    Default For real?

    Two things -

    This morning I was eating an orange and was seriously getting out of breath from the effort it was taking to chew it. It happened at lunch as well.. I know they say you'll get out of breath easier as you go on in pregnancy, but really? Eating? It wasn't like I was going up and down stairs...and it was an ORANGE, not a friggin steak...


    I was reading about labor. I've decided I'll skip that part.

    LOL about getting out of breath eating an orange. I haven't experienced that particular joy of pregnancy yet, but I do remember getting very out of breath over relatively easy things when I was far along with T. They squish everything in there, including your lungs. If I remember correctly, you are on the short side, aren't you? I bet you have even less room in there being smaller.

    Also LOL about skipping labor. Hmmm, yes, here's to hoping....

    Alissa, yeah.. I'm only 5 feet tall. DH is just a hair over 6 feet tall (well that depends on what day you ask him, sometimes he's a little over, sometimes he's exactly 6 feet and sometimes he's under... goofy man)... and I wasn't a small baby and neither was he, so I assume baby girl will run out of space pretty quick...

    I haven't been short of breath while eating. But I do get short of breath when putting my shoes on, shaving my legs or doing any major bending.

    I have had shortness of breath as well. Not while eating necessarily, but sometimes just a little movement will cause it, like Elizabeth said, putting on shoes or bending is hard.

    I get it while doing any kind of bending or stair climbing or even sitting hunched over.
