Last night I woke up with a start about an hour after falling asleep and was really gasping for breath. It's like I'd not been breathing which had shocked me into waking up. I've never had this before or heard of it. Just wondering if anyone ever experienced this? It was very scary and hoping it won't become a regular thing!

I've had this is pregnancy. I put it down to sleep apnea. I think it's when iv been laid on my back too, so don't know if I'm squashing something or what?

I have at times of real stress. It's really scary so you have my sympathy.

I have done this about 3-4 times during my life so far, it's quite scary at the time.

Thanks for your replies. glad it's not regular for any of you. do think it's probably a bit of stress plus my body adjusting to the idea of being pregnant. made me scared to go back to sleep!

It could be a pregnancy thing, I was told by my mw it can be pretty common. I only get it when pg. try sleeping on your side. Since I had to stop sleeping on my back it hasn't happened

I've had it happen, nothing to do with pregnancy. It scares me.
