Stomach pain after eating?


Hey ladies, we're 25 weeks now and for all I know this could be normal, either way I'm sure it's nothing to worry about, but thought I would ask!

After everything I eat I get pains in my stomach, and the only thing I can compare it to are pancreatitis pains, but higher up. They only last for a couple of minutes and then it mellows out to a dull ache. I've been trying to eat smaller portion of lighter food but it's the same, grr!

I have had my gall bladder removed because of pancreatitis but I haven't had pain from food (other than high fat food) since before the removal, so while it could be my dodgy tum it just doesn't seem likely.

At first I thought it could be braxton hicks, but it's after every meal so seems more food related! Then again I don't know much about braxton hicks, is there a link between eating and them I don't know about?

Anyone else?

I have this a lot!

I first started getting it when I was pregnant with my third daughter, then didn't really feel it with my son. After I had him though, started getting the same pain after eating certain foods and had to start being careful not to eat things together - like bananas and coffee in the same day. Or white bread and coffee. Sometimes apples upset my stomach too.

I had it pretty much under control, but it's flared up big time with this pregnancy. Pretty much every time I eat my stomach hurts. I find that drinking loads of water usually helps, so I am assuming that it helps move everything through more efficiently?

The docs really have never had an answer for me, saying maybe it's food intolerances or allergies that cropped up while I was pregnant and never truly went away, or possibly IBS.

I am getting this heaps at the moment!
I am very tender and bloated all the time I eat just under my ribs and the pain radiates through to my back. My mum said that it could be my gallbladder but I am hoping its just another pregnancy joy!
I have reduced the amounts of food I eat as I am scared of the pain, but then it makes me worry that I am not eating enough for the baby. I am still not back to my pre pregnancy weight yet either!
I have an appointment to see the dr next week and am also seeing my midwife so I will bring it up then, hopefully I will get an answer as I am dreading the thought of going through this for the rest of the pregnancy!

Hope you get relief from this too

Thanks ladies! I hadn't thought of it being a specific food because I eat so varied but I'm now going to keep an eye out in case it's something like dairy, which I eat a lot of, lol.

My friend just gave birth to her son and now she is having to have her gall bladder removed because of a similiar pain, but I don't have one, lol. Although I will say the surgery for gall bladder removal was much better than I thought it would be, 2 days later I was home eating medicinal maltesers, hehe.

I've also been worried about not eating enough for the baby, although I am taking vitamins so at least that's something!

I am a huge water drinker anyway, so I'll try and drink a little extra and see if it helps, if it doesn't I'll try drinking a little less and see if it's due to bloating. It's all trial and error, lol.

I'm about to have lunch...wish me luck..
