30 weeks and breathing is hard

Does anyone know when the baby is supposed to drop so breathing is easier. It makes me feel claustrophobic!

Horrible, innit?

Unfortunately, mine never dropped because my pelvis was too small and DS was too big. They had to tilt the surgical table to carry out my EMCS so I didn't suffocate and pass out. What I will say is it feels so good when it stops! grin

It gets a little better but I'm still finding it hard to breathe at nearly 38 weeks.

I am the same and baby is apparently already very low with his head down. I am 30 weeks too but feel like my lungs are squished!!

I'm 33 weeks and have been finding it hard to breathe for the last few weeks. It's horrible. I really hope he drops down soon.

I'm also 30 weeks and struggling to breathe sad I keep getting jabs in the ribs too which isn't really helping much
