Painful Gas

Has anyone experienced painful gas pain. I don't mean to be gross, buts it's like you have to pass gas, but nothing comes out. I have been bloated since week 8. I am now 16 weeks. Yesterday I was in so much pain I thought something was wrong from the cramping of the gas. I went to the doctor and he said everything was ok. However this morning the pain is less severe (I am on Maloxx) but it is still there. Curious to know if anyone out there is in the same boat and what you do to get relief. Thanks,

I have been there! And once in a while I'll get a day full of trapped gas. It makes me miserable. I have taken Gas X, which seemed to help. Also, walking helps and yoga has really helped me, too. But sometimes it's just stubborn. Hang in there, I know how you feel.

Hi Janice. I am 15 weeks and I have had bad gas since I found out at 5 weeks. It's only gotten worse. But I find it's mostly after I eat, and it depends on what I eat. Anything with beans, like Minestrone soup, is the worst. Also anything heavy or greasy. And whenever I eat something with sweetener or drink pop. It's awful.

Hi girls, I'm wondering now if I am having gas pains. My prenatal vitamins make me pretty constipated (sorry tmi) and I have been havinng really mild cramps here and there....nothing serious, just a wave of them for like 10 seconds and then it goes away. Could this be gas???? i am 16 weeks

Thanks ladies. Jean- Is it safe to take Gas X when pregnant?

My doctor okay'd it after 12 weeks. But call yours and get her/his opinion. The online research I did said it's safe also, in the second trimester.
