We just found out we're pregnant, first baby. (I did post in the teen forum also) I've been having really really bad gas pains it's really quite strange. Is this normal? It seems to move from my stomach to my chest and down to my intestines again. I can feel air bubbles in my tummy...what in the world? It's very uncomfortable, what can I do? Secondly, I am cramping moderately. I've felt like this for a week or two, it feels a lot like period pains. We thought we'd have a period, but instead we've got a baby! Is this normal? It's not all the time, but when it is, it's usually on my left side, higher up. Sometimes it's on the opposite side, also higher up. It's not where a uterus should be, if I recall correctly. What's up with that? We're heading to the doctor today or tomorrow to discuss our options. But in the meantime I get painful bursts of cramping and very uncomfortable bloating/gas! Even passing the gas doesn't help, it seems unending!!! Is there a reason my pain is so weirdly high up? And on both sides? Twins runs in my family - every female along my mom's side has had twins and I was a twin also. My dad's side has a few cases of multiples but nothing in a pattern. Could I be having twins and something is weirdly wrong?
