I am 7 weeks pregnant and SUFFERING from severe gas and bloating. The pain is uncomfortable to say the least. It's in my lower abdomen and stretches to my back - but unfortunately doesn't seem to be making it's way out.

Are there any solutions out there that can help without harming my fetus?

I am 15 weeks pregnant and SUFFERING from severe gas and bloating as well so I can relate to your concern. I have been reading about gas and pregnancy and found some diet tips that may reduce these symptoms. It is indicated that foods such as beans, cabbage, broccoli, asparagus, pasta, potatoes, and soft drinks are very often the reason. So maybe try to monitor what you are eating and identify what foods cause it. Good luck

I have the same problem, and I agree, it's REALLY uncomfortable!!! My doctor's official list of medications that are okay during pregnancy says that you can take Mylicon, Gas-X (Simethicone), or Phazyme for gas and Tylenol for pain. I have read that Gas-X is a category C drug, which some doctors might object to, but this booklet with these medications listed is given to every pregnant woman in this practice, so at least these 8 doctors believe it is perfectly safe!

Drinking plenty of water might also help get things moving along. And of course, avoid foods that trigger the gas, even if it really limits your diet temporarily. Sorry if this is too much info., but my mother suggested that if you are constipated or having trouble passing the gas, rocking forward and backward when you're sitting on the toilet can help.

Good luck to you!
