  • Pregnancy hormones cause your muscles to relax. The muscles not only relax to accomidate a growing uterus but also the muscles of our digestive system relax in order to slow digestion to increase the absorbtion of nutrients which can cause bad gas. Many women experience bad gas at all stages of pregnancy. I would say that it's not too early for you to have gas and that it is very likely related to your pregnancy. You ought to think about avoiding foods that cause gas like High starch foods like potatoes and pasta and Fiber rich foods like oat bran and beans. Also avoid fizzy drinks (soda) and fatty foods). Eat slowly so you're not swallowing air along with your food and eat several small meals per day instead of three large ones. Since your gas may only get worse as your uterus grows and pushes on your intestines, start thinking about diet changes now. never take any gas remmedy without first consulting your OB first.
