No: Farting won't necessarily change with pregnancy. Will most likely be the same :).

May occur: Increased flatus (passing gas) can occur with pregnancy. However, it is not a reliable indicator of pregnancy. A pregnancy test is the best way to determine pregnancy.

Increased flatus: Can occur with pregnancy but is not diagnostic. Take a pregnancy test if your period is late.
