I have so much gas its unbelievable and its really vile. I tried windeze which didn't really work. Im 13 wks btw. Has anyone go the same? Is there anything that works.

I've had terrible MS for about 6 weeks but it seems to be easing off at the moment and had terrible gas through out- burping and farting like a trooper.

In my opinion its prob down to the attendant constipation- all that poo trapped there that the fart's got to filrter through (not a nice picture, I know- but that's my explanation for it!)

I think your gut slows down to the food is fermenting a bit. Eat more veggies and fruit which goes through faster and less meat which does hang around and ferment a bit.
like the title though grin

I'd like to reassure you that it goes away, but I cant. I am 33 weeks, and still popping off. Cant help myself, they just slip out blush Dont think there is much you can do.

Thanks for this thread as I though I was the only one!

Yes I've had the most disgusting noxious farts blush accompanied by diarrhoea rather than constipation. I've had a bacterial gut infection too though. It is starting to ease a bit now but still pretty awful.18+5
