Hi There

I understand your concern for your daughter and i wanna tell you that this is pretty normal in 3rd trimester. Her SOB is due to a fully developed fetus in her womb which is also compressing over the lungs causing breathing difficulty.

Its ok if you wait till morning.

I wish her good health
