During the first tri of this pg (but not with my last pg) I had horrible intestinal gas and some diarrhea. There were many days my entire abdomen was so cramped I couldn't walk very well, it was an incredibly painful chore just to walk to the bathroom! At night I'd lay in bed and feel the gas just moving all around, and it was loud! It sounded like a big angry monster in there and felt like he was searching for a way out, but never finding the right hole! I've never had trouble passing gas in my life, but that stuff just wouldn't come out! I have IBS, so I thought maybe the hormones were aggrivating it. Anyway, I'm fine if I get my metamucil 3x a day, take digestive enzymes with dinner (and sometimes lunch), take acidolpholis, get lots of water, and stay away from problem foods (esp sugar and white flour).
Hope you feel better soon! I tell you, its really unpleasant to have this problem once your baby is up to your ribs and your entire digestive system is compressed into your back... so take care of yourself!
Also, incase you aren't already, make sure to steer clear of coffee, any thing containing caffiene, carbonated beverages, and alcohol!
Holly, eternally in love with Kolby, Raising Juelie Anise (10y), Behnjamin Shen (6y), and Coen Syaoran (4y). Expecting June 2013
