Sorry no advice but just wanted to let you know this happens to me too.
The bloat usually goes around my stomach and can start about 3 days before ovulation and lasts for about 2 days after so 5 in total. My weight can increase from 1kg to 3kg. I also get really bad cramps and the pain sits low and alternates sides each month.
I have been TTC number 3 for well over 18 months so I am very in tune with my cycle. It has to be hormones for me as my diet is usually consistent.
Strangely though I don't get too much bloating when I actually have my period but still get bad cramps.
I'm off to the GP tomorrow for a check up so I'll mention this to her and see what she says.
Yes, sounds the same. I dont get bloated during period either. most online stuff is about bloating during periods.
Please do ask your GP and come back and let us know what they say!
