is the feeling inside the chest or outside?
is this your first pregnancy?
are you having trouble swallowing or is this more a breathing issue?
so it's just a sensation in your chest and doesn't affect your breathing or swallowing?
and how long has it been there?
have you ever had a blood clot in your legs or lungs before?
any problems with your previous pregnancies?
so indigestion is very common as pregnancies progress
okay thanks for that info
the key is to consider dangerous possibilities
you don't describe any dangerous symptoms so the only dangerous possibility I could think of would be a blood clot in the lung... quite common in prengancy, but usually with a history of clots in the leg
so this is unlikely with you
and I think a common thing like reflux (indigestion) is very probable
when do you have your next appointment with your doctor?
are you taking anything now to try to help with this?
so it would be safe and reasonable to try some Tums or Rolaids to see if this helps and then discuss this with your doctor in two weeks
reasons to go sooner would be chest pain, fever, productive cough...
but this sounds like one of those little irritations of a normal pregnancy
