Answer: Hello, in your 3rd trimester the uterus shifts and presses on the lower abdomen called the diaphragm, your uterus puts pressure on your diaphragm, and this reduces lung capacity.and you may experience shortness of breath. Here are few tips to reduce shortness of breath: Good posture: Keep your back and shoulders straight to give your lungs room to expand as much as possible. If breathlessness is disturbing your sleep, then put with more pillows. Lift your arms up: This will take pressure off your rib cage and allow you to breathe easily. Breathing exercises that are taught during yoga classes may help you control your breathing better. Yoga is a gentle exercise that will also keep you fit. Hope it helps.
