I started logging my body measurements for weight loss and soon realised just how insane my boobs swell during PMS - care to share relief suggestions?

Literally, between last Saturday and today, I've gained 2.5 inches on my bust. But I've lost inches on my waist and hips, so all the water retention (I'm guessing?) is focused on my chest. My back isn't hurting, but I feel soooo sluggish and just want to curl up and knit or internet. My diet for the past month has been totally clean and I'd lost 8 pounds in 3 weeks prior to the PMS onslaught.
What I'd like to know is if the above PMS boob 'swelling' is common enough? Are there any foods/exercise/anything that works for you? I had been using those Walk At Home DVDs as a means of easing into exercise, but even the lowest 1 Mile walk is so uncomfortable with these tits of doom.
I've always known my boobs swelled during PMS, but this is the first time I've had measurements to fall back on. I'm a bit blown away by 2.5 inches in a week! Is such a 'severe' increase a cause for concern?
