Ridiculous bloating and sudden weight gain

This time last week I weighed 10st 4lbs. This morning I weighed 10st 9lbs!! my belly is so bloated I look about 5 months pregnant. Not due to start a period until next week. What's more weird is that this week (since I morphed into a whale) I've been eating mega healthy in a bid to feel better - generally I feel better but my belly is sensitive, massive and sore. I've also been farting a lot. I'm currently taking omeprazole for acid and lactalose for constipation - could this have caused such a huge surge in weight (and belly size?!)

I tend to get quite bloated before a period. It may be a combination of hormones causing the bloating. Also does your healthy diet mean you're eating a lot more fibre? It can take the body a little while to adjust to the extra fibre and this can cause wind and tummy bloating.

Do you drink coffee? I like it but try to avoid it near my period as I've found it also causes bloating.

Yes lots of fibre in new diet and I drink TONS of coffee (although I am trying to phase it out)
