Gah.

You know the one thing they never ever mention in any of the pregnancy books or websites?

Gah.

I've heard of some women experiencing that. Have you asked your doc about it? You might wanna. There are various causes, mostly innocuous, if I recall correctly. Some can be fixed so you can stop with the burping, though. No need to be more uncomfortable than necessary!

It's in the Girlfriend's Guide to Pregnancy, which I heartily recommend. Pretty much, your metabolism slows waaaay down so that your baby can get the absolute most out of everything you put in your body, but it has the unfortunate side effect of making you burp. And fart. Your friends will forgive you and if they don't they're not your friends.

PS-- if you have the trifecta of gastro intestinal problems and you haven't gone to the bathroom in a week, get on a fruit kick. You're in California so it should be easier than here, but I eat at least 3 fruits a day and sometimes more. This week it was papaya, plums, pineapple, and pears (don't ask). Delish. The papaya especially is good for the GI problems.

Oh, I've been on a fruit kick from the beginning (it may be why my GI problems aren't worse than they are). Fruit is the only thing that's guaranteed not to make my stomach turn, even now that it's settled down a little bit.

I hadn't known about the slow-metabolism thing, but it makes sense. The explanation my midwife gave was that it was a side-effect of all my internal organs beginning to rearrange and squish themselves.

Oh my gosh, when I was pregnant with the pickle I was a burping monster! At times it would manifest as one bite = one burp for an entire meal!
