This past week I have been experiencing passing very stinky rotten-egg smelling farts and burps. I have been googling and it is of course it is getting me very scared as articles about gallbadder issues and what-not are popping up! Does anyone else have this problem? Please tell me u do!
Have you really never had this before? I get it once or twice a year regardless of being pregnant or not. It's horrible - especially the burps. BLEURGH. Usually after I've had a takeaway - I put it down to dodgy food.
I've had toxic waste farts to match my bulldog's this week. LOL (tmi, I know)... today I also started having the runs and I've been belching for two days. Fun times!! I am not concerned. Google can be your enemy too.
Smelly gas is brought on by the gaseous waste of the bacteria digesting and breaking down food in your colon. The longer the bolus is in your colon, the smellier the gas gets and can even produce a small amount of sulfur-the rotten egg smell, or even methane-these are the ones that you swear linger for hours! Sugar alcohol-an artificial sweeter-causes my mom to have the horrible smelling gas ever. Garlic can cause the rotten egg farts. I know for me, when I start smelling horrid gas, I know I should poop a lot. I increase my water intake and eat fiber like crazy-although this can also cause smelly gas.
When my mom starts to fart stinky gas, I joke with her telling her she needs an enema because something has died in there and it not coming out.
I have gotten this several times during the pregnancy (and before... ). It's terrible and I feel bad for my poor husband!
In fact, I have terrible gas as we speak! My body's digestive system hasn't exactly been "normal" since being pregnant. In fact, one of the things I look forward to post-pregnancy is not being as gassy. I am ALWAYS super gassy, it's just stinkier sometimes than others... (sorry for the TMI!)
