Not peeing and having a back ache could be a problem, are you able to talk to your doc about that?

other question is :
How is your salt intake?
I was retaining water and I switched to Mrs Dash products. I may never use salt again

It's only temporary bloat- it should go away after 1-2 days. If you aren't peeing I'd hold off on drinking water until you do- specially if you have had that much water and still haven't urinated.

there isn't anything you can do about retaining water and bloating during your period, and as much as it sucks it is common to gain 5-10 pounds during this time. and as long as you are peeing, even if it isn't as much i would continue drinking water, you can try reducing your salt intake, but bloating seems to be just one of those things that is going to happen to most of us

During my TOM I notice that I pee less and hold onto almost everything I drink. What I do is up my water while i'm on, it doesn't really help with the bloat or water retention but as my TOM is finishing it really helps flush the excess water out.

I agree with repto, there isn't much you can do about retaining water, it's just a sign that you're healthy. Your body needs to hold on to extra fluid to prepare for losing blood. I usually ignore my weigh ins during that time since they are usually everywhere.

Don't stress over it. We all face it and there's nothing we can do about it except hold strong to what you've been doing and stay on plan. Don't let the sight of a gain on the scale knock you off plan. Keep drinking water and it'll be done with soon.

I know how. I've been either pregnant or nursing since Feb of 2008 and thus have only had one period in that time... that seems to take care of it for me.
