I really don't know what to say as everything I have typed so far seems quite patronising and clichéd.
I am going through the same thing just now (I joke about my 'food baby' and ask my hubby to feel it kick! lol!) Joking aside, I know how uncomfortable the bloating is and how embarrassing the pimples are. I'm 32 and didn't have skin this bad as a teenager!
There are a few things I would like to suggest:
Get your butt back to the Doctor. If you feel like you are being dismissed, get another one until you find one that makes you comfortable and, more importantly, takes you seriously.
See a GI Doctor. I've had all the scans, blood-work etc come back normal. I am now in the process of having my gallbladder investigated. Request a HIDA test which checks that your gallbladder is functioning. Look at the gallbladder forum on here. I would bet that there are many similarities between your symptoms and the other posters.
Please don't give up hope. You are not alone in what you're going through. The only thing that has kept me sane has been the forums on here.
Take care sweetheart.
