I know this topic sounds repetitious, but this is all relatively new to me. My stomach looks like I might be 9 months pregnant and I have gas so bad til I don't want any company. I have to get something today for the gas. Are there any good suggestions for herbals or such? If I took a laxative (I'm usually C) would that help to decrease the size of my stomach? I have started doing crunches because I can't wear my size 8 clothes anymore! I definitely can't afford a new wardrobe! For me to exercise, I must be desperate! I have reached the point of desperation! Help please!!
