Anyone else get really bloated and uncomfortable and put on weight during period? If so, how much?

Yep. As much as 3-4 pounds. It's awful.

Yep! I'm normally between a size 12 and 14, today (first day of period) I'm wearing a size 16 pair of leggings that are uncomfortably tight angry

Makes a noticeable difference... bloated so everything feels right, water retention so one and a half kg heavier. Also usually spotty and glum. Not the best combo!

Yes, I put my elesticated PJ bottoms on as soon as I get home at this time of the month. Sometimes the weight gain is only a couple of pounds, but other months I can gain a whole half stone.
