Strange question about when I eat salads?

Okay, so this may be TMi but that's why it is listed as an anonymous question, lol.

I have been craving salads the past few weeks. I am 37 weeks pregnant and I already notice that when I'm pregnant my metabolism works better than usual. Well, when I eat salads I have diahhrea afterwards and get gassy.

Why is that? Is it because of the metabolism working quicker? It's kind of strange.

  • It may just depend on what you are putting in your salad. If you aren't used to fiber, it can make you a bit gassy. Drink water with your salad, to help balance out the fiber. Also, remember that pregnant women are gassy in general.
