I'm glad you're feeling better. I also get severe gas pains. My DH is getting used to having conversations about my poop (or lack thereof), lol. Unfortunately I have also learned the hard way that grease on an empty pregnant woman's stomach can lead to scary consequences! I second the pp's about the yogurt but also if that ever happens to you again make sure to drink a lot of fluids. You'd be surprised how dehydrating pooping can be and that might be why it was hard to take the tylenol. Good luck with your pizza!
The good stuff in Activia are probiotics, otherwise known as Acidophilus...and the good news is that it's available even without the yogurt. The stuff is a godsend - it comes in a variety of little pills, my favorite are the pearls (they're teeny and very easy to swallow) It works really well for all kinds of little digestive isssues. Check out the homeopathic area of your pharmacy or grocery store - I bet they have it. And it will be good to have on hand when you do go into the hospital, just in case they give you antibiotics. (antibiotics are wonderful for killing off the bad bacteria, but they also get the beneficial ones that hang out in your digestive tract. A little acidophilus supplement will keep things more even-keel - a big plus right after delivery!)
Good luck, and I hope things are better!
Oh my goodness... poor girl. I've been totally regular throughout my entire pregnancy - I know - shocking. But, I owe it all to my diet. I agree with the recommendation of one Activia yogurt a day, and as much high fiber food and water and you can eat. I always have 2 slices of whole wheat toast for breakfast, tons of raw fruits and veggies, and a couple of these crazy high fibre crackers (either Wasa or Rivita brand, with at least 7g of fibre per 3 crackers). Plus beans, etc mixed in with my meals. I probably also drink at least 4 litres of water a day. And walk.... and walk, and walk. I swear by it!!!!
Hopefully you can find something that works for you?!?! I can't imagine the pain you must be in
