Bloating

Last month I had a period that looked more like heavy spotting. It lasted only two days and my breasts remained very swallen and sore, I put on almost two kilos and a general sensation of being bloated accompanied me for the whole month. Today is the second day of my period. Heavier but going to finish within the night, I can tell. I still have that extra weight on (I know it's not much but being very thin I notice and suffer every light changing), in spite of the fact that I haven't eaten more, and my breasts are still huge, sore and heavy. My eyes hurts, I feel tired and sleepy and have difficulties focusing on things.
Has this happened to any of you? When the periods starts to be so short it means I'm getting "closer"?
I don't know whether I dread the moment or I'm looking forward to it...

Just wanted to let you know you are not alone. I'm in the PMS phase right now and have the same symptoms. I felt better during the first half of the month. Really don't have an answer to your question about light periods meaning getting closer to it. I'm 49 1/2 so the end should not be too far away.
