23 weeks pregnant
Dear Doc. I am 23 weeks pregnant & for the last 4 weeks, I wake up in the middle of the night & cannot breathe. i have to take long deep breaths just to catch my breath. Even though i am SO tired, I battle to sleep because i keep getting up not being able to breathe... is this normal? Could it be congestion?

This does not sound normal. It could be lung congetsion or a clot in the lung. Speak to your doctor immediately.
