Question:
Hello I am 7 weeks 6 days pregnant with # 2. SInce about 5 weeks 4 days, I have been expiriencing debilitationg gas, conspitation, and nausea. I have tried Zantac, Prilosec, Tums, and now I am on prevacid. I cannot even care for my 1 year old. Everything I eat I burp it up and feel as though I have to vomit and then add constipation to it. I don't know what more to do waiting for my doctor to reply and hopefully I will get this worked out any advice or ideas on how to help.
