It varies for me, but its usually a full pant size.  I probably wouldn’t have noticed this, but today is the full pant size day and your thread made me chuckle.

Oh wow, a full pant size? That sucks!

I usually notice it dramatically for a couple days before my periods starts and then it goes away around the last day of my period, to a couple days after. I certainly notice my pants being tighter. . . and my tummy sticking out more and seeming fatter (like I can pinch a bunch more around tummy and hips). Blecccchhh. I suspect is causes a 1/2 inch fluctuation in my waistline, actually… don’t know how it affects my weight since I don’t own a scale!

For me it starts really subtly just after ovulation, then really hits me around 2-3 days before my first day of my period. It’s usually totally gone by the second day of my period though.

I don’t really bloat, but I also don’t eat most of the foods assoicated with bloating and I drink lots of water and exercise regularly.

i start getting bloated about 3-4 days before my period. my periods are short so the total time i’m bloated is probably about 7-8 days. i also exercise regularly (pilates reformer 3x week) but that doesn’t help with bloating.

I bloat pretty much the day before. Once my period is here, I’m actually fine.

I bloat for the first two days of my period.  I dont’ actually go up a size but I feel like I’m about to burst.  Then it goes away as quickly as it came on.  I want to live in elastic waist pants those two days.
