What does gas feel like when 5 months  pregnant

Like regular gas: A 5 month pregnancy is not that big, so gas at that time should feel similar to regular gas before pregnancy. There may be more reflux, heartburn, and gas, but the quality of it should be similar to past symptoms. If there are big cramps, possible contractions, or other worrisome symptoms, a woman can see her primary care doctor and ob-gyn to look for routine problems and for pregnancy problems. ...Read more

Why does my stomach feel like its been fill with air an i look pregnant ? I use windezz/gas-x but that only settles it for a bit?

May be: A number of things beginning with the foods that you eat, alcohol you consume and if you smoke or have asthma, air-swallowing is common. All of these can be a source of excess gas in your diet. I assume you are not pregnant, and this distension doesn't cause any pain, nausea or vomiting. If it does then you should be evaluated by your doctor. ...Read more

Unlikely, but...: Depends on when you were in your cycle. Any unprotected sex carries chance of pregnancy and risk for std. Sperm come out even before the major expulsion during ejaculation. Use protection next time. Early pregnancy foes not feel like gas. ...Read more

Normal: The symptoms you are describing are normal. Your calorie demand has increased because you are growing a baby-- hunger is the way your body tells you it needs more calorie intake. The constipation and gas pains occur because hormones cause the GI tract to move more slowly. ...Read more

Six weeks pregnant with cramps in lower abdomen feels like traped gas what could this mean?

Various: The "big worry" in the first trimester is bleeding and cramps. Cramping alone may be caused by severeal things: trapped gas, uterine "spasm" due to the adjusting pregnancy, or bladder spasms. Is constipation an issue? Try an anti-gas medication like simethicon/gasx. It is safe in pregnancy and may help. If you develope fever or vaginal bleeding, that requires evaluation quickly. ...Read more

Possible: Though not common, it is still possible to get pregnant despite having a tubal ligation. Unfortunately, nothing is 100%. Pregnancies after tubal ligations have a higher risk of being ectopic or tubal pregnancies. Consider checking pregnancy test and following with gynecologist. Abdominal movement sensations can be from intestinal movements or bladder spasms. ...Read more
