I sometimes have a litle trouble breathing..or sometimes it feels like there is no blood getting to my head..mainly when i lie down on my back or if im sitting around. does anyone else get that or know what could be wrong if anything?

Baby's growth is crowding your organs, including your lungs. Personally, when I take deep breaths, I wind up coughing or wheezing like an asthmatic from this normal pregnancy symptom. Also, your body is working harder, pumping more blood I believe it is. That could make you feel lightheaded.

if your breathings really bad, like almost too much to bear, it could also be that your iron's low. i told my doc that i was having trouble breathing and at my last dr. appt, and in fact i almost felt like i was having an asthma attack just while sitting in the waiting room ( i don't have asthma). i also told him that i'd practically be out of breath just from walking from room to room. he looked at my chart, told me my iron was low (even though i was already taking 2 prenatals a day) and told me to double up on my iron pills. i feel alot better now.

I get out of breath really easy. I also get dizzy and lightheaded often my dr. said to drink plenty of fluids and make sure you are eating. as for the breathign you are working harder and carrying around extra weight.
