E-pics Monday and the curse has come :(

TMI but I am so upset. Well YAY I moved our E-pics back so I would not be on my period during our session. But the lovely curse moved back a week so it would not be left out :(. We went shopping today and I bought a couple dresses because the outfit I wanted to wear (skinny jeans and a dressy top) is too tight. The skinny jeans make me feel even more bloated. I usually gain 9lbs this time of month and I have a really hard time taking pictures or feeling "beautiful" while I feel like crap and weigh and extra 10lbs. UGGH worst part is there is nothing I can do.


 


Thanks for listening to my pointless vent. You girls are great :)

oh no!  so sorry!  I know how you feel....I get SO bloated during my period.  Maybe you can try taking some anti-bloating stuff like Midol and Pamprin? They seem to help me.  And just cut back on salt. 


You're going to look fantastic!

Oh I will try. I am hoping the bloating will go down. I will be drinking lots of water and little salt. I love salt though, haha!

uh, Im just like you Sarah- 7 pound gain each time and killer cramps that drain allllllll the color from my face. I seem get my visits at the "special" times too (Jr Prom, graduation, sister's graduation, 21st bday, bridal shower) 


As a matter of fact (and I am so pissed) mine has gradually drifted back each month the last 3 months so that CONVENIENTLY, I will be visited on the day of the wedding, or it it really wants to be mean the day we leave for the honeymoon. I am really not sure which one to wish "please dont come till tomorrow" on now. How harsh is that, I mean ONE TIME she could let me just enjoy the day, lol. 600 mg Motrin, here I come!


I hate being a girl sometimes!

urgh Sarah I totally feel you. the first two days of my period I can barely button my jeans because I get soooo bloated.  But like mhanna said, hopefully 4 days in, it will be minimal.  Hang in there!


ps. Kristeen, thanks for the great tip. :-)

Wow Sarah. I thought I was the only one who gains like 10 lbs(seriously) in water. What helps me is dandelion. I tried Diurex and it gave me a headache. Dandelion is natural and has potassium so I think overall might be better(if you need to take it for more than a few days(like me)).


And like Pinky, I think I'm going to get mine right around our wedding day. Yay. Not. The stress of wedding planning has caused my period to move back like 6 days over the last few months. Crap!(sorry, did I say that out loud;-)


But I know what you mean about not feeling your most beyootiful when you've got all that water sloshing around. Hope the Diurex works. As for the Dandelion, I have to take like 5 or 6 capsules when I'm really bad. It does help.


Good luck!! You will look gorgeous no mater what. Post those e-pics!!

I used to have HORRIBLE back ache cramps and a HEAVY HEAVY 7 days.  I started getting the Depo shot and am now in heaven.  I get 1-2 light days every three months and virtually no cramps.  I know it is too late for Monday, but I swear by it.  I am afraid to go back to the old way when we decide we want to start having kids.

Paddy I am going to get some of that and try it also! I just took some Diurex so I will see how it works. I had no idea any of this stuff existed.


 


 


--PS-- I just ate a quart of ice cream by myself in two days! Wow I am going to regret that ha.

Maybe you can get a chance to do something fun just before the shot (e.g. listen, dance to upbeat music and have a glass of wine or two. Mind over matter  Wear your jeans unbuttoned and wear your cute top over to hide this secret. No one will notice. I always unbutton my jeans after a big meal.


You'll look beautiful.  Have fun

I have not had any problems with the Diurex! I think it is working! I went to try on more outfits today and it was great! I did not feel like a cow. So yeah I am excited that I bought a cute outfit to wear. I will post the e-pics once I get them!

make sure you drink a lot of water with the diurex - if you don't, your pee may be a little green.  yes, that was too much information but i have to warn you ;)

It's to get rid of bloating - it really helps a lot.


I'm so glad I was able to "reschedule" my friend.  I was supposed to have PMS during the wedding but I shifted it up by 2 weeks.  Now I'll have PMS and be bloated for my b-pics.  Oh well.
