Answer: Hello dear As a normal part of pregnancy, your breathing may be affected by the increase in the hormone progesterone, which causes you to breathe in more deeply. 5 ways to reduce shortness of breath during pregnancy : 1. Good posture: Keep your back and shoulders straight to give your lungs room to expand as much as possible. 2. Extra pillows: If breathlessness is disturbing your sleep, be comfortable with more pillows. 3. Eat healthily: Being overweight can make breathing even harder, so eat a healthy diet to maintain a healthy pregnancy weight. 4. Yoga: Breathing exercises that are taught during yoga classes may help you control your breathing better.

Question: Feeling breathless and baby movement is very high.I can feel my fetus butt right below my chest.
Answer: hello.. dear..for short of breath.. You may be out of breath now because you need more oxygen during pregnancy, and your body adapts to meet this need in several ways. Rising hormones, particularly progesterone, directly affect your lungs and stimulate the respiratory center in your brain. And although the number of breaths you take per minute changes very little during pregnancy, the amount of air you inhale and exhale with each breath increases significantly. Being short of breath in early pregnancy may feel more like a heightened awareness of the need to breathe.If you're feeling a little breathless, try these tips for relief: Take things a bit more slowly and don't push yourself too hard when being active. Sit up straight and keep your shoulders back (especially when sitting) to give your lungs as much room as possible to expand. Prop yourself up a bit with a few extra pillows when you're in bed at night. Try to be patient. It's no fun to be uncomfortably out of breath. But after you give birth, your breathing will soon feel like it did before you were pregnant. also baby movement high is also normal dear dont worry.. Every pregnancy is unique. There's no set number of movements or kicks that you should feel so it's unlikely that your baby's moving "too much". Instead, try to learn your baby's individual patterns of movement. You may find that there are particular times of day when she's most active. She may also respond by moving more when you eat a meal, have a cold drink, or sit still and relax. Many women feel their baby move the most when they're in bed at night. This is perfectly normal so just try to relax as best you can. If she's moving too much for you to sleep, encourage her to settle.

Question: Left side chest pain
Answer: Hello, I'm happy to help. Breast pain during pregnancy is quite common, due to harmonal changes. You can use hot or cold compresses on your breasts. Wear a firm support bra. Cover breasts with warm, wet towel for 10-15 minutes. The warmth increases blood circulation, reducing swelling and tenderness. Hope this information was helpful.
