I’m five months pregnant.
Okay, not really but I sho nuff look 5 months pregnant. Even with my “foundation garment” I have a definite pooch. I’ve been eating pretty good 6 days a week and I’m down nearly 12 pounds, so it can’t be that I’m just porking up. This morning I realized what the problem is: I’m bloated.
Now for some of you, this is a normal occurrence, but for me this is taking some getting used to. Prior to having a baby, I never experienced this nuisance called bloating. I never had to deal with carrying extra water weight for a few days a month. I never had to deal with random breakouts on my face. I had my fair share of
bitchiness mood swings, but that was about it.
For the past few months, however, I’ve definitely noticed a pattern of bloatedness. And me no likey! I have to hold my stomach in extra tight and I have to carefully choose the most flattering of my already feeble wardrobe.
This whole having a period thing is a total drag. I’m so hoping my “lighter period” side effects kick in soon. I’m not cut out for all of this.
Do you get bloaty once a month? How do you combat the puffiness?
