby has dropped she has moved your lungs so it was probably the combination of how you were laying and how she was laying that made it hard to breath.
