Hi Jeff,
Ever since I got pregnant 2 years ago, I've had horrible gas, all day long and worse at night. I figured this was just a normal pregnancy thing, but when I stopped breastfeeding and the gas never went away I started trying to figure it out. I've been vegetarian/vegan for 6 years and never had lots of gas except the first 2 weeks I converted.

The first thing I tried to cut out was gluten, which I realized makes me bloated, angry, and tired. Then I cut out soy products because they make me bloated for 3 days (I'm guessing maybe that's the estrogen like effect?). But still nothing was helping with the gas. 4 days ago I decided to cut out beans just to see what would happen and the situation is much much better. But now I'm going into denial because beans are my absolute favorite food!

What can I do? Is beano safe to take? I'm using the cron-o-meter and get to 100% or more for everthing daily (plus b12 and d supplement), so nutrition is not really an issue. Is there a reason that pregnancy would cause all these symtoms? (I didn't have the gluten or soy problems before either)

I exercise 40 mins 4 times a week, and am not overweight. I am 5'10" and 165 with a large frame and very muscular, but aiming for 155 or 160. I know being overweight and inactive can cause intestinal distress but that shouldn't be what's causing mine.

Please help!! :)
