Performing the sunnah of Fajr after the fardh due to a gas problem

Q: I have a lot of gas when I wake up in the morning for fajr. It is almost an everyday thing. Sometimes the feeling for breaking wind is strong and I pray the fardh prayer first then the sunnah 2 rakahs in case I miss the prayer if I have to break my wudu. Is that valid given my situation of having lots of gas in stomach?

A: Do the sunnat first.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
