Excessive bloating (5 CM) in 5th week of pregnancy. 2 doctors said no meds allowed. I gain/lose 3 kilos during day. 1st pregnancy was the same! ?

Excessive bloating (5 CM) in 5th week of pregnancy. 2 doctors said no meds allowed. I gain/lose 3 kilos during day. 1st pregnancy was the same! ?

Actually: I allow my patients to use simethicone (gas x) for bloating. If this is from constipation, you can also use metamucil, colace, dulcolax and milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide). If your IBD causes diarrhea you can safely use immodium (generic fine), pepto bismol, kaopectate. I usually hand a list of safe meds for common problems at the first visit. Ask your OB if he/she has one. ...Read more
