Why does my tummy get bigger throughout the day, but when I wake up it's flat?

I take probiotics, oil of oregano, olive leaf, and other supplements to help with gut health. I don't eat bread, and less than 30g of carbs a day. Also, no dairy products other than the cream I put in my coffee. Nothing processed either. I just don't understand why my stomach is so much larger in the evening than in the morning. I figure a little bloating (for lack of a better word) is okay, but I feel like this is too much.

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
You may have food allergies you are unaware of. I suggest that you get blood tests done for food allergies. Endometriosis can also be a potential cause.
Below I have pasted a link to an article that tells how Endometriosis can effects your digestive system.
