Answer: Hello dear. The hormone progesterone is one of the main causes of excess gas during pregnancy. As your body produces more progesterone to support your pregnancy, progesterone relaxes muscles in your body. This includes the muscles of your intestine. Slower moving intestine muscles mean that your digestion slows down. Few of the remedies are : Don't eat big meals. Take your time and chew thoroughly. Limit how much you drink during meals. Drink from a cup or glass – not from a bottle or through a straw – and don't gulp. Don't drink carbonated beverages. Take care.

Question: how to get rid of gastric trouble
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. High-fat and fried foods can increase both the intensity and odor of gas. Keep a food diary to help you determine which foods are causing the worst gas and either reduce them from your diet or find other foods that do not produce as much gas but still provide similar nutrition. 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. This is because you are introducing a more constant, smaller stream of glucose into your bloodstream, instead of just three large amounts during the day. 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. For example, slow down how fast you eat. The faster you eat, the more likely you will swallow air with your food, contributing to gas. Drinks should be consumed from a cup or glass, not through a straw or squirt lid for the same reason, as it can increase the amount of air you swallow. Carbonated drinks as well as any food or beverage that contains sorbitol or other artificial sweeteners should be avoided, as these also can contribute to 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.
