So my BH contraction have often had me feeling short of breath, like my lungs are constricted and I can't get enough oxygen and have to take a big deep breath. So I googled "Braxton Hicks take my breath away" and tons of hits came up, many women on various past and present message board site posts asking the same thing! Apparently this is common! Anyone else getting this?
Yup. It almost feels like it's squeezing my lungs too. I have to stop and try and breath deep until it stops. Makes the whole bh thing looks way more dramatic than it is! lol! But it beets the real contractions, sledge hammer effect. I'll take bh over that anyday!
