I am 26 weeks pregnant with my second baby, just this past week or so I have been having a really hard time breathing, it feels like no matter how deep of a breath I take I just can't get enough oxygen. Also this comes on really quickly and normally I am not doing anything that would be making me out of breath. I also am having pain in my chest when I breath in. It really has been making my very lightheaded and I am really worried that something might be wrong. I remember being a little short of breath with my 1st pregnancy but it wasn't until I was about 35 weeks or more and it really was very manageable and only really happened if I ate too much. I mentioned this to my doctor and she really didn't seem too concerned and didn't even listen to my lungs or anything. She said it was probably due to pollen. I really don't know if I'm over reacting or not. Has this happened to anyone else and what do you think I should do, should I get another opinion just to make sure? Because if I'm not getting enough oxygen then neither is my baby and that really scares me.
