wow... i've not heard of this before! And how crappy of your doctor to just say she doesn't know what to tell you. When all else fails for me, I google. If I find anything out I'll let you know.

Hi SarahNicole, I've heard of this as I am experiencing something like it!  I know what u mean when u say u r short of breath not doing anything!!  For the past few days now, (I'm 34 weeks) I am just standing and gasping for air!  It's a very strange feeling in my stomach.  So what I did was drink a bit of water, this helped.  I think staying hydrated is important too.  But drinking water didn't help me completely, so what I did afterwards was to just sit down and take slow long breaths...in through nose and out through mouth.  This is what helped me b/c after I got up again the same thing would happen, I'd be just completely winded for NO reason...

I hope u feel better..

I think our babies are pushing up on our diaphrams making it difficult for us to breath. Everything is all squished.  I can't even eat that much anymore b/c I get full too fast...as I think my stomach is squished around....... I haven't had the chest pains though just a sore belly once in a while and the occasional heart burn.

hope u feel better..
