Drink more water- believe it or not too much fibre can make you constipated. the body needs water to move the fibre along.

:o0 :o0 :o0 :o0 :o0 :o0 :o0 :o0 :o0 :o0 :o0 Sorry to make light of it Dolly, but I nearly choked on my tea reading that, soo funny! I think it's the fact that you used the word TOXIC! :o0 :o0 :o0 :o0 I was told once that if your eating fruit or veg with a emal you should eat it first bacuse if you let it sit on top of a sandwich or meat and veg it sits in your stomach for a while and ferments to cause this Toxic gas you speak of. Get a cork! :o0

Dolly I'm with you on this. DH got into bed last night and said "I see we have natural gas heating in the bed now"! It was pretty bad. The word he used to describe it was "ripe". Maybe cut down on the fruit just a little and yes drink loads of water if you can (I've gone off it!). And remember to tell DH it's the hormones every time he complains!

Poor Dolly, it was funny though :o0 I used to get very bloated too, I found that yogurts made it worse, and yes as someone else said if you eat fruit, don't eat it just after a meal, do it in between, and don't eat too much of it either. And drink lots and lots of water. I drink a glass of prune juice every night and find it keeps constipation at bay. I drink quite a bit of fruit juice too, and I eat soda bread, like the brennans or the McCormacks one. It should ease off though as time goes by. My DH can't complain about my farts though, as he's always at it :o0 hope you feel better soon :wv
