Chest Pain?!

I am about 4 weeks pregnant and I'm having really bad chest pains. I feel like I can't breath but I'm breathing. I'm trying to open up my lungs by sitting up and laying flat and yawning but it still hurts. Could this harm my baby? Has anyone else had this issue?

  • is it just shortness of breath or actual pain in ur chest? shortness of breath is normal, even in early pregnancy, but chest pains means something else

  • It's more shortness of breath, it's an uncomfortable feeling in the center of my chest.

  • I went to the ER thank you all so much. I suffered from asthma a while ago and it was coming back. It's been so long so I didn't have an inhaler so that's what was causing the pain. I got treate dand sent home. Thank you all!
