I had shortness of breath off and on throughout my 2nd pregnancy and found that forcing myself to get out and walk or doing yoga really helped - after a week or so of doing that I felt better. Also, try to do some deep breathing excercises where you breathe all the way out each time. The first trimester is usually the worst with the breathing due to hormones, but if you find it continues (as mine did), the above helped me.
