    I just had to leave work because of it. Went in for 6am and on the way there I got pains so I took a couple Gas-X ... half hour later it got so much worse. Looked at the label and Gas-X chewables have Sorbitol which I am sensitive to and actually CAUSES gas for me. *duh*

    I turned pale and sweaty and had the most horrible stabbing pains. Work actually sent me home because I couldn't stand up straight. I called my OB and they said to try Phazyme as it doesn't have Sorbitol. But I can't take it today because I've already had 3 chewable gas-x and one softgel. My head cashier was putting ice packs all over my stomach because she swears it helps. And it actually helped at bit.

    Ugh it's the worst pain ever..

    Right!? I get it so bad my bump grows to look like I'm 12 months! HAHA.
    Seriously, Hallie couldn't even move today, when I finally began "relieving" (ehe) myself she started kicking. Poor baby was probably squished

    If you've got trapped wind, try getting down on all fours, bend your arms and keep your bum in the air .. so your head is lower than your bum. It works :D

    I get it really bad anytime I get gas. I usually have to curl up into a ball to relieve some of the pain. It is all related to my IBS. Sometimes gets so bad I feel like I need to throw up. I wish I had a suggestion of how to make it better for you, but I can't even relieve it myself, have no idea how. No medicines work for me so usually just have to wait it through.

    It really really is the worst pain ever! I get horrible stabs and feel like i'm going to be sick if i don't get relief, then EVERYTHING starts hurting. I got some Phazyme which I'm going to try next time I have a 'spell' haha.

    I usually lay on my belly and lift one leg up while keeping the other straight, but... being preggers, that position is now easier said than done :(
