Difficulty to breath during pregnancy 임신 중 숨이 가쁘다 Difficulty to breath during pregnancy
During pregnancy, progesterone can increase respiratory rate normally under the influence of a female hormone.
In addition, the upper part of the uterus containing the enlarged fetus (uterine base) when the expected delivery date is approached will occupy the belly of the pregnant woman’s abdominal cavity.
In addition, the diaphragm is pushed into the thoracic cavity somewhat, and as a result, the inside of the thoracic cavity becomes narrower than normal, lung capacity decreases than normal, and as a result, shortness of breath may occur.
During pregnancy, pregnant women always have their fetus in their body for 24 hours, so it is similar to physical labor. That can also lead to shortness of breath.
Symptoms of shortness of breath during pregnancy can occur in approximately ⅔ pregnant women. At the same time, in the month of birth, a full-term fetus weighing about 3kg is active in the stomach, so breathing may be more difficult.
It is common for the fetus to breathe normally because the fetus descends into the pelvic cavity during the last few weeks of delivery, even during pregnancy.
If you have a shortage of breath during a physical activity during pregnancy or during your daily activities, doing your work more slowly will make you less breathless.
Relax and live as less stressful as possible Increase your lung capacity and breathe in as much air as possible by stretching your chest as much as you can.
If you are still short or severely breathing, see your doctor as you may be short of breath from anemia, bronchial asthma, or any other condition. Copyright ⓒ 2014 John Sangwon Lee, MD., FAAP
