Is it true that if your closer to the end and your having hard time breathing that means the baby can come soon?? with my LO i never went through shortness of breath or sitting down and had trouble breathing?? Curious but the past 2 days i cant sleep at night due to breathing issues and now at work i can hardly breath officially!! 34 weeks yay!!1 LOL

Uh, no. That doesn't even make sense. The baby drops before labor starts, typically. & When baby drops, you can suddenly breath again.

I havent been able to breathe.
The other night when I'd laugh, I would be so put out breathe. And earlier I felt like there was a 100 pound weight on my lungs.

I had trouble breathing near the end of mine, however it doesn't mean that your going into labor anytime soon. Could just be the baby putting pressure on your lungs causing the shortness of breath. I had to sit almost straight up at night to be able to breath while I slept and sometimes that didn't work so I just had to move around until it passed or got to where I could get comfortable and breath pretty good to sleep. Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy and have an easy delivery!!!

You're probably carrying her really high, and she's causing you to have issues breathing. My mom said she had that issue when she was pregnant with me.

Not that I know of. Might be pregnant though if the Debo Vera shot didn't work since I am showing signs of being pregnant but it may just be one of the bugs going around town. Either way I will be happy. (:

Like some mentioned, you're carrying high. I felt the same way and always felt like I was alboring for breath as she and everything else was all squished upwards. The moment my lil guy dropped, I could breath easier again. I'm Due April 24th, but he dropped about 4-5 weeks ago. So doesn't mean it's close, just means she might be getting into position and the head will soon be putting preassure on your pelvis and giving you those oh so lovely sharp pains, lol.
