    Ive noticed whenever I have a contraction (braxton hicks or regular) that i get short of breath. Does anyone else experience this????

    I dont remember ever having this with my DD.

    So interested to see this post from today cause all day I have been short of breath and been having what I'm guessing are BH but they don't feel like they did with my other two pregnancies, so I've been sort of second guessing myself all day if things are okay. It doesn't feel like my uterus is tightening but more like my sides, from my ribs all the way down so who knows but TOTALLY shortness of breath for the last few days but most of today for sure.

    Good luck (to us both, hahaha)

    ya i feel like my lungs are being sqeezed, if that makes any sense. it sucks! its like theres so much pressure around my lungs and can barely breathe...but when the contraction stops, its like instant relief!!!
