Shortness of breath
This is but kinda isn't baby related I have been short of breath everyday for a few weeks I just had a pregnancy massage done today actually I'm currently 9 weeks pregnant but when my hubby runs my back the shortness of breath goes away but it comes back like 20 to 30 minutes later I'm not sure if it's due to me being pregnant or what it's kinda freaking me out I do smoke and I am really wanting to quit

Shortness of  breath can be pretty normal.  If you do smoke, it could be contributing to that- so I would ask your doctor about it at your appointment- is it soon?

Shortness of breath is definitely common in pregnancy bc we are pumping a larger blood volume than normal. However smoking by itself will cause shortness of breath as well. Speak to your obgyn as soon as you can to make sure there are no complications
