I have had troubles with IBS and slow colon for about 40 years. (More constipation than the other....it goes back and forth.) Quite often when I get too gassy, eat fatty foods, too much sugary foods, etc. I can get the pain in my lower right side. I worry sometimes that it might be appendicitis (which is a big fear of mine since my mother had hers burst and now it scares me!). I also have GAD (General Anxiety Disorder.) So, I tense up and it can even get worse.
With the pregnancy I would definitely have your OB/GYN check things out, but I just wanted to let you know that the gas/anxiety combo seems to always cause me discomfort in that same area and has for years! It can last a few hours or a few days, just off and on. The doctor told me there is sometimes a narrowing in that area of your colon, so I guess all that combined is my problem. Good luck.
