I'm currently 11-12 weeks pregnant and for some weeks now I have been experiencing some bowel-related issues. I've had a couple of bouts of constipation, but able to keep that fairly under control with diet (though still not going that regularly or as easily as is 'normal' for me), but my main issue is with gas. I just can't help passing wind and the smell is very unpleasant and pungent. It is incredibly embarrassing, especially in one-on-one situations when you can't blame anyone else!! Is this a common occurrence during pregnancy? Does anyone know how to help stop this from happening?
