Normally Shortness Of Breath And Chills When Pregnant?
Night, I am pregnant Trimester 2, often feel shortness of breath and hot and cold, is it normal?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First I want to confirm beforehand, have you taken an objective body temperature measurement (with a thermometer) to find out if you really have a fever or not? Are there other symptoms that you feel besides shortness of breath, such as coughing, chest pain, night sweats, body weakness, etc.?
Basically symptoms such as shortness of breath are indeed commonly felt by pregnant women, especially when the pregnancy is getting bigger. Shortness of breath can be caused by normal physiological changes in the body. Increased progesterone during pregnancy can cause an increase in the frequency of breathing and provide sensations such as shortness of breath in pregnant women. The enlarged uterus will also press the organs in the abdomen more upward and can suppress the diaphragm and lungs so that the pulmonary movement feels more limited. The effect of the hormone progesterone and suppression of the stomach organs also often causes the stomach to feel bloated and bloated, and this also often causes symptoms such as shortness of breath in pregnant women. If indeed you only feel shortness of breath symptoms (no fever or other symptoms), then you have nothing to worry about. This condition is normal in pregnant women and will not harm your pregnancy and your fetus. Make sure you tell your obstetrician when you do routine controls to make sure that the tightness you feel is not a serious thing.
If you have done a body temperature check with a thermometer and you get your body temperature indeed rising (up to more than 37.5 degrees Celsius), you feel that your shortness of breath is so heavy that you feel weak, shortness of breath feels continuous, your breath sounds, If you feel other symptoms that are bothering you, you should immediately check with your obstetrician because the condition is abnormal. These symptoms can be caused by infections in the airways (including infections of the lungs), severe allergic reactions, anemia, heart problems, etc.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
