Water is your best bet. Aim for eight to 10 8-ounce glasses every day, but other fluids count too.
Physical activity and exercise should be a part of your daily routine. If you can’t make it to a gym, add a daily walk to your routine. Aim to walk or exercise for at least 30 minutes.

Be sure to consult your obstetrician first before starting any exercise regimen during pregnancy.

Try removing potential food triggers from your diet one at a time, until your gas symptoms improve. Brussels sprouts, cabbage, broccoli, wheat, and potatoes are common gas culprits.
