gas pain?

Having some pain in my upper abdomen right under my ribs. How can you tell if it's gas pain or something serious? I'm burping a lot and have been slightly constipated for the past 2 days, sorry for the over share, so I'm thinking it's gas pain. I just don't want to write it off if it could be something to be concerned about.

I'd had severe pain in my upper abdominal area for ages. My dr keptvtelling me it was ligament pain, then I was told it was my liver due to my preeclamplsia,  but it just wouldn't go away and was getting worse. Thank god some ladies on here encouraged me to get it checked out on Monday, saw a surgeon on Tuesday, had my disfunctional gallbladder out on Wednesday and am now recovering at home, 22wks pregnant today. Always get things checked if you don't feel right!

Is the pain on the upper right side? Feel full all the time? With all the burping it could be your gallbladder/gallstones.
