Name that stomach problem...?

Name that stomach problem...? Topic: Name that stomach problem...?
June 16, 2019 / By Tikvah
Question: 2 questions. First, what do these symptoms sound like to you? Second, should I see a doctor? I probably should, but I want to get some ideas of what people think is going on first. I've been having excessive gas, an upset stomach, and I feel like I must puke every time I eat. It's like my food is never settled. It feels similar to pregnancy, but slightly different. I'm not pregnant as I just had a baby 8 weeks ago and we haven't had sex yet. My poor hubby. So I have an 8 week old and an 18 month old and every time I get stressed, my stomach seems to bug me again. So it's whenever I'm stressed or right after I eat, I get an upset stomach with excess gas. It's been going on about 4-5 days now. I'm nursing my son and he also seems to have symtoms. He has had a bit of diarrhea also. Any ideas?

Well, if your son is having the symptoms as well, I suspect it is something in your diet. Have you started eating anything new or something you haven't had in a while? Since you said it happenes when your stressed, I can't imagine a more stressful time than after having a baby, and you have a toddler too. My body is still not back to the way I use to be before my son (he's 3 months and I have a 4 year old too). I can say I try to eat healthy but It's not always convienient. I'm frequently running around and some days I forget to eat until late at night, then I'll eat too much and feel sick. Just my thoughts.

Gallbladder. Possibly stones (or sludge). Very common during pregnancy and after. Also, there is a funny rule to remember (but does not ALWAYS apply) called the 5 F's 1) Fat 2) Female 3) Fertile 4) Fourty (over) 5) Flatulence If you have at least two, it sounds like that may be it. So yes, please see your doctor. As for the baby. Sounds like two distinct things. I think the baby is just getting used to his new gut. Thats all. Hope this helps!

Try to avoid gassy foods, caffeine, and anything you or your husband may be sensitive to. Is it hot in your home? Heat may be upsetting the babes digestion. You may try some oral grade rosewater, it works wonders for my dd who has a chronic nervous disposition. Be nice to yourself and don't forget to be intimate as you are comfortable with hubby. He is surely missing you. Stick with the nursing it will save you mountains of time and effort with another little one underfoot. If you need any nursing help just say the word I did 12 years of breastfeeding counselling! Successfully nursing both children.

You can give your body what it craves without overdoing it... You just have to know how. If you feel that you absolutely cant say no to that piece of food then here is what you do. Drink a full glass of water about 20 minutes before you eat then sit down and slowly eat your food. take a sip of your drink (it doesn't have to be water) between each bite. Don't eat while watching TV or reading that way you are totally aware of how much food your consuming. The water before your meal and the sips between bites will make you feel full faster meaning you wont be able to eat as much as you normally would... which means less calories and fat consumed! If you keep depriving your body of what it wants you'll just end up crash dieting and stuffing your face. I'm not saying you should give in to every little craving you have... but if you feel you have to have it then do it! Another little tidbit that most people don't know. Avoid eating foods with high carbs an hour before your workout which includes energy bars and sports drinks. If you consume high carbs before your workout it raises your insulin levels causing your body to work hard to burn those carbs and return your insulin levels back to normal rather than burn fat. Also try not to eat about 3 hours before you go to sleep. hope this helped!
