  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    In your second trimester, pregnancy hormones stimulate your brain to increase the frequency and depth of your breaths, allowing you to take in more oxygen for your growing baby-to-be. Those hormones also swell the capillaries in your respiratory tract and relax the muscles of the lungs and bronchial tubes, making you feel like you're sucking wind. But in some cases it can be a symptom of anemia also. Stomach pain can be due to stretching of ligaments. If it increases and is associated with cramps, spotting or discharge per vagina, consult your doctor. Otherwise there is nothing to worry.
    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back to us with follow-up questions.
