Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

i get outta breath to..just cuz u feel her low doesnt mean ur not gunna get outta breath , ur uterus and everything is still getting larger pushing everything up and back..if u get outta breath alot  try not to do to much or ask ur doc what to 24 wks and get outta breath alot too..and as long as u feel her move, dont worry about what time shes moving at because the baby is/has developed its own sleep pattern now.
