Only about 7weeks pregnant but just can't stop burping. What is going on? I feel almost permanently nauseaus (expected) but what wasn't expected is massive giant burps all the time... is this just me?

Nope not just you its burping central here too! I'm 7+2 and have been burping for the last couple of weeks and generally gassy! Pregnancy affects the digestive system and slows it down so the body has more time to absorb nutrients for the growing baby.

Early pregnancy hormones affect digestion. For some people this causes constipation, some have diarrhoea, some have Burping Issues. It's number 837 on the list 'Annoying Pregnancy Stuff'. If you're very lucky it will evolve into acid indigestion/heartburn.

great hmm

people talk about gaviscon a lot but that looks minging... can I use minty rennies or tums or something?

I'm afraid my burping has lasted the entire way through. Rennes and tums are fine, but check the packet just to be sure. I fucking hate gaviscon, it makes me want to vomit. Which when you're already nauseous is not ideal!

If you think the burping is bad, wait until the farting starts. This was a very unexpected pregnancy side effect for me & now have to be very careful whenever I bend over! Oh the glamour!

Ha ha ha yeah, burping and farting loads over here too. DP daren't light a match. The weird thing about the farting is the total lack of control! I'll have no idea it's coming until it's out. Very discomforting.
Gaviscon mings to high heaven, but I hold my nose and force it down because it does work.

My burping was horrendous in the beginning, real painful man burps! Unfortunatley gaviscon didn't touch it cause it was gas not heartburn. My boyfriend has been amazing and never thought badly of me, think he might be lying about the stinky farts being ok though! Xx

I burped for the whole nine months, both times.

I remember crying on dh "i'm never going to be able to stop"

As soon as they were born i stopped.

Considering you are only 7 weeks you have my sympathies and i'm sorry to be bearer of bad news!

Kilkers Sun 20-Jan-13 22:20:42

Very burpy here also, I'm 5+4 and have been feeling it for the last week or so. The trumps have just started, finally feel like I can fart in front of DP without him laughing at me, we've only been together for 13 years! IT'S PAYBACK TIME, MUAHA HA HA HA! (evil laughter) wink

TinkyPeet Sun 20-Jan-13 22:33:56

Yep. Burpy burperson here, on average every 30 seconds, more often if I'm eating, such a lovely thing to do at the table I know. Has the kids in hysterics too. Daren't even think about a nice meal out :/ x

Dh2812 Sun 20-Jan-13 22:40:47

I was burping all the time but now I'm out of first trimester it seems to have stopped. Fingers crossed it stays that way but I'm sure it will be replaced with something else equally glamourous!

LouiseD29 Sun 20-Jan-13 22:47:31

I'm 10+3 and having the same issue! My poor husband is being very patient with me... smile

Ivvu6 Sun 20-Jan-13 22:50:06

My hubby said to me yesterday that i´m like a troll these days, I´ve but on 4 stone and can´t stop farting and burping lol. I´m like well you have to suffer my smell only 9 months I have to put up with yours rest of my life lol

Jsa1980 Sun 20-Jan-13 22:55:58

Yep, burping and farting like a trooper here (29 weeks) used to tell the oh off for it but now it's a competition, I've warned him it stops (hopefully!) after I've given birth

I feel for you op. I had this from day one. I'm 14 weeka now and unfortunately it's only gotten worse...I'm having to burp every 20 seconds whether or not I've eaten/drank anything. Plus got horrid acid indigestion and heartburn. I personally can't take gaviscon but am on ranatadine for it. Maybe ask doc what you can take. Have been told rennies is good but word to the wise...avoid the peppermint one. It's disgusting!

Im 32 weeks and have been burping since day 1! It has only got worse Im afraid, and I burp and vomit trapped air all day every day and through the night too so i can't sleep. If the air goes down further it gets trapped in my intestines behind my uterus and I roll around for hours with agonising trapped wind pains, especially at night. Last night only had 2 hrs sleep due to this and often wonder if its early labour the pain is so bad but it always turns out to be gas in the end as it finally starts to get out.
I have tried windeze, rennies, tums, gaviscon, gaviscon advanced, apple cider vinegar, papaya enzymes, mint name it. Nothing really works except doing some squatting and bending exercises or getting on all fours and moving from side to side to release the burps more easily. Thought i was the only one suffering this burping as everyone else seems to get heartburn which I only get occasionally. Good luck! Lets hope it goes away eh!

I had this with DS. DH suggested fizzy drinks which was something I never used to drink..they were my saviour! They didn't so much relieve the burping as make you burp properly (charming). I went off tea/coffee but had to actually limit my fizzy juice intake to 4 cans (maximum) a day as otherwise I would have slurped diet coke constantly.

badguider Tue 22-Jan-13 17:15:32

thanks folks, even though it sounds like this might be my life for the next 6-7 months sad

i have been drinking fizzy water - don't know why, i just crave it and hate ordinary water right now, and am chewing gum.. will try some kind of rennies or tums as soon as i get to a shop that sells them.

running is helping me, when i have the energy, it does make me feel better - gets the burps out and keeps my bowels regular (so far). and weirdly when i'm running is about the only time i don't feel nauseous.

JessieEssex Tue 22-Jan-13 18:33:14

I'm 30+2 and still burping like mad! I'm pretty sure I've developed some kind of dairy intolerance, as it gets much worse if I have a lot of milk or yogurt. Fingers crossed it goes away after baby is born...

Quilty Tue 22-Jan-13 21:59:53

Yep it's all part of the 'fun'. Sometimes I get the feeling I need to be sick and when I try and bring it up I just do the most hideous belch! It does make me feel a bit better though!

Just wait until the trumping starts. Oh the horrendous, smelly trumping.

Pregnancy is not pretty.

Burpy and farty, as well as being fat and lumpy. I now win the competitions with the boyf.*

*disclaimer... he's in the Army and so was delighted that I could now join him in his favorite past-times (... romantic?)

PurplePoppySeed Wed 23-Jan-13 17:26:03

I'm 7 weeks tomorrow and I've just got the burps today. Have had the constipation and feeling full/sick for a week or so and tbh the burping initially made me feel a bit better, however, now realising that this might not be pleasant for another 7 months!
