Yep went through this recently.. it was the first time ever gaining that much weight for me so I almost fainted from shock! I feel less bloated now and my stomach isn't sticking out as much, but I am scared to weigh myself again lol!
I seriously thought I was alone in this. I've gained up to 12 lbs in the week before my period. I can feel myself blowing up like a beach ball! I also get very bloated and gassy. It's sooo uncomfortable. Once my period does finally come, I sort of deflate, and do so rapidly.

One of my PMS symptoms is severe gas. So on top of an already bloated, crampy day - I double the fun with a dose of gas bloat and cramps! And if that wasn't frustrating enough... I only actually have a period every 3-4 months... but PMS - EVERY month like clockwork!
So yep... feeling your pain.. literally!

I literally feel like a balloon & then thankfully I slowly deflate after my period, but very slowly...it takes about a week to lose all the extra weight & to get over my PMS & pains. It is truly awful and I feel horrible, but I do like the deflating part in the end. :)

So, who else has ever put on 6 pounds in the course of the week before their period? I honestly feel so crampy and bloated right now, but my period refuses to come. Blah!!!! Normally I'll go up 2 or 3 pounds, but this is RIDICULOUS! I haven't changed my tracking numbers, cause I'm hoping it'll disappear by next week! *sigh*
