I am having a really hard time breathing today. It hasnt been tough til now. Max never dropped and I carried him pretty high so I had a really hard time breathing - like would get dizzy, thought I would pass out, etc. - toward the end.<br><br>
I still have 9.5 weeks to go! I dont want this to start now!<br><br>
Sorry, just whining... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">

yep I've been having the same problem. The other day I had to get on my hands and knees in the kitchen because I felt like passing out, my heart was racing, it sucked.

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> Sorry to hear you can't breathe, guys. I have this problem when I eat too much ( <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="blush"> ), and find getting on my knees and leaning forward on my birth ball helps free up some space for my lungs. Sometimes.<br><br>
Hope that babe drops and you get some relief soon. Of course then you'll have to go to the bathroom even MORE often. We just can't win, can we? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"><br><br>

The wierd thing is that this baby, I am not carrying high - she is pretty low. Which is why I have the pubic bone and siatic pain this time that I didnt have w/ Max. But my problem is that while I am tall (5'9") its mostly legs - I dont have a very long torso so not much room. And to top it off I am measuring big (measured 31 weeks at my 28 week apt.) - so I just think she is a porker already :LOL Max was big too.<br><br>
Oh well - not much can be done about it - just gotta get through the next 9 weeks!

Hmmm, this is my first time, so I don't have a good feel for whether I'm carrying "low" or "high". But I have the sciatic nerve and pubic bone pain, too, so wonder if I'm carrying low. I'm also 5'9" with long legs, but only have the breathing issues when I eat too much (as mentioned), and I get out of breath with very minor exertion (like walking to my car at the end of the day), but I figure that's pretty normal. And mine is measuring big too (31 cm at 29.5 week appt). I was hoping it was due to my excessive weight gain, and her not being a BIG baby, lol.<br><br>
I'm with you ... just gotta get through the next 10 weeks.
