Im 40 weeks pregnant with my first baby. So, there are many things im not sure is normal are not. The main thing is that i just started getting this feeling in my chest . It feels like someone is sqeezing it and its kinda hard to breathe.

the possible causes of your problem could be,
-as the baby grows it will push the diaphragm upwards which will lead to difficulty in breathing.
-around the time of delivery breast will be containing milk which may be the cause of heaviness in chest.
-there will be increased blood circulation during pregnancy putting more pressure on heart that may be responsible for squeezing sensation.
all these are normally seen in term pregnancy,
if you are feeling trouble with these better to consult the doctor and get examined.
take care.
