Gas/Flatulence

Very Early Pregnancy Symptom

Symptom Details

The rise in hormones during pregnancy relaxes the muscles throughout your body, including your digestive tract. This leads to the digestive process being slowed down. The bacteria now have more time to work on the undigested food before it is eliminated. This extra time leads to more fermentation and, as a result, more gas. Constipation can also be a cause as it slows down the bowel functions. This too will cause you to feel more gassy and bloated.

Comparison Chart

The chart below shows a comparison between the number of times this symptom was experienced by pregnant vs non-pregnant women.


**NOTE: Data for 15-21 dpo tends to be lower than expected as many women stop tracking symptoms after a positive pregnancy test.
