In brief: Get it checked out

If you do not have a cold, or wheezing to explain it, see your doctor. A failing heart has a hard time with the increased blood coming back to the heart when you lie flat.
Sometimes obesity causes a problem by applying pressure to lungs. No matter what, not breathing right when at rest is not normal. See your doctor.
