    Since yesterday I feel like I cant get enough air in. Im not short of breath as such, just feel like I cant breath properly as I cant do a deep breath, its making me feel tired and a bit panicky. Also my arms feel really heavy from shoulders right down to my fingers and I have a bad headache. Is this just what I should expect for last few weeks? Im thinking it may be because baby is pressing up a bit more?

    I have this regularly, not just with pregnancy either! Doctor said its anxiety!
    I've had this all night long, just because of worrying about hubby being off work for baby and DD coming closer...

    Are you feeling nervous at all or have a lot on your mind?

    Normally if I try and force a yawn out (random I know) but that allows me to take a deep breath, kinda like it opens my lungs or something. Having my arms above my head help aswell as it opens up your chest.

    It may not be this but it all sounds exactly the same as me!

    Hope your feeling better Hun, I know how horrible it can feel :( xx

    I dont think it is Anxiety. I have suffered really bad with this in past, infact right up until I was pregnant then it magically dissapeared :) It feels totally different, kind of like there just isnt enough space to get air in then I feel like im suffocating. I suppose when I describe it it does sound the same doesnt it. Its sort of more constant though and if I sit really straight it helps a bit.

    Things these babies do to us...good job they are worth it!

    I have MW on monday so will see what she says if its still happening.
