So randomly at night I've been having really bad gas cramps. They hurt so bad but they are typically gone in the morning. Today they are still hear.... all day!! It hurts so bad! I'm not having a lot of gas but when I do it does make it feel better. I've been a little constipated so I took some fiber pills... maybe that was a horrible idea?!

Thoughts, solutions?

When is it worth calling the doctor? It's not in my uterus its in my upper digestion like in my belly belly.

In my experience, the more stabbing type pains in lower abdominal area are the stretching of your round ligaments. They are the ligaments that attach from your pubic bone to your uterus. As your uterus stretches, so do these ligaments, and it can be painful. The fiber probably won't hurt if you are already constipated, but if I had to guess, the pains you are experience are stretching ligaments.

I get them too. I've had horrible constipation this time around and get gas pains up in my stomach area. The only thing that has helped me is walking. If it's night, I get out my wii fit thingy and do the step up, step down thing for about 20 minutes. Moving seems to help me.

I'm right there with you!!! Lots of abdominal discomfort. Trying to drink soooo much water to help out the situation, but don't get much relief. Hope you get some relief soon.
