In brief: It's common
Most of us have more gas when we're pregnant.
I'd recommend you learn to laugh at yourself, and maybe try Tums (calcium carbonate) or another antacid. I'm not sure why it happens: a bit of lactose intolerance? The constipation that comes with the slowing of the smooth muscle of the gut? Be kind to yourself. We all have this issue when we're pregnant.

In brief: Simethicone or Gas-X
Pregnant women often complain about bad gas.
Adjusting your diet may help. Some people have to decrease dairy products. Over the counter medications like Gas X / Simethicone can be helpful.
