Hi ladies! I am 4 1/2 weeks pg and ever since I found out I was pg, I have noticed that (off and on) I have shortness of breath, or have to breath deep to catch my breath. I have asthma also and have had this shortness of breath off and on all my life, but was just wondering if being pg can trigger it again. Just curious! And if you have experienced it, how have you dealt with it? Thanks SO much for your help!

Yes, it's very common. I believe it's caused by the increased levels of progesterone. I think it might also have to do with the increased level of blood in your system. There's really not a whole lot you can do except slow down and take it easy. I have asthma, too, but being pg hasn't triggered any attacks, just deeper breathing.
