  • i am only 30 weeks and i get shortness of breath a lot. when the baby grows upward it pushes all ur organs upward including lungs... what exactly is a heart palpatation? i get to where sometimes my heart is beating so hard i feel it in my own chest, and it worries me a little is that the same? i try not to make any sudden moves its hard just to get up lol
