Hi all, I'm a newbie on here and newbie mummy to be! smile

I just wonder if others have had this problem (most probably) and if you have some real good remedies for massive bloating!!

It is just so uncomfortable, i was at work today at at 12ish after i ate a wrap with egg mayo my belly just pretty much erupted, it got so bloated so fast and was so uncomfortable for hours its now 9.20pm and its just starting to calm down. Its horrible as i literally can't do anything to relive it, theres no gas, i can't actually get anything out apart from wee. I've never experienced such uncomfortable bloating, i've always had it through eating white bread and such things but this was unbearable! I've been suffering on and off the past couple of weeks but today was hard work. Felt like i fast forwarded to past my due date with triplets lol

Any advice greatly received, thanks in advance xx

It's normal, unfortunately. Embrace the elasticated waistband.

Try to go for walks as much as you can. I was horribly bloated in my first trimester and found a walk at lunchtime and in the evening (making DH come with me for company!) helped a lot.

Peppermint tea is good as well smile I find it even better if I have it before I eat rather than after.

I had more of a belly at 8 weeks than at 15 weeks due to the dreaded bloat. Definitely walking helps but also Rennie Deflatine

Boots' pharmacist recommended WindSetlers after checking that they were safe when pregnant. They help very quickly.

It will go soon don't worry but as others have said walking really helps
