Sulfur Gas/Egg Gas

I'm 36 weeks and have had the worst sulfur gas ALL night long.
It's really smelly and nasty lol.
I dont know how to get rid of it and it hurts to hold it in.  
My poor baby daddy has to suffer through it and I feel horrible about it.  
Has anyone else had to deal with this?
How'd you get rid of it?

Me and you both! It started out small, like I could control it with tums. But then that wasn't enough so I switched to mylanta. And by this past weekend that wasn't enough! So I tried zantac but it only took the edge off for a few hours. Yesterday I had enough, and called my doctor, he called a prescription for prilosec. And as of this morning, so far so good.

Mt friend who is a nurse said it is a type of parasite in your stomach and a doctor can give you medicine for it. I had this at the beginning of the year and it never went away
