I am 31 weeks, due August 29th. Lately I have been feeling weak and out of breath from the smallest things. Im not tired b/c I do get a good nights sleep but just feeling very drained. I never felt like this with my other dd's. I have only gained 10 lbs so its not that Im over weight or anything.....could it be something to be concerned about? My girlfriend mentioned enemia SP?? I dont want to bother the dr. if its nothing, just wanted to know if anyone else feels this way. Thanks.
I was like that with my first son and i wasnt that big either. I was very anemic, so it is possible that you have anemia, but your doc should be able to run some tests and find out. If you are anemic, they will probably just prescribe some iron pills to you.
I am also 31w due Aug 30. I feel out of breath all the time. I am overweight but I am very swollen. My blood pressure is high so I am having to relax and limit my activities. If my blood pressure doesn't go down I'll be having him in a couple of weeks and that I am very nervous about. This is my first. Take care
I am 30 weeks and have been feeling out of breath also espically when I stand for long periods of time and just little things where I have to just take in a deep breath....I think its normal but if your concerned then I'd talk to your doctor about it...but I'm sure your just gearing up for those last weeks ...I'll be hanging in there with you haha
My girlfriend had the same problem with high blood pressure and she had some other problems as well but she went to the dr. on monday and her blood pressure was really high so they induced her at 35 weeks. They had her on pills and told her to take it easy but nothing helped. Anyways her baby was fine....weighed 7 lbs and needed a little help breathing but that was it. Just take it easy and thats all you can do. Just wanted to let you know her little baby was doing well so you dont worry. Good luck and thanks to everyone for your comments.
Hey! I just went to the doctor yesterday to get my asthma meds refilled. I hadn't taken them in about a year, but lately I have felt so miserable. I think it's a mix between my asthma hating humidity and the baby. My doc told me that it is completely normal to feel this about now b/c the uterus is so large and moving higher and higher that it minimizes lung capacity. I am also anemic, but that usually just makes me fell really run down all the time...not out of breath. You could mention it to your doc that you want your iron checked though that way if you are anemic they can get you some supplements! Only 8 weeks and 5 days!! :) (Well 6 days for you...but close enough, huh? lol)
Oh I know I am counting down the days too! I cant wait!! I called my dr.'s office and she said to double up on my prenatel vitamins for the extra iron....but my mom said to be careful b/c that could really constipate me. I just finally became regular lately after all my problems with hemmeroids...yeh!! I tell ya, the fun never ends eh?
