I am 5 weeks pregnant today and for the last 2 weeks I was having heartburn really bad, that has since supsided. Now I have the gassy/bubbling and Iam constantly passing gas and burping. I don't remember this with my first pregnancy which was 9 yrs ago. Did anyone else have the gas and did it go away?

I have the same issue with gas. I am 6 weeks prego and it seems to never go away...LOL I also agree with you on "everything stinks". Everywhere I go-work, shopping, just sitting at home, something always smells and my husband doesn't smell it, either. LOL

Gosh, yes, the gas has been horrid for me this time! I was drinking ginger ale to help w/my stomach upset, but then I realized that even the slightest bit of carbonation made me blow up like a balloon! I'm 12 weeks now and it's definitely better (I'm at least not in constant pain from it), but it's not gone, either. Hope it goes away for both of us soon! :)
