Question: hii...frnds.....mjhe achanak s chakkar aa rhe h and feeling short of breath...wat to do..is it normal
Answer: hello.. dear dont worry yeh normal hai..
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.
Dizziness or feeling faint is a normal symptom during pregnancy. It is more common in the first trimester, but you may experience it throughout your pregnancy.
Here are some helpful suggestions to reduce dizziness:
Avoid standing for long periods. If you must stand, make sure that you keep your feet moving to help increase circulation
Get up slowly from either sitting or lying down (this is especially important when you are getting out of the bath)
Eat regularly. Avoid long periods between meals; it is better to snack throughout the day
Avoid hot baths or showers
Avoid lying on your back once you reach the middle of your second trimester
Wear loose, comfortable clothing to avoid restricting circulation
