very TMI question about foods

I am wondering if this is normal or its just something not sitting well with me...

Anyone ever take Alli or know what the side effects are? basically any extra fat you take in is expelled almost right away, not pleasent.

anyway, my body seems to be doing this as well. I cant eat anything greasy or fatty, which I know is a good thing, but its making for a very painful belly. The cramps from it this morning were enough to put me in tears, I was worried about just getting the kids to school!

anyone else having a similar issue? I should just cut all fat from my diet, but its hard when I cook for 3 other people.

I've never taken Alli before, but did take a prescription diet pill before that did the same thing. Certain foods don't really bother me...just depends on how it settles with my stomach that day. I can eat something greasy one day and be fine, but the next day I eat the same thing and I'm sick. I have IBS though and always have an upset tummy. I have noticed that my stomach cramps are so much worse now that I'm pregnant. Almost to the point where it feels like contractions! Ugh! Hope you feel better soon!

If I have something super greasy it drops me to my knees too. I try to avoid it as much as possible.

Is the pain on your right side? Gallbladder issues? Since having my gallbladder out I react very bad to anything greasy - it did not start right away, probably 3-4 years after I had it out.

I was going to suggest gallbladder problems too. I had some about this time my last pregnancy. It was awful. Luckily it went away though and I haven't had any more problems.

my system seems to be cleared out, LOL so Im feeling much better. I must have eatin something terrible.

I mean, I have this horrible gas daily, but this was something totally different! ill mention it to my doc on the 11th since all the gas stuff that is safe that I have tried doesnt help at all.

I hope you feel better soon, and it's just your system being touchy while preggo, and not your gall-bladder. I have the problem with digesting more fat than my system is used to. Not a lot of fun.
