Pregnant, have weakness in legs, high heart rate, breathlessness post breakfast that lasts for hours. Normal?

Hi Doctor, My name is Sally I am 36 years old and 25 weeks pregnant with my first baby. I have noticed that after having breakfast every morning about 15mins later I feel extremely weak in my legs. My heart starts to pump harder than usual and I get breathless . This lasts for about an hour or so then I m good for the rest of the day. Is this something to be concerned about or is it part of being pregnant. Thanks..

usually in pregnancy some amount of breathlessness and weakness are common which will increase with progression of gestation,
the blood volume increases during pregnancy so the heart will pump more volume,
anyhow if your symptoms are creating any trouble better to consult gynecologist and get general checkup once including blood pressure, blood sugar, ultrasound if needed ECG.
take care.
