Are you short of breath in your pregnancy?

This is the first time during any of my pregnancy  I have ever been so short windy. I can clean on room and feel as if I take take in enough oxygen. Is anyone else like this?

  • I was toward the end. I felt very compressed and lost my breath easily.

  • Well, yeah. As baby grows bigger, the uterus pushes up on the other internal organs leaving less space for your lungs to expand.

  • I felt the same way; with my youngest it started at 20 weeks or so. I carried him really high, and felt like I couldn't take a deep breath.

  • It can be very normal. However, it's best to talk with your OB to make sure that it isn't anything out of the ordinary.
