Anyone else have this or had earlier in the pregnancy? I think I am a little behind most of you guys as I am due almost in March.. What the heck! It is my only symptom I have had (other than being dead tired a few weeks and always hungry!) it drives me nuts to the point I am so short of breath I cant even hold my end of the conversation sometimes (and this is not good for me at work)..Did it go away or has is subsided at all? Tums help a little, almost like its indigestion and letting out a burp helps me be able to breath again but I don't want to over do it with them..Any suggestions? Aghh..
haha i just posted a similar thread...all i do is yawn and breathe hard, because it feels like by belly is too full that i just cant breathe right...also you are so right..when im talking to someone then i sometimes have to take a long breath before finishing...like i have been running long or something...
Ha, i just saw that, guess were on the same wavelength! If i knew how to delete this i would just write on yours..it is insane! Its like i can hardly walk up stairs without being winded! Which is just awful because I walk all day at work.. i have the same thing where i feel like i will pass out..I sure do hope it goes away..I don't get why this happens especially because I exercise regularly, I bike 5 miles a day and now modified weight training ..I see you are not so far ahead of me, so heres to hoping for us!
im in this boat too, I hate it. Especially after I eat a meal, then seriously do not talk to me for an hr because.........i......................cant....... .....................answer.....................ug h
I get this all the time and pregnancy exacerbates it.
If it feels like burping helps, try Gas-X - it's basically inert so really safe to take.
For the poster who feels worse after a meal, that could be due to low blood pressure if you're prone to that; digestion diverts blood flow temporarily, and blood pressure tends to drop a bit in pregnancy due to the extra blood volume.
