Are you sure it’s not the clomid?  My daughter was on that and had all kinds of awful side effects.

Branded Names: Clomid

Side Effects:

allergic reactions like skin rash, itching or hives, swelling of the face, lips, or tongue
breathing problems
changes in vision
fluid retention
nausea, vomiting
pelvic pain or bloating
severe abdominal pain
sudden weight gain

Can you take it to your tailor for a rush corset back alteration? That’s what I’d do.

Yep, I’d add a corset back

Also, clomid is FAMOUS for causing weight gain. 🙁

There are some not so safe routes such as wraps but I would just into a hot bath of Epsom salt, it will help some.

Clomid causes abdominal swelling for some people, do you think that’s it?

can you stop taking the clomid?  And lower your salt, no alchohol or anything that might add extra water retention.

 You could take diurex to get rid of some of the water weight

You could take midol because one of its uses is to reduce bloating. Worth a shot. Could it be that the new underwear is bulky? maybe get some tighter spanx? Idk if that would help, but maybe with everything else too?

Drink a ton of water and do an IT Works wrap before your wedding. the water will help you pass the bloating and the wrap will help you slim 1-2 inches To fit into the dress.
