Any idea why my podge seems swollen on my right side but not the left?? I noticed it last night, I looked pregnant. It is that time of month though, could this be it?

Hi there, - I had a swelling on the left side of my rather fat belly and it turned out to be a hernia, - more common if you've had an abdominal op. such as a c section in that region.

My swollen bit hurt and I could push it back in, then it would reappear, so if that sounds anything like what you've got, pop to the GP - its a fairly simple keyhole op. to sort it out.

On the other hand (having created alarm with hernia talk grin), I'm sure it could well be something to do with your cycle.
