  • Gas X

    It's safe. The ingredients are the same as the baby gas drops.

    I have been pregnant 3 times and it always seems around 20 weeks I get the worst gas pains stuck too.

  • I need something to help now before I get to the store, I'm in so much I can't even take care of my 2year old right now. I'm just trying to lay on the floor.

  • r u sure it's gas? you shouldn't be in that much pain for so long with just gas....have you pooped lately?? are you constipated? if you are having normal bowel movements, call your doctor. something doesn't sound right...
    if it's been longer than 2 days since your last poop, or if you have hard stool, try milk of magnesia-it's gentle...sometimes those iron supplements make you may need to change your diet or take a laxative to help

  • Symethacone you can take. It is the same thing in the Mylacon drops that are given to infants. You can get it at WalMart, just get the generic 'gas relief extra strength'. I have had it too and it works within minutes!

  • you can go to the maternity ward in the hospital if your concerned since your past 16 weeks. thats how it is in miami. you can avoid the er. call your doctor. you shouldnt be asking us first, ask them first. they can get you the help you need. eat wheat products and avoid gas causing foods (gum, beans, dairy, brocolli, cauliflower, etc)
