Hi! I have found out i am pregnant a few weeks ago then out of the blue i started yawning excessively it feels like i cant yawn deep enough down into my lungs to get all the oxygen i need, i went to the doctor and he told me i was getting air down into my lungs (however i wasnt doing the yawning thing at the time) it comes and goes in episodes and sometimes if i get a deep enough breath in it will go away for a few hours, i have found that leaning over and covering my mouth when i breath will help me to get that breath but it is getting extremely aggravating. i have bad indigestion and acid with this pregnancy also so i dont know if that can be a contributing factor, i hope its nothing serious but after a while of trying to breathe deep i feel sort of light headed...i would like to know what has caused this sudden onset of Cant Breathe Right!! i wanted to self diagnose and call it hyperventilation but when it starts im not breathing rapidly just normal so i dont know if there can be different kinds of hyperventilation or not? has anyone heard of anything like this??
