Answer: Gastric problem is normal in pregnancy and it may cause of cramps in stomach. One of the more effective ways to remedy gas during pregnancy is to monitor your diet. While you can't restrict everything that gives you gas without affecting your nutrition as well as the nutrition of the baby, certain food culprits that produce particularly bad gas can be avoided. The same types of foods the produce gas outside of pregnancy also can produce gas during your pregnancy, such as high-fiber foods like oat bran, most fruits, beans, broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower, as well as some starchy foods like potatoes and corn. MEAL SIZE Adjusting the size and frequency of your meals also might help reduce problems with pregnancy gas. Sticking to just three large meals increases the work for your digestive tract, increasing the risks for gas development. Eat smaller meals more frequently instead, which not only helps reduce gas but also can help control your blood sugar levels. MEAL POSITION The way you eat your meals also can affect how much gas is produced. Limit the time you spend lying down and eating. Instead, get in a seated position while you eat, and stay seated immediately after eating to help digestion and reduce the risk of gas. Several other eating and drinking habits can be introduced to help reduce gas. MEDICATION For serious gas, your doctor might be prescribe an anti-gas medication. Do not take an over-the-counter medication for gas unless told to by your doctor, as even over-the-counter medications might have an impact on your pregnancy.
