Hard to Breathe already?

Ugh.. so I'm just over 26 weeks, and for the past couple of days I have been having a hell of a time breathing unless I am laying down on my side.. is it normal for this to happen already? I don't remember having the hard to breathe issue with my first until later on.

  • I'm 29 weeks and I've been having the same problem since 25 weeks or so. My Iron is fine, I'm not overweight I'm having a perfectly healthy pregnancy. My baby is big and he's just pressing in my lungs. So you could mention it to your dr but I'm sure you're fine.

  • the doc may want to check her blood just in case though, i have a history of being anemic, i'm not overweight either & my baby is big but i'm carrying him low so he's not on my lungs
