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.

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.

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
