Anybody else having terrible bloating and gas, with cramps? My abdomen gets so distended and painful in the evenings especially. I just don't know what to do about it, how to get rid of the pain, or better yet, prevent it altogether. I'm so miserable.
Thanks for bringing this up. I belch like a methane factory -otherwise the pain/discomfort keeps me awake and cranky. Sweetie keeps telling me that I don't have to say "Excuse me," after each one/each series, but I'm trying to cling to the last vestiges of ettiquette. We have agreed, though, better upstairs than down.
Yoga can help, too. Sitting on bent knees (butt on ankles) and slowly turning from side to side is a gentle way to get your gut moving. I really like "Step-By-Step Yoga For Pregnancy"
by Wendy Teasdill. She talks specifically about relieving some discomforts of pregnancy with different yoga positions.
