Shortness of Breath

I seem to be getting short of breath more often here lately. Nothing I would consider serious, but walking up a slight incline and not being able to chat on the phone simultaneously? Having a discussion with DH and feeling it afterward? I think I'll call the doctor about it this week, just because I have mild asthma and want to make sure everything is OK.

Yeah, I'm with you on the shortness of breath and I don't even have asthma.  I think it might just be a pregnancy symptom but it's safer to check with your doc.  I was showing some friends my new home and simply opened my front door and walked to the living room and was panting and out of breath.  It's sooo annoying.  GL

I am over 40 so yea I do get shortness of breath more often than I did 5 years ago.   Yous should always check with your doc anytime you see changes no matter how small you think it is.
