    I dont have much advice, but I'm struggling with the same thing. Some days my tummy looks huge and round and so uncomfortable - I have to wear loose tops or its obvious i'm pregnant. Try wearing very loose trousers or skirts, that can help. I struggled with this pre-pregnancy but not as badly, and things like chewing slowly, not chewing gum etc can also help x

    Very normal and so uncomfortable. Someone posted some yoga stretching a while back to help with bloat. I lie down on my left side and right side, back and forth and gently rub my tummy to help gas move along and out! Also, drink some soda pop to help you burp! Preferably something lemony and zesty; 7up or Sprite. You can also try mineral water with lemon. Try to walk around, I know it's so uncomfortable, but walking helps a ton, even if it's just in your own home. I've had sleepless nights due to bloat! Good Luck!

    yoga does wonders for gas. if you have netflix or a movie store around, you should check out some pregnant yoga excersizes. they are very helpful for gas, or aches and pains. i do it before bed every night and it helps tons.
