.. shortness of breath where you feel like you just cannot breathe?? I have had it SO much this pregnancy! It has been especially bad today. I am 23 weeks, and I feel like he is more "inside" of me than my DD was. She was lower, and I never really had this problem, but this little boy is more up and inside of me. It's weird. I can't sleep, rest, or catch my breath. Please HELP with any advice. Thanks!!

Yes. I've actually scared my husband a few times by gasping for breath. I've read that it's normal, but it is scary and i hate it. Something to do with progesterone making us breathe more deeply and feel like we're not breathing deeply enough.

Hope that helps!

Sometimes I wonder if it is my anxiety, but it seems to get worse when I feel him stretch so maybe it's a combination of the two. I just need some sort of remedy or relief. I am at the point to where I don't know what to do!!

I have had the same problem.  Until lately I have felt like he's living in my rib cage and I couldn't BREATHE!  I don't know if he's dropped or what, but now it's just his feet that are in my ribs.  Today he kicked me so hard up there that I cried.  He's getting stronger and I'm becoming more of a baby.  LOL!
