I've had some serious braxton-hicks the last few days(I'm 37 weeks now).But I feel them starting in my throat,lungs,respritory area before my muscles feel tight,then as muscles get into a good pull the air gets shallow,and a few times I've actually coughed for air.This is starting to worry me.Will I not be able to breathe in labor?Do I have a clot or a tumor or a slow almost stroke?I'm only 27 and considered quite healthy.We are planning a homebirth,and the mw said it could just be the baby pushing on my diaphram or something.I don't want to put her career in jeopardy for me not knowing what this really could be.Any ideas?I've never had asthma,or anything.I'm going to call and run it by a trusted naturopath in the morning,if I don't go into labor tonight...
Has anyone ever heard of or had a similar experience?
