I'm 23 weeks pregnant and every once in a while, I get this horrible pressure in my chest. It's like someone is standing on my chest. When I get this pressure, it's constant. It gets so painful that I actually cry because it hurts so bad.

I'm going to bring it up at my next appointment on the 29th, but I was just wondering if this is "normal". This is my third pregnancy and I didn't have this happen with my first two.

It could be an esophageal spasm.  I had those while pregnant and boy do they hurt.

I would get it checked out though.

Well, that is good news.  =)

Quoting MeghanPerez:

No, no stress or anxiety. Things have been relatively calm and easy. Lol

Quoting specialwingz:

Are you under any particular stress right now?  I mean other than being pregnant, lol.  It could be anxiety, too.
