Have you had problems with your iron in previous pregnancies?

Brittany Riggs
Iron in your blood is responsible for carrying oxygen to the brain with anemia that oxygen supply is affected. Therefore the bodies natural response is to change breathing patterns and try to correct. Anemia can make you feel SOB, dizzy, weak.

Have you seen your obstetrician?

I had problems with my iron even before my pregnancy and my asthma came back with my pregnancy which give me shortness of breath.. try keeping the temperature cool in the house, use diffuser and put eucalyptus or lavender essential oil drops in the diffuser. That helped me a lot while I was pregnant. Do some breathing exercises that helps too.. my iron count was on the low side but not as low as is normally. Not losing any blood through pms actually helped with not losing iron. Hope this helps.

But don’t use a diffuser if you have a cat - especially not with lavender or eucalyptus.

I don’t have any pets so I wouldn’t know that. Ayesha make sure to follow what Penny says.

When my reflux is not under control shortness of breath follows. I get a tightening feeling in abdomen/breast bone area. It can definitely make you anxious. Gerd/reflux can come with age. I take nexium otc 20 in morning , 45 min before breakfast and Ranitidine otc 2 hours after lunch, and gaviscon as needed ( you can try Tums or rolaids) . Trident spearmint gum and Simethicone otc really help with the bloating . Keep a close eye on trigger foods. I stay away from coffee , chocolate , citrus, dairy and gluten (wheat flour). 5 years GERD. Hope this helps


  1. I was diagnosed with COPD 5 years ago and was taking Spiriva and Advair plus nose sprays to slow down progression. My symptoms have always been shortness of breath, and dizziness. I am a 54 year old male. the Spiriva wasn’t really working and I could not tolerate them for long due to severe side effects, so this year our family doctor started me on Natural Herbal Gardens COPD Herbal mixture, We ordered their COPD herbal treatment after reading alot of positive reviews, i am happy to report with the help of Natural Herbal Garden natural herbs I have been able to reverse my symptoms using herbs, my symptoms totally declined over a 9 weeks use of the Natural Herbal Gardens COPD natural herbal formula. My COPD is totally reversed! Their official web page is www . naturalherbalgardens . com After the herbal treatment I also finally was able to give up smoking after 20 years. I ‘m thankful to nature
