  • Well, what worked for me was taking a Tylenol and drinking two bottles of Gatorade... My bf's doc told him that Gatorade is a miracle worker when it comes to gas pains and I had no idea and was very skeptical until I had no choice one day and tried it. Im not sure if it was the Tylenol or what but one or the other worked lol.

  • Be careful with gatorade& powerade, sports drink intake should be limited in pregnancy. My daughter seems to think coffee (1 cup of half caf) works wonders. And usually by the time she is done drinking it she has to go and it seems to push out all the gas first. If you don't want to try coffee try any hot liquid (tea, hot choc.)

  • Lying on either side works wonders for me. It actually makes me burp and fart when I have bad gas. Sometimes I actually go to the living room when I feel particularly gassy b/c it comes out often and really noisily from both ends and that way my hubby can sleep and I can release in private.
