    Breathlessness is normal because you have reduced lung capacity with bubba pushing everything up. However if your getting palpitations too you should mention it - likelihood is that it's not a big deal, and it's "normal" levels of breathlessness, but it's best a professional decide what levels are "normal"!!!

    Sooo been doctors, everythings fine pulse,oxygen, blood pressure, temperature all fine , he said the feeling of the pulse pulsing can happen as bodys working harder or sumet so it feels like your pulse is beating stronger and faster, so not to worry, hes testing me for being anaemic just incase so got blood test tomoz but last time i had blood test i had loads of iron, so im probably not! I feel better for checking tho! X

    Totally normal heart and lungs working harder not just with the baby but you have 30% more blood pumping around. This can drop your Hb iron store as dilutes blood and it is the red blood cells that carry the oxygen around your body.

    It's a constant loop, you get out of breath, panic, gets worse. Just relax, doc says its ok, anxiety won't help, it will make you breath rapidly,

    Take a chill pill :)
