I am so, so, so gassy. There is no one else I can talk about this with. There are times when I can't tell if my uterus is getting bigger or I am just majorly bloated and distended.

The End.

It kinda goes with the territory. I remember when pregnant with my son asking a girlfriend if she was gassy with her two. She got all embarrassed and said NO! I though, sheesh, what's the big deal. I think its probably that sluggish digestion that goes with pregnancy. Everything sits around fermenting longer. Yeah, where else could you talk about this stuff?

After going through pregnancy and birth and nursing (esp., I think, nursing twins or other tandem nursing) doesn't one lose all sense of embarrassment where one's body & its various products are concerned? With friends, anyway? For cryin' out loud -- I can't believe your friend was embarrassed!

I am not having the gas problem, though.

Yup, me too. It happened with my last two also, but then after a few weeks it goes away. (I was so tempted to say 'it passes' instead of 'it goes away').

Okay so I'll go ahead and admit that I'm usually an extremely gassy person (slight wheat addiction) and when pregnant it just gets worse. Actually with #1 he was moving for almost 6 weeks before I realized it. I thought it was gas. How sad is that?

This morning I was finally gassy. I've been very bad this last week about fiber intake and I finally had a bowl of my wheat germ-added oatmeal yesterday.

Yep, the hard bump of my uterus is definitely uterus not bloating.

I'm very gassy and have been for about two weeks. There's really nothing to curb. I say let it out if needs to come out.

Not something I talk about irl, but feel comfortable on here Though if my friend asked me about it I would at least be honest. And yes, very gassy here, too - just let it out!
