Today I was cleaning my house & for some reason everytime u clean my kitchen I always get a shortness of breathe & get so sick & weak that I have to take a break. Today I almost passed out. Why is this happening .? Am I standing to long, I am a high risk pregnancy & I'm supposed to be on bed rest but I can't sit still especially w/ me being a single parent to a 2 yr old boy...

If you're supposed to be on bed rest then I'm guessing that you should be in bed or taking it easy at least. Drink some water, don't stand for too long, and if you really feel the need to clean then take a break every few minutes. Call your doctor and see if what you're doing is too much stress on your body.
