    I thought I had it! I wasnt sure what it was to be honest, but bought some Rennie Deflatine mints.....if I ever get really bad pains in my belly I'll take one just in case, and it does work!!

    Try and avoid it while at work/on the train though!!

    I've always suffered from this. Unfortunately, the activated charcoal that I used to take before pregnancy is on the do not take list while pregnant. I've heard that peppermint can help. Tea or mints may make it better.

    I had this according to the nurse practitioner, it would start and get more intense and then peak after 20 minutes when it would be impossible to do any work then completely disappear! The only thing that helped was when I felt it coming on I would eat something and it would completely prevent it. Nurse said eating may have kick started my digestive system. One day it disappeared and never came back, hope yours does too xxxx

    I had this, I had wind that felt like it was under my ribs. I was given wind-eze. Worked a treat and did a burp like you wouldnt believe!

    ive not had this, but, if you get trapped wind try kneeling on the floor, then bending down so our head is low on the pillow so your making a almost squished 'z' shape but with your feet on floor, like basically stick ur ass in the air... see if that helps, the air should go 'up' which is in the direction of your butt. hahaha! that sounds funny, but it works

    When I get it, I jump up & down a few times & that seems to loosen it!
