Try increasing your intake of fruits first thing in the morning. Eat as much fruits till you feel full. after a gap on half an hour or an hour eat something else

hey ! hang in there. I agree with rhituparna . loads of fluids. can you do yoga? it may help. but plz check if you are fit to do light breathing exercise. that also helps

Hi chaitali.. If you are taking iron tablets that may also cause gas... So try to take iron tablets after dinner. A very light walk within home can be done. In extreme conditions.. You May take digene.. Please check with your gynaec first. I also suffered a lot in first trimester.. When things were beyond control I took digene mint syrup.. This helped me in getting sleep. Plus for better iron absorption.. Please Club it with vit c like kiwi or orange.. Also do not take any antacid like digene at the time when you take iron tablets.. Antacid slows iron absorption.. A gap of 2 hrs is recommended.

Most importantly don't have fruits before or after meals. there should be a minimum time gap of 1-2 hrs between fruits and meals. This is as per The Health Awareness Center in Mumbai who I follow and they have worked wonders in the lives of many. If you are in Mumbai, do visit them, will help you a lot in your journey ahead. See my review about them on BabyChakra. (search the name, you will find it)
