Anyone else having shortness of breath?

I've talked to the Ob about it several times and see Pulmonary for it on Friday to see if my asthma I had when I was a kid came back. Apparently pregnancy can do that- yay? Lol

I eat and then can't breathe. I think she's up high and when I put anything in my stomach it just pushes her up higher into my lungs. I honestly think that's the reason I've lost so much weight in 2 weeks (4lbs!), I'm not eating nearly the normal serving size anymore.

Anyone else having this? It's awful, I feel like I'm always trying to catch my breath

*Thank you to
*Kiliki* for my beautiful signature!*

YES! It just started happening and it's funny you posted because I am in the middle of having this conversation with my mom (by email) as I type! I never had this with my first pregnancy, but then again, I have all kinds of sucky symptoms that I never had the first time around.

This girl is kicking my butt! And back. And hips. And lungs! lol

Yes but I have asthma and it's pretty bad when pregnant. Plus she's been in my ribs and that doesn't help things.

It hasnt been that bad for me but trying to sleep sometimes or walking too fast will knock the breath right out of me and I seriously have to make myself stop what I am doing or change position and focus on breathing! I do hope it does settle down sooner than later because its really annoying.

and I hope you feel better! Thats scary if you arent breathing right!

I get short of breath easily but I think it's because I'm out of shape!

I have the shortness of breath too. It comes and goes and I think it just depends on her position.
