just wondering (any preggies) kate
I am curently 34 weeks pregnant and for the last couple of days have been feeling REALLY uncomfortable, it feels like somebody is sitting on my lungs I have trouble breathing and also have weird pains in my sides sometimes both sides at once and sometimes only one side.

Is this normal. ? I know that my baby is getting big and that I will feel uncomfortable but it doesn't matter if I stand, sit or lie down it just feels like he is constantly pushing against my lungs or something this is really painful.

Kate you are also about 34/35 weeks pregnant are you also experiencing this TERRIBLE uncomfortableness??

This sounds normal. Mention it to your doctor next time you see him/her so that they can check that there is no other problem.
