Thanks for your response! I get that feeling you described, too. I had to chuckle at your alien reference to it..lol.
You are right about eating smaller meals. I have found that to be true. I find it's best to spread it out over the course of the day in smaller portions.
I can always tell when I get the bloat though my period will begin within a couple days. I have had a never ending period since Apr. 21. I think in the past 6 weeks I have only had 2 weeks I did not have any type of bleeding. Do you notice this bloat worse before your period? Have you too, experienced any irregular bleeding as I...........I call my period lately the never ending period. It seems as if I only get 7 days without and then it begins spotting again for a few days and then 7 days nothing till it all starts over.
Oh the joys of peri m huh? We must keep laughing to keep from crying huh? lol. It sounds as though you do that. Have a good one
