Short of breath

I'm miserable!!! I constantly feel like I can't catch my breath. It sucks!!!

I know its "normal" to lose some lung capacity in 3rd tri as baby gets bigger.
I also have a cold and really bad cough that started Fri/Sat. So I can't breathe through my nose!
Add into this the humidity of the high 30s (just over 100 degrees) and its supposed to go over 40 tomorrow.

Anyone else suffering from this? Even just going up stairs, or outside with DS, or even just a coughing fit makes me feel breathless. I'm really miserable. Sad

I bought some vapor rub and thought I'd try using it tonight.

Count me in! I'm right there with you. Friday night I think was the worse I have felt with this heat and everything. I was miserable!

I am there, too! I can not stand the heat even remotely! We went out this weekend and did the last of the heavy-duty yard work and cleaning our shed out and I prolly won't be back out again much until he gets here. Went out on the lake for the last time as well-- the boat ride was MISERABLE! I do not enjoy the bouncing around or climing on and off that boat anymore so I'm prolly done with the lake for the summer b/c I won't have the baby on the boat in that heat and he'll be too small for me to leave with somebody.

i agree the heat makes me feel heavier than i actually am.
it is hard to catch my breath.

i had a cold right at the end of my pregnancy with DS2. they had me using mucinex and then i was using the netti pot which at least cleared out my passages.

hope your cold disappears soon.

hugs!!
