Hi anon,,,
Did you discussed with your doctor about these symptoms??

Yes..but he said nothing can be done as of now.

Hmm.. anon, once take opinion from a good sugeon.. because medicines are there for IBS during pregnancy..

Hi mommy. There are different compounds of iron available that do not irritate the intestines. Ferrous bisglycinate is one of them. It does not cause any gastric upset. Talk to your doc about this. Try homeopathy for the ibs. There are some wonderful medicines to take care of this.
