7 1/2 weeks and shortness of breath
avatar
Carleysmom posted:
I am 30 years old, 7 1/2 weeks pregnant, in good shape with no previous health issues. My first pregnancy went well with no complications. I had issues breathing in the last trimester just because at that point there is pressure everywhere but with this one I'm a bit nervous. I am told this is normal but I have been getting short of breath very easily. At some points it's even when I'm sitting down. It is usually when I go upstairs in my house or when I take the stairs at work. (I hate elevators )

Any thoughts? I'm not even scheduled to go into the doctor until March 15th.

Thanks!

Sarah

Hmm, I think this is probably normal - pregnancy alters our bodies so much! You mentioned you're not able to see your doctor until March 15th! Yikes. If you want to ask a doctor (free) before actually seeing your doctor, I was reading this blog that featured an interesting app: http://bit.ly/135rGq8 Hope that helps!
