What causes shortness of breath in pregnancy?

Is it normal to be short of breath at 8 weeks?


Yes. Your body is taking so much energy to adjust and grow that little baby :heart: if you are concerned though i would talk to your doctor :slightly_smiling_face:

For me it is because I have heart palpitations that worsen during pregnancy

It’s definitely normal. I went to the ER for it. They told me the hormone change can cause it as well.

It can also be anemia. Be sure to ask your OB.

Normal, so I wouldn’t rush to the er or call your doc for an appt unless you have other issues. But bc it concerns you, and you should listen to your medical provider, and not a bunch of Facebook doctors, ask about it on your next/first visit.
