    Distended Stomach/Abdomin; Causes?

    So here's a question... What would cause my stomach to get distended? Is there something to look out for other than the typical reason like the need to due the bowel program & weight gain? Maybe I did gain weight though I haven't been weighed in quite a while. After doing the bowel program my stomach looks better & is less distended but will get bigger & more distended as a 4 or 5 before I do the bowel program again. Thoughts?
