  • Don't know if this answers your question but you can request Oxygen while you push!

  • 31 weeks and i have false contrations...the only way i even know there happening is because I have short ness of breath and i fell like my heart is beating in my throoat..(kind of a slight strangling effect) I talked to my doc n he says its noramal because when you contract and the uterus squeeaes it pushes more blood flow up to your lungs therefore making your heart pump more blood ...

  • ...and making you feel short of breath. Just make sure to breath through those times when you feel that way so that the baby gets enough oxygen all the time and you will be fine
