I’m 31 weeks pregnant and FTM. I’ve started getting pains in my chest, it feels like someone is pressing down really hard. Is this normal or should I be concerned? Thanks in advance

I’m 34 weeks and also FTM.
I’ve recently got really bad chest pains and exactly the same feeling like someone is standing on my chest.
I believe it to be anxiety related (I don’t have anything in particular to be worried about currently). I’ve had anxiety in the past and have had similar feelings.
I sometimes get mild panic attacks with the chest pains also.
It might be worth monitoring it and if it carries on to the point it’s worrying you too much speak to your doc/midwife just to be sure xx
