My stomach is HUGE and I'm only 10 weeks pregnant. I think it is mostly air. I'm crazy constipated and feel just awful hours after every meal... to the point where I'm just afraid to eat anything. Salad, eggs, legumes, any carbohydrate, and fruits give me lots of gas. Meat constipates me. I'm lactose intolerant. What the heck is left? Vegetable soup, nuts and seeds, and non cruciferous/non-leafy veggies for nine months? I'm worried I have candida too since I know progesterone is a more conducive environment for candida, and I definately have bloating any time I have carbs. Any ideas? Seems too restrictive to cut out all carbs when pregnant... and I don't eat white flour (we use Ezekiel bread) or sugar very often at all- but I'm getting desperate.
