    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    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! :)
