Red Raspberry Leaf tea will actually kick start your period so that you can at least get it over with and start the damn thing already!  A trip to the sauna will help leach out some of the bloating, but if your anything like I am, I take on water like the freakin Titanic the week before, then I hit the proverbial iceburg and all that water clears the decks in less that 24 hours!

I love Diurex gel capsuls – they sell them in the feminine hygeine aisle… 

You could also schedule a last minute “body wrap” or do one at home… my friend does an at home version in her bathroom – shower on hot hot hot to make lots of awesome steam then wrapped in hot towels.  Just be SUPER careful about dehydration.

And there is the obvious – drink a ton of water and avoid salt like the plague.

Water. Lots of water. Immediately cut your intake of salt. Pee the bloat away!

@puggleperson:  DON’T EAT ANYTHING WITH SODIUM!!!  Seriously, no salt at all.  Not even a little.

The only method I’ve used that works 100% of the time is to only eat lettuce and carrots for at least 3 days straight.  Not the healthiest thing in the world, but you’ll drop 3-10 lbs. of water weight.

My wedding is in 3 days too!!!!! Yay for us!!! I drink this tea that is supposed to help with water weight…but other than that I have no suggestions bc I’ve never really been able to get rid of the bloat.

@puggleperson:  Gosh that sucks!  I worry about this too.  Mr. Flow for me is NEVER regular.  So it is always an unwanted surprise…..and like you I gain a horrible amount of water.  And then I just feel like an enormous bloated cow!!  I sure do wish I could convince the doctors to remove the nursery and leave the playpen…..??  I keep telling them to just take that junk out and throw it in the dumpster, no luck though.  I am 43, and over it ALREADY!!  I swear it gets worse the older you get!!


The water pills do work, also like PP said drink lots of water.  Try not to freak out too much, you will still have a wonderful wedding day!

I was just at the gyno two days ago asking about bloating. Told her I drank lots of water… She said dont overdo it on your period. Your body hangs on to it & can’t get rid of it fast enough so it could cause more. I was shocked. I thought we drank to flush. But no. Drink usual amounts.

She suggested Midol for bloat. I forgot about Midol!! She says taken 3-4 days before period can help with it a lot. Start tonight!  

FIBER….always helps me. Get the stuff to add to juice, etc. Always makes me feel leaner! 

I’ve heard about the red raspberry tea too.
