Question
Answer: Hello dear. Yes you can. The cause for shortness of breath is progesterone, a hormone that increases during pregnancy. High progesterone levels cause pregnant women to breathe faster. The rise in progesterone begins early in pregnancy, and the shortness of breath it causes. Usually it's nothing to be concerned about, but it's best to check with your doctor, since lots of things can cause shortness of breath. Take care.

Question: 5 th week pregnent i feel shortness of breath can i take hot steam of vicks
Answer:  It is common to experience shortness of breath especially in the third trimester and also in the early pregnancy.  • Your growing baby and expanding uterus push the diaphragm (the muscle that lies under the ribcage), restricting the amount of space for your lungs and making it hard for them to expand • It will, therefore, make you to breathe faster, as if you have just run a marathon. It is quite normal and completely harmless to you and your fetus. Caution: If you have breathlessness along with heart burn, racing pulse, palpitations or cold fingers and toes, it could indicate a serious complication of heart or lungs. You should immediately check with your doctor.

Question: Am having shortness of breath after breakfast. Is it normal
Answer: Hello dear,  usually breathing problems during pregnancy nothing to be concerned about, but it's best to check with your doctor, since lots of things can cause shortness of breath. A few causes, I've found were, low blood sugar, dehydration, and your body adjusting to the new blood volume. So try eating a piece of fruit or drinking more watter. when you feel, try to take fresh air. Try this breathing style: Sit in a chair with bent knees and relaxed shoulders, head, and neck.... Place your hand on your belly.... Breathe in slowly through your nose. ... As you exhale, tighten your muscles. ... Put more emphasis on the exhale than the inhale. ... Repeat for about five minutes.
