I got that a lot when I was pregnant with my daughter. I went into the E.R. and they just told me "it happens". It wouldn't hurt to call your OB incase he/she wants to see you about it :P

i get that all the time, especially when i recline in my lazy boy chair. my baby likes to lay on my lungs. but if it's really really bad to point where you can't breathe and you're having chest pains, I'd go to the doctor.

don't feel bad ...this is my first baby and i've gone to the ER 3 times since i've been pregnant and was told i'm fine each time ...i'm a worrywart ...if it weren't for my fiance telling me to calm down all the time, i'd probably be running to the ER every week lol ...but better to be safe than sorry IMO

Thats quite normal. You're losing room in your body. It will only get worse from here. Until you deliver ;)

Thanks ladies ! Spoke to a on call nurse & she told me I should be fine , she said u must be a first time mom & I laughed .. Every little thing freaks me out but she prescribed me some iron pills because she also said it sounds like I'm anemic .. But other then that just glad to knw I wasn't dying ! Lol :p
