    Default first time pregnancy questions!

    Hi there, I'm 28 weeks pregnant and wondering if you guys could tell me is it normal to feel really hot, shortness of breath and sometimes a little dizzy??
    I have asthma as well... just wanted to know if it was normal to have all this throughout the pregnancy!

    It was normal for me but only when I was at work. I just sat down, had a drink of water and tried to relax

    If your concerned though you should give your midwife or OB a call

    If it's worrying you, mention it to your doctor, but you are probably hot because you're incubating a baby which can in turn make you feel dizzy, and the shortness of breath will most likely be because bub is getting bigger, taking up more space and squishing up your insides. But it won't hurt to mention it!

    Agree with the previous poster - worth mentioning it (or give the midwife/OB a call if you can).

    I felt light headed often when I was pg - for me, it was actually low blood pressure able to be controlled by increased fluids, putting my head between my legs and making sure I didn't recline back when sitting down.

    But that's just me - not necessarily why you're experiencing those symptoms

    I'm 27 weeks and feel exhausted moving around sometimes, and I haven't really done anything. I haven't put on that much weight either, so it's not from a huge amount of excess weight, lol.

    I just had mine on the weekend and I'm 30 weeks on wed. My friends and MIL pretty much planned it so I didnt have to do anything but it was really great! Now I have time to chill out and organise baby stuff

    I Think I started mine 3-4 weeks before shower. I wanted mine early so I knew what I needed and what I didn't. Def don't need clothes so now just need to write a list of what else I need...
