    SIBO anyone

    Hi! I am 35 yr old female that started having upper left quardrent discomfort in June of this year. I was also having excessive belching. I had a sonogram showing mildly enlarged spleen of 13cm. I pushed to do bloodwork for hpylori and tested positive for the antibody, did treatment. Saw a GI and did a endoscopy 9/11 and showed neg for hpylori and celiacs. I was still having the same symptoms in waves. GI suggested a breath test for SIBO, seeing as it seemed my symptoms improved, I didn't do it. Now I am 4-5 weeks pregnant and it seems they are more constant. I'm terrified I have this condition and how this will affect the nutrition absorbtion of my baby. Anyone with experience? All I read was that even with meds it can still return.
