14 weeks and have had the worst time with gas in my stomach since day 1. I having the feeling that I must burp even after 1 sip of water. And when I can't I get sick to my stomach worse. Is this just one of the many side effects of HG that must be dealt with? I was put on Zantac but could not tell that it helped. Does it have to be taken every day to build up? And I saw some of you use Gasx it is approved?
Please help! I can't take it anymore.

Of course call your OB to be sure, but I would take a good guess that Gas X is fine. It is the brand name for simethicone, which is an inert substance that, according to our pedi, isn't really absorbed into the bloodstream. That is why you can use so much of it for a colicky baby and it is safe.

Hope it helps...
