Complety normal.. I go up myself at the time as well about 4 to 5 pounds. It will come back down after your period so just ride it out and hang in there ...

I don't gain. I've actually started losing again and TOM is due any day now.

I can gain anywhere between 2 and 8 pounds Watch your salt intake and sodium (from packaged foods especially) carefully the week before you are due to begin and you'll likely see an improvement.

I used to gain quite a bit too 5-7#... Now though TOM is not often so I don't get the fluctuations and when I do I don't know why because I don't know when TOM is coming around ... Ah the wonders of perimenopause ...It's not so bad I actually like it, PMS is rare now ...

I try not to weigh during the beginning of my period (which is now!) and weigh either in the middle or end (depending whether it is a two day wonder period or an eight day monster period from ****). Sometimes I gain, sometimes I lose, other times I stay the same. I never worry if I gain, my stomach feels like a bowl of wobbly jelly so I know it's just water retention.

I am soooooo looking forward to the menopause!!! Too bad I am only 33!!!!

I don't usually gain, I just stop losing, If there's any gain, it will be only 1lb, and it generally drops off after the first day. I have a lot of trouble losing in the two weeks leading up to my period though. I'm on BC though so my periods are very regulated. I'm sure if I was not on BC I would have it a lot worse!

I don't usually gain any weight that that tom, i either just don't lose that week, or lose less than usual. I think it all depends on the individual, I've never been one of those people you hear who complain about water weight gain and bloating.

Oh man, I gain during ovulation (may be 1-2 kg (2-5 lb) and then again at TTOM (up to 3kg - 6.5lb!!!) so my weight graph is a damn yoyo, v. hard to keep motivated . Evening Primrose oil is good for bloating as well as drinking all your water and avoiding sodium.
So you're by no means strange, don't worry!!

I don't remember how much weight I gained last TOM but I gained 6 inches in my belly. Two days later I had dropped 4 inches and I forgot to check it again.
