Post subject: Short of breath
Im not sure if its to do with pregnancy but I'm extremely short of breath recently. I remember getting this way towards the very end of pregnancy with ava but im not even showing with this one yet. Any ideas what it could be. I also keep getting heart palpitations, head aches etc.. not sure if they are all related. Does anyone have any ideas what might be wrong? xx

Have you had heartburn at all? I tend to get a bit that way when I've got heartburn, if not though I would maybe mention it to the midwife and see what she says xx

It could be related to the extra blood your body is producing Confused
I started noticing it about 16/18wks cos I remember saying to OH 'surely I shouldnt be feeling out of puff so early on' then I read something somewhere that explained it but I cant remember where now lol

i kept getting really bad chest pains feeling like i couldn't breath and my heart was racing, mine ended up being indigestion and because i didnt know what the pains were i was having panic attacks which caused the shortness off breath and racing heart and literally feeling like i was dying, i just try and remain calm and breath through it and take a rennie lol now, but was very scary especially since id never had a panic attack before.
