  • What foods are you eating? Anything spicey? Tomatoes? Beans? Etc.... If you notice this more after you've eaten a certain food...try laying off that food for a week or so. See if it helps.

  • probiotics are wonderful for stopping the problems that create gas. However, you should speak to your doctor or midwife at your next appointment and see if there is a possibility your gallbladder is involved, as this is fairly common during pregnancy. Regular exercise, enough water and fiber, as well as regular and balanced meals and snacks will help to balance out your digestive system.
