    I could have written this post! Yesterday I had terrible pains for about 3hrs. Im 20 weeks. I couldn't stand up straight and couldn't sit down. It's so painful! I tried a few things to relieve it, but unfortunately nothing worked. I hope it doesn't happen while I'm at work, cos I wouldn't be able to function. Sorry I'm no help!

    I used to suffer horribly before pregnancy, and enos was my best friend. Since being pregnant I haven't really suffered at all, a few times and that's it. I have still used enos and find it amazingly effective.

    My DP isn't pregnant but gets really bad wind pain often. She finds a warm shower really helps and helps to refocus her away from the pain as well.

    Taking a probiotic helped me.

    Peppermint tea also helps apparently. I drank it after my c-section.

    I second peppermint tea. I thought I was going to have to leave work one day it was so bad and a friend made me a tea with two teabags of peppermint in it, I drank that, lay down and 30 mins later I was cured! I always have some in my handbag now as I have a tendancy for wind pain.

    I third the peppermint tea! I was so bloated and gassy early on in my pregnancy and 1 peppermint tea a day would ease the pressure (though keep in mind - all that air still needs to escape haha)

    Bowel gas is a normal occurrence during pregnancy as you get constipated and dont even realise it with your stomach being bloated anyways. Probiotics are the best thing to help and are beneficial to your babies gut flora too. Exercise is also the best way to keep it at bay too.

    Peppermint tea will only relieve it temporarily whereas probiotics will keep everything working well.
