Anyone experience this at all? Like sharp pains? I'm 36 weeks and am feeling them off and on today. Just wondering if its something I should call my doc about tomorrow or if its something that can wait until my appointment next week.

Is it like a stabbing feeling when you take deep breaths, or are bending? Or is it more of an all the time thing? Shortness of breath?

I've had shortness of breath and occasional rapid heart for a while. My doc said its just from being pregnant. Today I have had maybe three times where its been a sharp pain for a couple seconds and I've been sitting down I believe both times.

I would call for sure if you start having an increase of shortness of breath along with the pain. The reasoning for my questions, were that I too was having pain like that.  I know that it sounds totally wacky but mine ended up being acid reflex, seemed odd to me because I wasn't experiencing a burning feeling.  It was sharp like you said and in the middle of my chest.  I hope that you start feeling better!

I know it's not heartburn but I didn't think of the acid reflux. I did have some poo yesterday and this morning. If it ets worse I'll call but if not I'll just mention it to my doc. Someone said it could be pulmonary something which sounds scary enough.

Pulmonary embolism? That is scary.  If you are worried I would call.  That's what they are there for. :)

Any time you experience something like that, you should call your doctor just to be safe.

Not sure. I would call though. When it comes to pains in the chest I just wouldn't risk anything.

I had shortness off breath and I could feel my heart pumping .  After some time they figured out my iron was really low and the baby was taking my oxygen level at times.
