You need about 4 - 6 weeks before you'll notice a real difference with FODMAP, your body needs to recover and start healing, and of course it all becomes habit so is much easier. Please stick with it!
Gluten free breads are... well most of them taste awful. I'll find out the names of the ones I like. Genius is a good brand but the bread falls to bits. Avoid all rolls too; you could use them as a weapon if you throw them at someone.
I've got to go back on a strict regime, all I crave right now is sugar and sweet things and more sugar. Not ideal with Christmas looming but when you look six months pregnant with bloat you need to sort it out before people start rubbing your belly for good luck ( I've put on 5kg in the past two weeks; if this continues I'm growing a beard and playing santa!)
All I can recommend is make sure you drink plenty of water. It'll help flush through, and of course all that peeing helps distract you from concentrating on all the things in the kitchen that you can't eat.
Wonky: we got up, made tea, went back to bed, not one of us is keen to get up; it's grim out there!
