Hi Ladies, would you think its "normal" to be short on breath/kind of struggling to catch my breath? This isn't after exercise or anything, this is just in general. I don't have any respiratory issues, so this is a new one to me.... :eek

I'm exactly the same and the same number of weeks. My baby is lying quite high and I think that's limiting the lung capacity.

it is likely to be the position of the baby, but without meaning to alarm, i just wanted to say maybe worth mentioning to gp, since risk is low but being pregnan can put you at risk of dvt or clots in the lungs, so maybe double check with gp
