  • Having a healthy diet and drinking a gallon of water a day will help a LOT with the bloating! I can't remember the specific reason for bloating, but not eating right and being dehydrated play a big role. Eat lots of fruits and veggies, lean meats, whole grains and limit white flour and sugar and unhealthy fats (like butter, vegetable oil, etc).

    Good luck!

  • Bloating comes from the fact the liner of your uterus is slowly peeling off.
