    Hi everyone, I believe I am approx 6 1/2 weeks pregnant with my third pregnancy (I had a miscarriage with my second about this time). When I was pregnant with my daughter, who will be 4 next month, I had some cramping and discomfort during the first trimester but otherwise had no complications. WIth this pregnancy I am so tired and I am not having cramping but I having this unusual pressure (I can't think of a good way to explain it) and when I have this pressure I almost feel like I can't breathe. When I was pregnant with my daughter I was having the breathing issues but that was before she was born when the baby is pushing on your diaphragm. Now it's just weird.. Anyone else experience this this early? My doctor doesn't even want to see me to check on everything until I am 11 weeks, unless I have complications prior to that date.
