so, i know that when your pregnant, you get bad gas. I understand that.

is there anything safe to take to help calm it down? it doesn't matter what i eat. i get gas from drinking water! and its constant.
if gas was green like it is in cartoons, my house would be so clouded!!! lol

  • Try drinking ginger ale or even another soda frequently, not flat. When I don't feel good and get 'gassed up' drinking soda helps me burp and sometimes the other way too and gets rid of the gas buildup. Plus drinking the soda and having gas from it can sometimes cover up which end the gas is coming from. Feel better!!

  • oh my, I had horrible gas before I found out for sure I was prego...and I worked in a salon so I would be doing my clients hair and have to fart, and I didnt want to do it right by their head so I kept finding reasons to leave...literally every three mins. It was so embarrassing

  • Walking helped me alot. Now that I am on bed rest I just get really bad gas pains and I keep forgetting to ask the dr if I can take anything.
