BREATHLESSNESS

Causes:
Breathlessness is also a common phenomena experienced by pregnant women. As your baby grows and your womb expands and extends upwards, your lungs become choked and have less room to expand and take in oxygen. You may feel comfortable from your 36th week onwards when your baby's head descends lower in to the pelvis in preparation for birth. However this may not happen until you go into labour, especially is this is not your first baby.

Remedies:

  • All you can do is try to experiment with different positions:sitting backwards on a high-back chair and resting your arms along the top seems to increase breathing.
  • Sleep with your chest propped upon pillows.

Consult your doctor if breathlessness is severe and is not related to physical activity.
