Bloating while pregnant

Common Questions and Answers about Bloating while pregnant


Avatar f tn Greens can also cause bloating, though (such as broccoli, spinach and green beans). When you get bloated, do you drink milk? While pregnant milk can be harder to digest causing bloating. This is my second pregnancy and noticed I was super bloated towards the end of the day. I cut out dairy and it's helped out ALOT. Also my midwife suggested lactaid (the pills) when I get uncomfortable. She said it was perfectly safe while pregnant. Try cutting out dairy to see if this helps first. Good luck!
Avatar n tn Hi, i have just found out 2 weeks ago that i'm pregnant. My test showed i was 5 weeks, and i recently just been for a scan and was showing a black shadow in the uterus but unable to rule out being eptopic at this stage because they could not see anything? I'm going back in another week for a scan but concerned because i look about 5 months pregnant i am really bloated and even had to invest in some maternity trousers for work. Is this normal?
Avatar f tn The high levels of progesterone while you are pregnant cause gas and bloating. The progesterone relaxes the smooth muscle tissue of the digestive tract, slowing digestion and leading to gas and bloating. There are a few things that you can do to help with the bloating. Avoid large meals, eat smaller more frequent meals. Avoid carbonated drinks. Finally, exercise, like walking, will help speed digestion. Congratulations on your pregnancy! Hope this helps.
327369 tn?1326123508 Curious about bloating.....if you were not bloated prior to taking thyroid meds but become extremely bloated about 1-2 weeks after taking them....what causes that? This has happened several times to me (when being place on thyroid meds). Bloating does not exist prior to meds and went away when I went off meds????? Dr. said it was from being slightly hypo but I do not believe that and know that is was not like that weeks and weeks before when levels were actually higher! Any ideas???
329994 tn?1301666848 For the last 3 years, have had extreme bloating, not PMS bloating, but bloating and looking like I am 9 months pregnant. I eat very little and bloat immediately. I bloat no matter what type of food I eat, it doesn't matter. No one can find the answer. Last summer, I had an emergency appendectomy. While performing that operation, they noticed that my small intestine was blocked, so they took out a foot of my intestine.
448723 tn?1301458558 I am having worse nausea, headaches and bloating than I ever had while pregnant. My stomach had gone down completely after the miscarriage, and now it looks just as big (if not bigger) than before. For all those that haven't taken Progesterone before: It stops bleeding by tricking your body into thinking it is pregnant. When you stop the medication, 2-4 days later you get a period. It is getting hard not to hope I am pregnant.

1769279 tn?1315018920 I was on a very restricted allergy diet for a while, including no wheat, and while I didn't get to eat anything good, I felt amazing. Now I eat just about everything again, but I limit breads & pastas. I didn't see the 9 mo part at first...measure yourself before & after! I hope you are exaggerating a lot, but if not...def call your dr!
Avatar f tn It is all in natures design to help our bodies make the most of what we can keep down while we are pregnant. It will go away, watch the salt, don't cut it out, but don't over do it. If you find yourself constipated, add some fiber.
Avatar f tn I was recently diagnosed with Gastritis, IBS-C. The bloating and belching never stops! Ive been into medications for a while but I quit. my belly is bulging and heavy. I have never felt normal again ever since.

Avatar f tn I have had an abdominal problem for a while now and I have been to the doctor a few times and had several tests done and they still are not sure what is wrong. Lately every night I have been getting really REALLY bloated to where my entire abdomin is rock solid and I can't stand up without it pulling and it is really painful. It gets to the point where I look pregnant. Has this every happened to anybody? What could this be from or mean? How can I get it to settle?
Avatar n tn Has anyone on this site ever experienced stomach bloating ? I just assumed it was attributable to MS. The other annoying thing I have been dealing with is paresthesia mostly in groin area ... if you couple that with the lower back pressure/pain that I get from time to time, would suggest sacral nerves are affected perhaps?
Avatar n tn i have done quite a bit of research, and i think what a lot of us are suffering from is something called Functional Abdominal Bloating. it is sort of like IBS without any of the other IBS symptoms; just the bloating and distention. i recommend you check it out and see if it fits your symptoms. the literature seems to recognize three reasons for these functional problems: dysmotility, visceral hypersensitivity, and some kind of disconnect between the brain and the gut.
Avatar f tn I have had a lot of abdominal bloating, but I also get a feeling of fullness/heaviness higher up, closer to my stomach. Has anyone else experienced this? Also, I tend to get a shooting/stabbing pain near the ovary where the cyst is located. Many times that pain radiates to my rectum. Is that normal? Could it be that the cyst is putting pressure on other organs? That seems hard to believe since it is only about 3cm which seems small to me.
Avatar f tn It bothered me the entire time I took it. I gradually had bloating, distention of the stomach and tingling, numbness and a 'cold' sensation started later on. This hasn't gone away and has only improved about 30% since taking probiotics and eating a lot of fermented foods and coconut yogurt with live cultures. The Kevita probiotic drinks help the most. I have a 'lazy colon' and it's usually challenging to get the urge to have a bowel movement but now it's even worse!
Avatar n tn Hi! I was woundering is it ok to get a massage while pregnant? I've never had one before and my back muscles have been realy sore, I thought a massage might help. I had back and neck problems before I got pregnant but now it seems to be more frequent and bothersome.
Avatar n tn okay so i thought i was pregnant i had all the signs, nausea headaches cramping bloating sore breast and everything i mean the whole nine yards i am now 3 weeks late on my period 2 weeks ago i took a test and it came up negative and i have now started to bleed is there any possibility that i am still pregnant? i was kind of hoping i was and maybe thats why i thought i was i dont know can some one please help me????
Avatar f tn So ever since I was teenager I've always bloated after I ate but after I got married almost four years ago it started to get worse and I realized it wasn't normal. My symptoms have always been bloating after meals and constantly burping. The last couple of years they have worsened to my stomach constantly being bloated and hard as a rock. The burping has always been an issue. I wake up in the morning and I look normal but as the day goes on I get bloated and it gets harder.
Avatar f tn I went with the doctor she went too and he is the type that doesn't like weight gain in the first trimester and he applys strict healthy diets. My friends daughter is now one and healthy and she was petite while pregnant. I wanna do the same but even if the doctor days it's fine idk.
Avatar n tn Also when you first get on to a new birth control you are supposed to use another birth control method for at least a month because the pulls need to build up in your system before they are effective, so she could have just recently gotten pregnant!!! Gas and bloating are definitely early pregnancy symptoms so is say she should be getting a test because being on birth control while pregnant is dangerous!!! Good luck. ..
