Hard to say: It is hard to draw conclusions when there are minor changes in PMS symptoms from one cycle to another. If you think you might be pregnant check then check a home pregnancy test. They are cheap, reliable and available at any pharmacy. Birth control can be very helpful at decreasing PMS symptoms. If your bloating continues schedule an evaluation
