I'm sorry...it's really actually common and the bigger the baby gets, the more strain it puts on your lungs as well. You might try mentioning it to your Dr., maybe they'll have some advice but I dealt with this for all 3 children and already experiencing shortness of breath. When it gets really bad, try laying down on your side for a while, at least it'll give you a break. Also, floating in a pool is always nice to take some weight off...just be careful coming out, it's like carrying sacks all of a sudden. Good luck!

I totally second the pool! I was feeling just uncomfortable without realizing why and when I took my son swimming last week it was like a giant weight was lifted. What a great feeling. I didn't even connect the two until this thread :)
