Answer: Hi 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.
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.

Answer: Hello dear. Breathing problem at this stage is normal as it is happening due to ur baby putting pressure on the lungs and they are getting compressed. Eating a varied and nutrient-rich diet is especially important during pregnancyand may help reduce symptoms where possible. Your doctor may also recommend you to increase your daily salt intake as it helps in raising ur blood pressure during pregnancy. Taking salt water will help.
