Having a hard time breathing and heart has been racing
An_253213 posted:
Hi. I am currently 8 months pregnant and for the past few days Ive been having a hard time breath and my heart has been racing since yesterday. I can't really explain except I just don't feel Right. Please no bashing but I am still trying to quit smoking (Saturday is my goal), I have asthma and baby is high up but Ive had good blood pressure and everything else, plus baby has been 100% healthy throughout the pregnancy.. I'm wondering if I should be worried and if I should wait it out till tomorrow to go to my doctors or if I should not wait and go into the hospital tonight? Again please no bashing.
