The last two days have been awful as I am constantly feeling short of breath. I got that way with DD2 but I am pretty sure I was further along and my dr. said it was because of her position. I just don't see how it could be the same thing so early on with the baby being so little. Anyone else having this problem?

yes I've felt like that a few times. I contribute it to change of weather and my body producing a bunch extra blood/fluid so it's not getting enough oxygen. If you are concerned you should tell your dr just to be sure

I agree, it's probably not a concern, but definitely something you should just mention to your dr. The second tri is when your body really picks up the blood volume production, so it could very well be related to that, as well as many other factors. Hope it lets up a bit for you, though, before baby is compressing them later and you get a little breathing break.

If I have to run up or down the stairs to grab the phone or something, It takes me forever to catch my breath back. Its happening SOOO much earlier! I hate it.

I wouldn't say i have shortness of breath but when i'm chasing after my son (which i do alot ) or going up and down stairs, etc. i definitely get out of breath easier.

I have definitely been feeling short of breath. I read in one of my baby books that it is normal, even this early.
