TMI I know but I'm stuck with a mortifying gas problem. I've had it pretty much since day one; I know it's the progesterone because birth control pills do this to me too. It's settled into a schedule. Never goes away completely but now I get the worst of it between about 4 and 9 p.m., no matter what or when I eat. It's horrible, uncomfortable cramps and bloating on top of the smell issue. I 've tried hanging close to the dogs, finding excuses to open windows and being generally anti-social but it's challenging, especially since we are trying to keep baby news quiet for awhile longer.
