Discomfort, difficulty breathing
Carleysmom posted:
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.

I have had the same kind of pressure and have been worried myself im currently 6 weeks and have had this problem just recently with it also trouble breathing I had some breathing issues with my first pregnancy as well but not to this point at even right now having this cramping pressure feeling im glad im not the only one but it does cause some concern hope everything is okay, i hate having to wait so long to get a sight of the baby to confirm for me that everything is just fine.

I hate it too!! I am glad I am not the only one.. I hope everything is okay with you as well! I wish I could get in earlier just so I know but they said it's normal so I just have to wait. Thank you for replying.
