Question: This is my 14th week and I am feeling brathing problem sometimes. I daily use stairs to reach office. My office is on second floor. Do I have to avoid stairs to prevent breathing problem? Please suggest.
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.
