How do you handle your gassiness?

I am more gassy since having kids. At home I just do it, but at work I can't. I get horrible stomach aches from holding it in. Anyone else out there like me? Literally, I feel the gas bubbles going up and down, and trying to get out? It may not be smelly gas, but "ladies" just don't bust out in public and at work. Do those charcol pills work? I eat pretty well, but do notice that it does not seem to matter much. Help.

  • Have you been tested for food sensitivities?
    It is common for people to become more sensitive to dairy as we age; try eliminating dairy for a couple of weeks.
