My 5 month old is gasping for air...

she just started making these loud gasps for air a couple of days ago. It's weird because when shes asleep she sounds fine. It worries me because its so constant. Shes not sick although she just got over a cold about a week ago. She has a doctors appointment tomorrow but I want to know if any other mothers can relate or have any ideas???
