Bloating, wind, burping

NVP Counsellor
Date: 2009-01-19

Question:
i am nearly 18 weeks and over the last week or so i have been experiencing serious bloating, wind and burbing. not had any of these symptons before and especially in the evenings feel like i have acid at the back of my throat and that i'm going to be sick (although i'm not) it seems to be getting worse each day. i've tried drinking lots of water but has not seemed to help and when i lay in bed at night am constantly getting up thinking i will be sick?? any help greatly appreciated. thanks

Answer:
It is difficult to say if you are experiencing NVP as you are 18 weeks pregnant and have not had these symptoms before. You should see your physician to rule out any other underlying cause of your symptoms.
