Everyday as Scarlett is growing I am more and more out of breath. How about you? Struggling to breathe yet?

Ditto. I have been for a while. Doc said it's because I'm not used to all the extra weight. Plus, the way the baby lays in there, feels like he's sitting on things I need to breathe. (If that makes sense.) Sometimes, just walking down to the mailbox gets me wheezing. (I sound like a 100 year old man. LOL)

Totally there with you. Walking up stairs is such a chore.

The baby also compresses your lungs so you can't get as much air. I have a diagram at home that shows how all of the organs get squished as the baby grows that is both fascinating and disturbing.

Allison is sitting suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuppppppppppperrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr low, so I'm not having as much of an issue as I normally do. But yeah, I've seen a chart with where all the organs get squished too, as well, and it's CRAZY.

Okay...I want to see that chart! I can't breathe very well, but I know it is going to get a lot worse. Just eating causes me to have labored breathing...not fun.

My main issue is when I sit for a while. I guess because he gets shoved even further up into my diaphram...I feel I need to get on the floor and stretch out as long as I can to give myself breathing room. He is lodged nice and high in my ribs, so I know why I am feeling so short of breath. Thankfully, when I am upright, it is not so much of an issue.

Missy, I keep wondering, "Where the heck is this baby girl of a 6'4 man going to grow in such a tiny woman?" LOL, Did you have this problem with your boys? Before you know it you will be walking with an oxygen tank strapped to your back! You'll need to ware a shirt that says "Dont worry, her daddy is 6'4 and Im about to give birth through my mouth", LOL

I get these issues usually around 35+wks. So far, so good, but I know what your talking about!
