  • yeah there's a baby in you, sounds like he's sitting high in there on your lungs, prop up with pillows dear you're almost there

  • its not a complication. its normal. there is at least 5 lbs sitting on your internal organs. you are almost done. relax and sleep when u can, however you can.

  • i am only 30 weeks along and have started to feel that it is hard to breath plus i have nasal conjestion as well. and it always seems to be noticably worse when i lay down. very annoying! guess we can't really do anything but deal with it and know that it will be back to normal once we deliver... good luck! :)

  • yeah I definitely had that. Have you tried one of those maternity body pillows? That was the only thing that would help me sleep when I was pregnant with my daughter adn I plan on using it again this time. Theyre a bit expensive but so worth it!
