What is obstructive sleep apnea during pregnancy?

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a condition that is part of a spectrum of breathing abnormalities that is common during pregnancy, due to changes that develop in your body. Known as sleep-disordered breathing (SDB), the spectrum includes simple snoring on the mild end and OSA on the severe end. In between are varying amounts of resistance to the flow of air through your upper airways while you sleep. OSA is the severe end of the range because it is characterized by episodes in which your breathing pauses for some moments, impairing the ability to obtain quality sleep.
