I was told if you're gassy during pregnancy your baby will be gassy... Is there any truth in this?

  • A sincere question and I will reply with a sincere answer: NO :) In my experience, being gassy is just part of the fun of being pregnant. With that, I don't think it's got anything to do with the baby when he/she comes out.

    I've been there, experienced it, and so far, my daughter has not "imitated" my gassiness..hehehe...

  • I was not very gassy during my pregnancy with my first... and my son is extremely gassy. Ha. Just like his dad.
    I am with this pregnancy... so far, the statement's not true, but I guess I'll let you know? :P

  • If you don't let it out, your baby may explode

  • I was not very gassy during pregnancy and my son was VERY gassy - I think they are just things that some people experience with everything that all of a sudden they become truth -

  • I don't think so... Aren't most pregnant women gas machines? It's just all the crazy stuff going on in your body. Baby may or may not be gassy. My babe wasn't too bad, and I was pretty darn gassy! :P
