Re: Shortness of breath while laying down trying to sleep

I notice that when I am laying in bed at night I have trouble taking in a big, deep breath. I think it's because the baby and my uterus are so much bigger now that it's compressing all of my organs up into my chest so it does make it harder to breathe at times. It's all part of the fun!!

Try sleeping on your left side...that is the best for blood flow to the uterus and should make you feel better! Chat Icon

That's what I did too and it helps. Feel better! It would scare me so I would have to sit up, catch my breath and then lay down. Chat Icon
