1. Learn Some Fart Jokes
    By the time you’re 18 weeks pregnant, you know all too well that gassiness is going to be a fact of life for the next few months. The pregnancy hormone progesterone, causes your muscles to relax which slows digestion allowing more time for gas buildup. And those relaxed muscles make it a lot harder to control said gas. Eating smaller meals throughout the day and avoiding gas-inducing foods will help, but you’re probably going to have to learn to live with farting and belching in public. Just remember flatulence is funny. Fart humor has been around for centuries so embrace the slapstick and learn a few jokes to (ahem) clear the air.
