I have been doing really well with weight loss the past couple of weeks, period is due in a couple of days and I have gained 5 pounds......please someone tell me this is normal.

It's very common for me to gain up to 10lbs around my period. I always up my water intake and find drinking peppermint tea helps

The last couple of months I've been weighing daily and I have notice a gain around the time of my period of about 3 lbs (I currently weigh just over 10 stone). I think the bigger you are the bigger the gain due to your period.

3lb for me and look 5m pregnant. I never know how woman manage to cope with uniform when you bloat so much. Trousers that for fine one week will get nowhere near the next.

2lbs every time! It shoots up the day before my period then slowly gets back to normal over the next 4 days.

My belly is always huge but right after period ends it goes completely back to normal. Couldn’t do jeans up last week but can this week
