Had a period since?: Have you had a period since November??? If not, you may be pregnant! If periods normal, bloating has many causes. Depends on location in abdomen, timing with food, if localized or all over, what makes it better and worse, if it's associated with pain, any change in stools, nausea, vomiting, fever, etc. Associated chest pain would suggest gallbladder problems. See a doctor for full exam.
