Breathing?

Im 20 weeks pregnant and so far I have only gained 8lbs according to my last doctors visit. I have started to notice that sometimes breathing is, not difficult, but Im not as comfortable as I used to be. if Im slouching or sometimes when Im just sitting i am breathing a little heavier. Is this normal?

  • Yep...baby is taking up more room and limiting your lung expansion...get ready it only gets better (worse) from here on out.

  • Just wait, by the time I was about 8 months I could barely walk and talk at the same time. Once they "dropped" I could breathe better but it was still not easy.
