Shortness Of Breath And Breath At 21 Weeks Gestation?
Is it natural to start feeling short of breath? Eat even a little
Hello Irmayani, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
As pregnancy increases, the uterus enlarges in the abdomen and this enlargement can cause pressure on the organs around the uterus in the stomach such as the stomach, small intestine and large intestine, diaphragm (the limiting muscles of the chest cavity and cavity stomach), and bladder.
At 21 to 22 weeks' gestation, the size of the uterus when examined is generally at least reached the navel and this size is reasonable if it causes a feeling of tightness in some people.
However, if the complaint is felt to be very disturbing and causes you to experience difficulty in eating, drinking, or doing activities as usual, or even accompanied by other complaints such as nausea and vomiting, it is advisable to consult the complaint further with your obstetrician for further examination. so it can be determined whether you need further therapy or not.
I hope this helps.
