Pregnancy or something more?
Lately, at times when I’m trying to sleep, I’ll fall asleep for a minute or so (maybe less) and I’ll immediately wake up with my pulse racing and practically gasping for air…essentially trying to catch my breath. This has happened while laying on both my right and left side. I never sleep on my back.
When it happens, I typically will have it repeat for about half an hour (of trying to go back to sleep) or I just give up.
Curtis did tell me that I quit breathing the other morning while sleeping. He said I’d hold my breath and then gasp to catch it back. We told my doc and she contributed it to the babies and my diaphragm unable to fully extend.
I’ve never had sleep apnea or anything like that. Is this normal? Or is this something I need to stress to my doc? I am HATING this feeling and the fact that I’m losing sleep over it.
