Thanks Zona. It's definitely gas though. And true, I am definitely having "girl cramps" too. It's terrible. Sometimes I distinctly have a uterine cramp, sometimes it's distinctly a gas pain, and sometimes I can't tell what in the WORLD it is!
A doc friend thinks it was either my liver or gallbladder that was hurting last night. Since then, I have pain everywhere under my belly button. A few times it's been a strong sting instead of crampy. I'm baffled.
Oh, and I'm pushing water since you mentioned it. I do think I was dehydrated. Glad you pointed it out.
I had gas pain too after my D&C at 11 weeks. I had the procedure on a Thursday and then pain from Saturday-Monday. On Monday I had my first BM post-procedure and I felt a lot better. Strangely, I didn't really have any uterine cramping.
It's so interesting to find someone else with the same symptom. Also,
Gas pain is common after anesthesia, because it slows the bowels.
I believe fuid is used to flush the uterus. It is used during other surgeries to remove blood so the surgeon can see better what they are doing. it's not unusual to have fluid leakage for a while.
