I'm 8wks pregnant & sometimes feel short of breath, usually with stair climbing. No feeling faint, just feel aware of need to take deep breaths. Normal?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: No

That should not happen just because you are pregnant, you need to tell your OB so you can be referred for a cardiac and or pulmonary workup, and better to do now then wait till it could potential to get worse and you need to know if everything is normal or not.
