I'm having trouble breathing properly-it feels like I have feet pushing my lungs up and can't eat properly in the evenings as I feel like part if my stomach is squashed too and also that something is stuck in my gullet. Also have horrible acid reflux in my throat! Eurrgh! Anyone else had/have this and do you have any tips?
im the same
no tips at all sorry
only thing that helps me is to lie down and stretch out
midwife says its because babys so high up in my ribs everythings squashed
feel full up all the time too cus my tummy feels squashed so i feel fuller quicker lol
Yes me too!! I've stopped eating a meal at night as that's when I feel it's worse, I tend to stock up in the day time when I'm on my feet more then just been eating snacks like fruit and yoghurt in the evenings. Mines worse when I sit on the sofa after a meal feels like I can't breath and my skins stretching so much. The only way I cure it is laying down!
yup normal as you get further along your stomach is flat like a pancake with not much room so the food can even sometimes come back up lol doctor told me eat littler meals threw the day i had this about 30 weeks-33 weeks eating smaller meals helped alot
I have those days so I feel for you! Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be much that can be done about it.
Prenatal massage can help with breathing if you specifically tell the masseuse about that. I found around week 29-35 especially bad for breathing ... now it's just every so often ... I stopped massages now because it's so $$$ but as it's not so bad now, just doing stretches (child's pose) and the occasional massage from DH help.
In terms of eating, sadly small meals is the only thing you can do. Tums helped me with acid reflux a bit. Lying on your left side instead of the right helps. If you're like me and have food aversion to practically everything still, all I can say is try everything and if it doesn't work that day, try something else. Fruits and veggies kinda help open up my appetite some (esp certain tastes like lemon, parsleys or cilantro), but I found that having a decent amount of water, protein and carbs is necessary to not feel completely awful.
