I am pregnant and have had one previous pregnancy which ended when i lost my baby at 22 weeks and from the very beginning of each pregnancy (the first 2 weeks) I had extreme shortness of breath on minimal exertion, for example walking a very short distance or getting dressed can have me huffing and puffing and exercise e.g gentle swimming which I have no problem with when not pregnant has me out of breath for about an hour, so I don't exercise when pregnant. I never had any problem breathing when not pregnant. My GP thought I have a kind of pregnancy asthma and put me on inhalers which help a little, but since I'm newly diagnosed with aps I'm wondering now could it be related. My consultant who tested me for aps didn't seem to think the two were related though. I'm on aspirin and heparin injections for about a week now, I still feel breathless but I feel as though it's improved a little bit. Just wondering if anyone else had this?
