    I don’t bloat but my boobs get significantly bigger and hurt a lot.

    So freaking much! Like, to the point that pants that are normally loose are too tight, meaning I have to go up a whole size. It’s so gross!

    I try to avoid salty foods and drink lots of water but it doesn’t seem to help 🙁

    I dont bloat but I get extremely severe cramps that go from the middle of my back, my stomach and even down to my knees. Its terrible. I also have to poop more but never feel bloated beforehand.

    I’m in the same boat as @FlamingRedHair.  My boobs get so unbelievably sore that time of the month that it hurts to walk around WITHOUT a bra on (TMI?).

    @mrs.peters.to.be: Yeah. I can’t wear like any of my bras except one during that time, otherwise “the cup runneth over” as I like to say.

    I just told BF that I hate my “pooch” and he said he had never heard that term. I’ve got the pooch and the sore boobs.

    It depends on how successfully I can control my urge to eat salt. 🙁 Usually it’s fine, I’ve never had to bring out the “fat pants” due to bloating.

    @FlamingRedHair: Same here! Sorry if this is TMI, but I have to swat DH away from them because it hurts too much for him to touch them!

    I notice a small pooch but nothing that causes me to not wear my regular jeans.. & I can only hope that my boobs look bigger on those days (i dont notice it if they do). haha!

    I have started bloating more now that I’m on Nuvaring.  My pants feel tight during my whole period.

    @jayce:Yeah. Men just seem to be entranced by anthing that round and womanly on their woman. It hurts physically, but you could always take it as a compliment too.
