I think that'd be the baby crowding your lungs, so it feels like you can't breathe.

Re: feel like I can't breath when lying down or reclining..

i am 38 weeks and for a while i couldn't breath very well either while lying on my back or right side. I was told that it was all the pressue on my lungs from the baby. I felt much better after she started to drop though and now she is in place so i can breath, if your baby hasn't dropped yet things should feel alot better after he/she does, hope i was able to help some.
