answers (3)

I have had problems with being short of breath twords the end of my pregnancy before.. not so much pains though just like if I had walked alot or something and was short of breath although with being pregnant I didnt necessarily need to do anything to feel "windy" and short of breathe.. I hope this helps some =)
I have terrible breathing problems now. its because the baby needs you oxegen too.
I suggest seeing a doctor, there could be other underlying issues other than pregnancy if you're having chest pains. When you are carrying a baby it's always better to be safe than sorry. However, most pregnant women have trouble breathing in late pregnancy. having a big ol baby in there pushing on your insides makes it difficult to breathe, not to mention the extra weight. If you are concerned and it's a big problem, tell your doctor.
