Possibly: It's very easy to feel winded at 33 weeks of pregnancy. A doctor would want to make sure that you don't have any conditions like asthma that could be exacerbating. It's also normal to burp a lot more towards the end of pregnancy. Reflux is often described as a burning or pain like sensation just below the breastbone. Zantac (ranitidine) or Pepcid can help.
