HAs anyone here

had shortness of breath at 5 months of pregnancy? What can you do about it? has it ever been so bad that you have to sleep practically sitting up so that you can breath?

  • Yup. Your uterus is growing up into your diaphram (the big muscle that makes you breathe). It gets tough, but hang in there. Working out can make it a bit easier to breathe but its hard at first- heck stairs are hard sometimes. Just keep up with it. try to stay active.
