Is it normalto be gassy like this in early pregnancy? No matter what I do my abdominal gas is terrible! The only thing that helps is lying down on my back

I am also constipated and achy. Was anyone else like this when they were pregnant?

  • it is very normal. IF the constipation is bad enough your doc may recommend taking a stool sofener. But like rokolms said lost of water, and veggies, whole grains, legumes and fruits will help too :)
