  • I had the same problem. I was told to take it easy and rest, that it was just how the baby was positioned that was doing it, and it would pass. Relax, you will be ok. The end always sucks, if it didn't you would never have the motivation to go through birthing the baby. lol.

  • If you are having trouble breathing and feeling light headed, you should call your doctor. It may be nothing, but you shouldn't take any chances. If you rest and it doesn't go away call your doc.

  • even if the baby dropped, its still in there, and pushing up on ur lungs. even just the pregnancy hormone can make u short of breath. my baby dropped and i still cant breathe half the time and he kicksme in the ribs

  • No matter where baby is in there, s/he's still putting pressure on your diaphragm, and that's lower than the lungs!
