Now for the last 3 days, i am suffering from breathing problem. I couldn't able to breath. but i have no cough or cold. And my belly size also looks big like a 6 month pregnant belly. is it anything wrong with my pregnancy?
Welcome to ehealthforum,
You can get breathing problems and chest discomfort during pregnancy as the circulatory volume of blood increases to support the nutrition to baby. Bloating is also a common symptom during early pregnancy which can make you feel you have a larger belly. Since you have had prior early pregnancy losses, you should consider completing the treatment course prescribed by your gynecologist to prevent miscarriage. Get your blood work-up done to rule out anemia. Be regular with taking your prenatal vitamins and iron supplements (if started) and you will feel better. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet. Avoid any heavy work. Avoid having intercourse during first trimester. Avoid lifting heavy objects and climbing stairs or standing for long periods. Be in regular follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist. Look out for development of any danger signs like spotting/bleeding, increasing abdominal cramps, increasing backpain, any abnormal symptoms that could suggest impending miscarriage.
