I've had super sharp pains all morning (and some last night). I'm 7 months pregnant and although I'm not worried about the baby (she or he is still kicking like crazy), I am worried it's a partial obstruction or something. 

I ate mild yesterday (I usually do anyhow), and laying down helped with the pains. Today, ever since I got into work, it's been stabbing sharp pains (similar to severe gas pains) in my stomach. It's been 3 hours and I took gas-ex and it has not gotten any better. I'm considering leaving work early but to be honest I don't want to walk to my car or drive, so I'm putting it off. 

In the past, my surgeon said it may be me working out a partial obstruction and to just do liquids, try to walk it out, etc. I don't know if it's worth calling the surgeon bc I know they can't really do anything if that's what it is. 

Any suggestions? I'm staying away from food for now. I did have 4 bowel movements over night, which is normal for me (even with taking an Imodium at 7pm and one at 1:30am). I haven't gone since 7am, which again is normal. No vomiting or fever, just super sharp pains.

Any nausea?  If it is an obstruction, I've learned that super enzymes by Now break the obstruction down and I've also learned to only do small sips or stop drinking for a bit instead of drinking too much at once.  And also, do deep breathing.  

No Nausea, but the doc did call me in to check it out. I was a little dehydrated and they think it's scar tissue from the previous surgeries and my belly stretching. It's pretty constant, but manageable. I guess this is just par for the course until baby comes. Keep pushing fluids - slow and steady like you suggested. That'll help they said.
