In brief: Good digestion

Digestive symptoms are common in pregnancy.
Make sure you are getting plenty of fiber, fluids & whole, nutritious foods. An easy bowel movement daily helps too. If you are constipated, gas may increase. Taking simethicone tabs may help & are safe, but start with what and how you eat and your other GI complaints may diminish. Last- develop a sense of humor- your "gas problems" are only the beginning.
