Having breathlessness after delivery.

Doctor, I have delivered my baby 4 months ago. Now I am feeling shortness of breath and breathlessness after delivery while lying down supine. I had these symptoms in 7th month of pregnancy. Also my weight is increasing day by day. Tell me if these are the symptoms of heart failure.
