  • Well, it's been a L-O-N-G time since I was pregnant (20 yrs), but I do remember the weird stretching feeling that you've described and I do believe it's the uterus stretching to accomodate the baby. I never asked my Dr. to confirm that. Just my thoughts. Maybe someone here can validate that for sure, or not. As far as the gas pains, I don't remember what I took, but also maybe someone here can help you w/that, too. Best wishes on your pregnancy. It does get better.

  • yes it is stretching and the pain will get a lot worse and the main thing to do about gas is cut back on foods that u find make you gasy

  • i personally dont think the pain will get worse as long as you stay hydrated...your uterus is stretching a little at 12 weeks to get used to stretching later for baby but right now i would also drink a lot of water because the cramping also puts stress on your body which can cause a lot of unhealthy things to happen for baby...lay down and rest and stay hydrated and take some tylenol and for the gas its just part of it but try and stay away from the green veggies for a couple of days to give yourself a little break cuz later on the gas gets worse from the pressure the baby puts on you
