Trapped wind again.

Had to got to the hospital on Friday evening. I keep getting pain just unde rmy right boob which I was sure was trapped wind. Anyway on Friday it got so bad that I couldn't walk properly so I went to see the GP. He was great. He was very thorough and got the doppler out to check babies heart beat which was fine. Then he said, of course we need to check that the placenta isn't detached!!!! What! So he sent me up to the hospital. They were also great. They didn't check the heartbeat again because the baby was moving fine but the doctor took a really thorough history and examined me. She said that its just wind and not a collapsed lung or broken rib or any of the other million and one things I had been imagining! The pain is also nowhere near the placenta so theres nothing wrong there.

Anyway, the pain is still there. It comes on around lunch time and gets steadily worse over the afternoon. Its worse when I'm upright and better when I lie down. I've been taking peppermint cordial (which is disgusting) as advised by the doctor a the hospital but it doesn't seem to be making much difference. Anyone got any tips?

Edited to say sorry for waffling!

Have you tried massage? A gentle abdominal rub (with some nice oil0can sometimes help to shift it. How much fluid are yuo drinking? You need lots and lots of water to keep things "moving".

They can give you somestuff to help ...makes all wind come together in one so easier to expel, they give it before C sections so not sure if ok wiht baby..you will need to check...or why dont you ask doc if ok to take those otc things for it I think they are called Rennies Deflatine and Setlers Windeze (they say both are suitable in pregnancy)...I know how you feel I get it regularily around my waist area...It is very painful...I drink pepermint tea which I think is more palatable than the cordial

I was going to say pepermint tea too - I found this better than gaviscon. Also I used to do a yoga move to get rid of it... I've searched for it in my bookcase but can't find it (sorry not much help!) but I think it involved lying on your back and bringing each leg into your 'chest' very slowly.

I was told that ginger also helps digestion aswell as peppermint, although peppermint is good for heartburn as it neutralises the acid. If you have a stirfry or anything add a little bit of ginger into it :))

Primrose, the move that you mentioned I found on the internet for baby massage to help with Lols colic, it worked :))

Just been to speak to a pharmacist. She had a very strong Spanish accent and all I managed to understand was that I can't take deflatine or wind-eze (even thouhg they have the same active ingredient as infacol) and the only other word I could get out of her was aniseed. Have got some pepermint tea though which is a lot nicer than the cordial.
Sam, will try some ginger tonight.

Mrs J

I would check with your surgery because both those brands claim that they are suitable for pg women and believe me these companies ALWAYS err on the side of caution in these things.......SPanish pharmasist doesnt sound too helpful

'Each Rennie Deflatine® tablet contains 25mg of Simethicone, an active ingredient which breaks down the tiny bubbles of gas that cause the bloated feeling and gurgling noises of trapped wind, forming fewer, larger bubbles which are more easily expelled or absorbed in the intestine.

Simethicone is non-systemic, which means it isn’t absorbed into your blood stream, making it suitable to take even during pregnancy. You should consult your doctor or pharmacist before using any remedies during pregnancy.'

Thanks Tinkerbell, I will phone our usual pharmacist who speaks English in a way I can understand!

Do you think this means I will have a colicky baby?

I don't know TBH mrsJ.. I had awful heartburn and DD did have colic, luckily for us it only lasted a few weeks, with its peak only lasting a few days, but I'm not sure the 2 are actually related ?(

Wind and heartburn were my ONLY pregnancy symptoms and my DD was no more windy than any other TBH (I think the majority of babies are a bit windy up to 12 months due to their imature digestive system). Everyone kept telling me it was a sign of a hairy baby!!! DD was quite hairy too :D

I KNOW, it says on the pack in big letters 'safe to take in pregnancy'. Bl**dy stupid pharmacist, I could have had some at lunch time yesterday and not felt c**p all afternoon!! (sorry my language deteriorates when I get cross)

Not really sure, Tink. I keep taking them anyway but am also trying to eat a bit less fat which may also be helping. I think what I need is a hour a day after lunch to lie on my back and trump a lot! not sure how I'd ask for that at work - can I have an hours farting time please?

The peppermint tea seems to help except that by the time I drink it, its gone cold.
