Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The size of an increasingly large pregnancy can cause pressure on the lungs which makes pregnant women have difficulty breathing, especially when sleeping on your back. Not only that, this pregnancy can also urge the stomach to make stomach acid reflux (backflow) that arises tightness. If this condition is mild in intensity, and you can still work well without significant obstacles, often there is no special treatment that needs to be done.
Even so, if you experience difficulty breathing during pregnancy is very annoying, especially to make coughing, chest pain, nausea, vomiting, wheezing, swelling, or other severe complaints, you should be vigilant. It is feared, other than due to normal conditions during pregnancy, complaints that you feel occur aggravated by a disease, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), weak heart (cardiomyopathy), bronchial asthma (asthma), bronchitis, gastritis, gastric ulcer, panic attacks, allergies, excessive anxiety disorders, and so on.
Therefore, if you find a complaint that is very disturbing, you should check yourself directly to the doctor or obstetrician to conduct a more in-depth evaluation, for example through ultrasound, heart records, or other supporting tests. Thus, the best treatment can be given so that your condition improves.
The initial steps you should take:
Limit excessive physical activity
Avoid using clothes that are too tight
When sleeping, don't lie on your back, tilt to the left or raise your chest and head to avoid tightness
Compress the tightness of the chest with warm water
Avoid excessive consumption of foods and drinks that contain lots of gas, such as soda, coffee, tea, mustard greens, cabbage, tubers, coconut milk, chili sauce
Don't think too much
Avoid cigarettes and smoke
Do not carelessly take medication while pregnant without a prescription directly from a doctor
Hope this helps ...
