I am going to be a new Mommy soon and wow being pregnant has really been eye opening for me. Most things are bueno but goodness some things are embarassing. I am so gassy. Does anyone else have this problem and what do you to stop it?
I'm definately more gassy than normal! It surprises me but its normal. It's impossible to cut out all the foods that could possibly make you gassy. My doctor told me it's just something that comes along with being pregnant and that at least I have an excuse! LOL
I have been extremely gassy and bloated also. It's crazy since that is when I look like I have a baby bump. I try eating little meals, not waiting until I am hungry to eat and not eating too much. I noticed carbonated drinks make it worst, so I can't even have apple cider :-( also potatoes, certain veggies. It's frustrating at times, since you cannot eliminate every food, but I guess if you eat just greens, protein and certain fruits they do not give as much gas.
The best thing for me has been to eat on time, or about every 3 hours, exercise, and eat small meals. I hope this helps.
If you are gassy, drink something hot or warm. Warm milk, hot tea, hot choc, coffee, etc. But this even works when you are not pregnant.
