Is anybody else experiencing or have experienced this ?
Shortness of breath is very common. I have it too, the baby an uterus are only getting bigger so it squishes everything. Including your lungs, you're almost there though so it will go away when baby's here!:)
I get it too, especially when sitting upright, feels like the top of my stomach is cutting me in half at the chest. I even get a deep red crease mark where my stomach cuts in. I like to sit in a recliner chair to take the pressure off.
