Yep, push fluids and try to move/walk as much as possible. If it just gas, it will pass. If it is a blockage, fluids and moving will help. If you get nauseous, go to the ER. It's probably just gas if you are crampy, not having PAIN.

I love a good cole slaw, but always get cramps after eating cabbage, too.
