My native language is Vietnamese. And In Vietnamese, when you say

She bombs a lot when she is pregnant (saying in Vietnamese ways).

It literally means "She farts a lot..."

Would "to bomb" mean "to fart" in English?

  • Did you look up "to bomb" in a dictionary? What did you find? – stangdon Jan 5 '18 at 16:13

To bomb isn't normally used that way, but there is the expression

drop a bomb 3. (Britain, slang, euphemistic) To fart. Let's say you're at school and you accidentally drop a bomb in class. Try coughing or dropping a book to cover up the sound. - 2004, Bart King, Chris Sabatino, The Big Book of Boy Stuff, page 129

It's not normally used in the plural, though.
