Where do you normally feel gas pains?

The pain of indigestion is often felt in the lower mid-chest, but can be felt in the upper abdomen. It may be accompanied by gas pain, which is often felt in the left upper side of the abdomen, but can be felt anywhere.

Accordingly, why do I have so much gas while pregnant?

The hormone progesterone is one of the main causes of excess gas during pregnancy. As your body produces more progesterone to support your pregnancy, progesterone relaxes muscles in your body. This includes the muscles of your intestine. Slower moving intestine muscles mean that your digestion slows down.

What gas medicine is safe during pregnancy?

Gas-X and other anti-gas meds (Phazyme, Flatulex, Mylicon, Mylanta Gas) relieve abdominal pain caused by excessive gas in the digestive tract. Their active ingredient is simethicone, which is safe during pregnancy.
