Having constant extreme bloating, taking it as a good sign but looking for any tips/hints on controlling it... At least a little! Much appreciated!

Salt doesn't help bloating, but your body is working hard on increasing its blood volume right now. Along with the extra fluids you need, you'll need some salt to keep everything balanced. So don't be too hard on yourself when you start craving the salty stuff!

the crazy bloating over here too. I look like I've just eaten a massive meal - all day and it gets loads worse in the evening.
