I am pregnant with my second child. I never once had an issue with gas in my first pregnancy but this one has been terrible! I've tried cutting back on common 'gassy' foods to no avail. Any pregnancy safe methods? Are there foods that I can eat that can help this problem? Or am I just going to have to deal with it until this kiddo is born?

  • Papaya fresh sliced, papaya juice, or you can buy papaya tablets. The tablets taste like candy. Don't let DH/SO find this out or they'll be gone.

    You can eat a tablet before meals or after. It'll help break down your food, prevent heart burn, and def reduce the gas. The drug store will probably have them. Just ask. I get them there or at the natural grocery.

  • it might be your prenatal vitamins. I have the same issue, Im pregnant with my third and didn't have this issue my first two pregnancies. I notice I only have really bad gas when I take my vitamins so I started taking them before bed so they run through my system by morning then I don't have the gas issue during the day.
