Couldn’t find anything on search since “gas” is only three letters.
Background: I am about 3 months pregnant, and I have been experiencing a lot of gas. It doesn’t seem to change with what I eat, it’s just fairly constant. I also experienced this in my last pregnancy.
The last three days I have had horrible gas pains. It seems that no matter what I do, I cannot pass the gas. I end up with this incredible pressure just above the pelvic region (one night it seemed to be pressing fairly hard on my c-section scar). Sometimes it is so bad I can’t move.
The pain is not constant. It comes on suddenly and lasts for a minute, then fades. A minute or two later it will come back. It seems to happen mostly in the evening and at night. It does not go away when I change positions, but if I try to stand up it gets MUCH MUCH worse.
The first night that this happened, it actually felt a lot like labor pains, but there was something different about it that I couldn’t put my finger on.
Anyway, my MIL told me not to worry about it, so I’m not worried. But I need to figure out how to alleviate this pain once it comes on. It really hurts. Last night I promised my dh that I’d go buy him a soda, and I couldn’t even get up off of the floor.
