going way up north to the Canadian border for some snowmobiling, spa and to watch the NE Patriots win the superbowl.
 
My problem lately is that I am super gassy at night and we are renting a big house with 3 other couples but the house has I think two large rooms for sleeping w/multiple beds.  My farts are rather lound and rumbly.  I have laid off the fiber cereal and that is helping some but still, when I have to fart and can't it hurts bad and then builds up and mixes w/my poo so that I have a symphony of destruction when I have a bm.
 
lately my bm's have been getting darker and darker (was yellow light brown, now more normal brown color) and more fully formed though still kinda stringy, I go about 2 times a day, once when I wake up and once when I get home from work (about 6:30am and 6:30pm, hey that is kind of weird....)
 
I've tried phayzyme but it did not help me.  Is there something I can start taking now?  We are leaving Fri am and will come home on Monday.
 
I have no idea of the layout of the house, last year the bathroom was right next to the kitchen (we stayed at  a different place) and they guys were up late playing cards in the kitchen and I was in so much pain holding it in (I know it's stupid, everyone farts but........I don't want to be the gassy girl!)  Plus I like everyone who is going but am not real close.
 
Any ideas?  Thanks, I don't want to stress now and then have problems.  I am bringing kaopectate in case of any emergencies.

Hmmm that's a tricky one. How many Phyzames were you taking? I take two at a time and it really helps. Can you do the ole slip outside when you feel gas coming on?

By the way...sounds like a great trip!

lol, I don't have a dog, maybe I can borrow one?

I have done the going outside saying I forgot something in the car thing, but I wake up usually twice a night to go pee and then have a little farting concert when I lay down and I usually can't sleep that well around other people so I know I will be laying in farting pain all night long. I will try to take two phayzyme and see how that helps this, I will pick some up tonite or tomorrow and try it out. Maybe I'll just blame my husband, but I know i'll be too nervous to fart in front of other people.
