Hi MJF

There are several over-the-counter medications you can take and although most might be safe, but you should ask your doctor or pharmacist first in case they could negatively impact your pregnancy.

Also, try to eat foods that cut down on the possibility of getting gas - this list may help: http://www.livestrong.com/article/320694-list-of-foods-that-dont-cause-gas/

We hope you feel better soon,
