FART!BURP! EVERY MINUTE IS THIS NORMAL?
I know some will take this as a joke, but it is now embarassing.Could someone who has the same problem please assist. I have a problem. I dont know, maybe its what i eat. I cant stop burping and farting. I know its part of nature but imagine every minute you need to pass some wind.I've tried identifying foods that create this problem for me but to no success.

So help me in identifying the kind of foods that cause so much airin my body, is this normal? I mean, burp....fart...burp....burp...fart...fart!! sometimes when i'm around people i try to hold it back but at times i feel bad that maybe i'm causing suffocation to the baby. When i try bending, a slight wind will come off, when i lie flat on the bed it comes off etc...

PS: I am 8 weeks pregnant

There is no harm to the baby. Try avoiding cabbage and green beans.
