cant breathe

the past day or so i feel like i cant breathe, and im dizzy. it gets worse when i lay down and sometimes my chest will feel a little tight when im laying there. ive tried to prop myself up a little but i cant sleep like that and now i cant sleep laying down either cuz i cant breathe. is this normal or do i probably have some kind of respiratory infection? im 27 wks. i just feel soo tired but cant fall asleep

Re: cant breathe

You wouldn't happen to be laying on your back, would you? That is exactly what happens to me if I end up on my back for more than a few minutes. I would definitely bring this up to your doctor for his/her advice - especially as it seems to be happening when you are up as well.

Re: cant breathe

it seems to be only when i lay flat no matter if im on my back or side. i found a comfortable way to prop myself up and it helps a lot for sleeping. i would think that if it was a respiratory infection i would be coughing and im not so idk what it is. it feels like my nose is plugged, almost like its all swelled up in there cuz when i blow it nothing comes out

Re: cant breathe

you shouldn't be laying on your back at this constricts blood flow for you and baby. you should be laying on your side, preferably the left...
