saw midwife this morning and i complained of having pains under bump which she said was ligament pain.
i also said i was getting short of breath just standing and felt very uncomfortable. she said it was baby pushing everything up.
so tonight i have been in pain with what i thought was heartburn bought on my cola, however i was catching up with the million baby programmes i watch and there was a lady on there with a blood clot in her lung.
i have just googled this and top signs are shortness of breath and chest pain.
i have just sat here crying now panicking.
i have never had heartburn before and only ever had indegestion once.....i know i am probably being silly and thinking irrationally from being sleep deprived and hormonal.
just saw your name pop up at the top just as I was shutting down my lap top and did not want you to go unanswered - oh honey try not to worry too much tonight and def go and see your GP for some reassurance tomorrow.
I was very short of breath for the whole last trimester - I found it hard to stand and talk/sing without feeling queasy and faint. I am sure it was cos Cassius was breech and had his head shoved up into my lungs!
I am sure someone will be along here with professional/ better advice - maybe try hunting down Lulumama?
Try and take some good, as deep as poss breaths, to relax your diaphragm. Have you got a birthing ball to sit on - I found slumping on sofa made me worse !
hello iamamummy I'm sure i remember having something like this at the end of my pregnancy - it all got very uncomfortable, very sore under rib area and shortness of breath. i have had pleurisy (water on lung - not when preg tho') similar symptoms to clot (dr thought i had clot when i went to hosp) anyway, what am trying to say is am sure what you're describing is normal pregnancy squishing. I think if it was a clot you would be sure of it. But obviously if you are really worried you must get checked out! you know your body best!!
