Re: Short of breath?

You're not a freak. I often feel like I can't get enough air. It seems to happen to me in crowded places (like in church today) or in the shower when it's really humid (there's no fan in our bathroom). We also live at high elevation. I get all light headed and feel like I am going to pass out. I had to step out for some fresh air during church today and that always solves the problem. Same thing with getting out of the stuffy bathroom. It happens to me every pregnancy. I've always figured that you really do need more oxygen when pregnant due to the higher blood volume and the two people who need oxygen. So it makes sense to me.
