Really Painful Bloated Tummy - Worried??

Hi, I am 7wks pregnant and have had bad nausea for the last week (no sickness). I am eating little and often to ensure that I help the sickness although I really do not feel like it!

The last couple of days from luncthime on, I have had a really bloated painful tummy, worse in the eve after dinner. It is like my tummy has been blown up and is full of air. Feels like I need to let it all out (sorry TMI) but it is not easy to! I can feel like a bubbling effect inside, popping? I do not know what to do to help it.

Is this a normal sign of pregnancy? I have no idea.

I am still on the progesterone pessaries which have always made me a bit bloated but not as bad as this so I am worrieds.

Any ideas????

Jess,

If it makes you feel better, so is my wife's tummy. She is like a wind factory right now, but she says it is really hard to let it out.

The only difference is that our clinic stopped the pessaries two days before our bfp.

Fingers crossed everything works out for you.

Regards

Thanks Kaborex, that is reassuring to know I am not alone!

I am finding this really difficult at the moment, what with the ivf, pain from EC then period pains for the last 4wks and now constant nausea and bloatedness!!!!

Thanks. Worried as she is now complaining of AF type symptoms.

Everything will be alright in the end. We are praying for everyone on this forum daily. It has to work.

I had really bad AF pains from EC up until last weekend!! I was so scared as I really did not expect them but the clinic said it is common so not to worry unless you are doubled over in pain and they are sharp stabbing pains.

Mine have passed although I still get the odd twinge every now and then during the day.

I am sure it will be ok.

It's pretty common to bloat and feel icky, progesterone slows down your gut which means everything has more time in your stomach and I think it ferments to a certain extent. Because you're taking progesterone you're probably suffering more than someone with a natural pregnancy as your levels will be higher. At 7 weeks my progesterone level was over 300 but the natural level is somewhere around the 60 mark so everything ground to a halt. However, you'll be please to know it does get better.

Then comes back in the 3rd tri, I can't remember the last time I didn't burp on a 5 minute basis :D

Hi Bry,

Thanks for your message. Nice to know I am not alone with this horrid bloatedness. The pessaries make you feel crap anyway but this is even worse than it ever has been before eh!

What with the nausea and this, I am feeling so crappy....

How is your sickness, is it getting better? I hope so.

I'm so glad I've just read your message I feel exactly the same I'm fine when I get up in the morning but in the evening I keep thinking I might explode (ok bit OTT).

Nice to know it sounds like the pessaries as it isn't listed as a side-effect.
