  1. This is something I'd like to know also. I'm 2 and a half weeks out and still have awful problems with gas. It feels like I'm getting air trapped in my chest and I can't burp and it hurts! I'm taking prilosec (also getting terrible heartburn), zofran and gas x and I walk everyday. I eat slowly and take small bites but still have problems. I don't get it. :(

  2. I'm not gonna lie, gas pains for me were terrible. Every time I would take a drink of anything my chest would get so tight and I'd start freaking out but after a few minutes I'd burp and be fine. My doc let me take prilosec for gas and I walked all the time to try and get rid of it. Everyone's different though, hopefully it won't be so bad for you.

  3. I'm feeling like I've made a mistake. I've been miserable ever since I left the hospital Wednesday. I can't keep anything down in having the worst gas pains in my chest I constantly feel like I'm going to puke. I sleep with the trash can next to me because I am always so nauseous. It hurts so bad to get in and out of bed that I usually just lay on the couch. I can't even hold my baby anymore because he weighs too much. I wish there was a reset button, I'm so sick of waking up miserable. I feel like this was the biggest mistake.

  4. I feel your pain! I was just released Wednesday evening and I feel miserable. I start gagging even after drinking a sip of Water. It hurts my stomach so bad to get in and out of bed it feels terrible. I puked twice yesterday trying to take my liquid pain medicine (which smells and tastes worse than cough syrup) and boy did that hurt! I'm in so much pain and everytime I drink anything I get sick and get awful heartburn. I'm really hoping this gets easier soon cuz all I feel right now is regret. :(

  5. Hey guys I need some advice. I just got home from the hospital last night and I have got the absolute worst case of heartburn ever. I had it all throughout my pregnancy and this heartburn doesn't even compare to that. This is awful and usually I would take some Pepto bismol but not sure about now. Anyone have good advice? Thanks

  6. I am feeling a hundred different emotions right now. Nervous happy scared excited anxious grateful etc. I can't believe the day is finally here! I'm so ready to start this new journey to a healthier me for my family and I. Gotta run a couple quick errands then I'll be hospital bound. :)
