Welcome to HCM forum

In third trimester of pregnancy there is a pressure of baby on the diaphrgam so you feel these symptoms

Just relax but do not neglect it , it is better to get yourself examined by physician as well as your gynaecologist

It can be due to gastritis as well so take an antacid

Best wishes
Take care
