Oh yes. Am 17 weeks and out of breath from walking up the stairs!
I am anaemic though, but I was in my previous pregnancies and I don't remember being this out of breath this early on before. I thought I was just grossly unfit, so it is heartening to see it is not just me!
I have this too (now 20 weeks), again since very early on. Am having to try to downplay my panting at the slightest incline. I also feel the blood pounding in my ears when I exert myself - eg after getting dressed. I think its the extra bloodflow. there is more blood to pump round my system and to oxygenate so those systems have had to work very hard, I felt my blood volume increased loads really early- well I got all veiny everywhere. Am not anemic and BP is fine, was also reasonably fit before pregnancy. This is the part of the work of being pregnant I really didnt expect, that everything just walking is so much harder and its not even the weight yet its just my body doing stuff to make me ready to take the weight of the baby.
I'm the same. I'm 10 weeks with my 4th child. Three months ago I was running 10k races. Now I get breathless if I go upstairs.I'm also infinitely sicker and tireder than I was in previous pregnancies, though.
Hi all - thanks so much for your messages. Has stopped me feeling like an unhealthy freak! Girl I work with is also pregnant and fitter than ever - I look like her chain smoking, fat eating nemisis! I'm sure my colleagues think I'm putting my breathlessness on!
