discomfort — The Bump
1st Trimester


I've been having upper abdomen discomfort after eating lately.  Is that normal?  Sometimes its on the right side and sometimes its on the left side.  Its not really a pain its just not comfortable.  I was thinking of getting out the heating pad tonight to see if that helps.

Re: discomfort

  • i realized i could better describe it as a pressure underneath my ribs.

  • If it's pressure it's likely it's gas..it can be very uncomfortable...I've taken gasX for it, my doc said it was fine,.

  • It sounds like bad gas
  • I was dealing with this all day yesterday. I went for a long walk and then felt much better afterwords. Things seemed to "work themselves out" shall we say.

  • Sounds like it's gas, or acid reflux-it's safe to use Gas-x but stay away from the heating pad. I asked my Dr about using a heating pad, she said it's not safe to use them and to avoid overexposure to the heat, hot baths, hot tubs, etc. When I have gas pain I eat yogurt or chew on ginger gum-hope this helps:)
