<p>Anybody else find that lately they are experiencing shortness of breath?  I only have to exert myself in the slightest and I'm breathing like I've been exercising.  Just wondering if it's just me.</p>

Yea, I definitely have that. I tend to try and do things, like dishes, while on the phone. People always ask if I just ran a marathon. Reading books to the kids at night, I'm always huffing and puffing. Crowded lungs I guess!

<p>I have it too.  Totally pathetic.  I teach some classes and have trouble breathing all the way through.  And walking up the stairs totally does me in.  I'd be excited for the time when baby drops, but mine don't drop until they are on their way out. </p>

<p>Me too. Any little thing and I am breathing so heavily.  Just standing even does it!</p>

<p>yep, and I find it kinda embarrassing, even though I know it's normal. Makes me feel sooooo out of shape or something.</p>

<p>Yup, me too.  Any exertion whatsoever, but even reading out loud will do it, too.  I feel that omg, I'm so out of shape thing too....I know it's about capacity for air, and not all about that....but panting is panting.</p>

<p>I've been getting this the past two nights, it'll actually wake me up! I think maybe because I'm laying down. My DH has commented on my "marathon breathing" a few times as well ;)</p>
