Hi there and thanks for posting this question. I am sorry to hear about your very uncomfortable experience. In regards to your question it is extremely unlikely that your brain experienced a lack of oxygen due to compression of your tummy. In other words we don't only breathe through our nostrils (nose) but also we have a very powerful muscle called the diaphragm. The diaphragm separates the thoracic cavity (heart, lungs & ribs) from the abdominal cavity and performs an important function in respiration. A diaphragm in anatomy can refer to other flat structures such as the urogenital diaphragm or pelvic diaphragm, but "the diaphragm" generally refers to the thoracic diaphragm.
