Cut back on the salt and drink water – I am a small girl and I gain 5 pounds of water weight during my period and then it drops right back off. I’m an awful bloater.

It’s not unheard of for me to bloat 5 pounds right before my period and on the first day.

amanda.hearon:  I gain exactly 5 pounds every time I have my period. So I am pretty sure you’re normal! It will pass!

I thought it was something normal. but if you want something that fits you should try a diet

I get it all the time I usually gain 2-4 lbs right before my period starts and then drop it when I start.

It’s quite usual for your breasts to enlaarge during your period, this may be causing your dress to feel tighter. Don’t stress, leave it a few days and try it on again.

Do the Jillian Michael Dandelion tea cleanse for the week prior. You just drink the tea juice mixture for 7 days in addition to eating healthy. It helps me de-bloat and lose 4-5 lbs before a big event.

I had my second to last fitting on my period, and my dress was too tight on my stomach and hips (it was creasing).  I was freaking out, so was very carefull about what I ate.  It turns out on my last fitting my dress was TOO BIG!  We ended up having to do a little bit of last minute alteration work to make the dress smaller and pick up the dress even closer to the wedding.  A little bit of extra stress, but it was perfect on my wedding day.

I tend to add about 10lbs during my period but it just magically leaves….I hate it. I have hope that you will be just fine but I agree about increasing water just to play it safe! Best of luck!
