  • When the baby drops down into your pelvis I would bet that these things go away.
    When I was pregnant I got lightheaded and had a lot of discomfort because the baby was crowding my lungs and stomach and whatever else got rearranged in my body.

  • i had that feeling a lot in the last couple weeks of my pregnancy and it turned out to be preeclampsia with severly high blood pressure. definitely something to bring up to your doc.
