  • Yes it is very common and get used to it because for most pregnant women it will stay with you for the entire pregnancy. You can talk to your doctor to see what is safe to take so you Dont have to feel embarrassed to go out and you Dont have to feel uncomfortable. I took gas x but make sure you talk with your doctor before you try any kind of meds. Also try eating food that will make you less gassy. Like no beans, broccoli that kind of stuff. Good luck and Congrats.

  • LOL sorry.. yea i was the same!! Didnt matter where i was my DH would get so mad because i didnt give heads up or anything!! I had threw my whole pregnancy and i had asked my dr and he said try and stay away from greasy foods!! but it still contuined. So sorry mom just handle as best as you can, and if you can feel it comingon run to the bathroom or outside.
