i know its fairly common and normal to get really stinky gas when pregnant. especially the farther along you are. im 27 weeks and omg every fart jsut fills the room im in and even my kids dont like coming into my room in the mornings cause it smells like farts in here LMAO! its fairly embarrassing but THANKFULLY I am single so theres no man in my life that i have to deal with too. (my ex would have died by now because hes a prudish a*****e lmao) is there anything that helps with it. i mean i know dietary changes might help. i eat fairly healthy, salads here and there, (not a ton of veggies daily but i get a couple of servings) fruit like bananas and oranges and strawberries. I eat meat only once or twice a day at the most (not big on meat) and i only get some dairy becasue it upsets my stomach. i also am taking my prenatals daily. lots of water and sometimes i drink root beer (its the only soda i like now maybe one can a day)

try eating really small portions and eat slowly.....eating quickly (like most of us moms do forces air into the digestive tract) just like a baby getting air bubbles in their bottle.

It didn't matter what I did, I was a little fart monster :lol:. I think it just has something to do with the fact that you having a large creature inside you screwing up your normal body functions haha.

i do eat somewhat slow. i mean i have to stop alot during my time to eat because i have 4 other kids that i have to deal with. or if i get some quiet time. i just eat normal, i dont see it as fast anyway lol.
