    What causes bloating in the lower part of the stomach?

    I'm just now getting over a cold and I weighed myself and noticed 4lbs I gained and my lower part of my stomach is pooched out. My period isn't for a couple of weeks and my diet hasn't changed much. I just got an expresso machine and have played with it alot (had lots of shots). I also took a pregnacy test and I'm not prego.

    Gas, water retention, oral contraceptives and needing to have a bowel movement can cause bloating. A lot of salt, caffeine (espresso!), artificial sweetener and dairy can also cause bloating.
