  • I have this same problem I can hardly ever breath IT SUCKS. They Said the babys moved head down and her but is up in my ribs and putting pressure on my lungs. i know it sounds hard but try not to think to much about it thinking aboutit makes it worst. but next time you go to the doc let him know and he'll be able to explain further.
