I know this seems like a silly question, but I am 10 weeks pregnant and I am so bloated and gassy. I am swollen and my hands and feet are tight. I don't know what to think. I am having such bad gas that wont pass. I am taking gas x and rolaids for gas and taking warm baths and nothing is helping!!! Can anyone give me some advice. Is this normal this early? I can sleep because of the gas pain. What do you think?

Trapped gas, what I call it, causes terrible discomfort..here are 2 products...Ovol 180 and peppermint tea..both safe during pregnancy.The swelling is something I would contact your doctor for.

Drink lots of water to help with the swelling in your hands and feet. As for the gas, since you are already taking Gas X and it isn't working, I suggest to call your doctor for advise. Good luck!

Thanks so much Kate! I will try these things. I hope they work. :)

LIke lilly said warm baths should be avoided, sorry I missed that in your question.It is harmful to the fetus to raise your core body temperature.

you can take baths when you are pregnant. It will not cause you to have an infection. You just cant take a HOT bath because it can harm the baby. The only time you may have to avoid baths at all during pregnancy is if you already have a yeast infection. Also during that time you will need to avoid bubble baths and things like that. as for your gas problem peppermint tea really does work.

Just a comment on the bath thing. I'm a bath person, only! I love my hot baths. I'm working on my 3rd child. I have never stopped taking baths, it is relaxing to me.
