  • Check with your doctor to see if you can take beano or another gas reliever.

  • Don't do baking soda! It's really high in sodium, and can make you dehydrated AND bloated at the same time. Call your OB and ask what they recommend, and if you can take simethicone (gas-x.)

  • i would go to a healthfood store and get a good probiotic. i normally take one a day, but if probiotics are new to you, you may want to take one in the am, and one in the pm. also be sure to drink enough water and eat lots of green veggies and brown rice! i don't think a little baking soda would be something to worry about. i would rather try that than beano or gas x!
