I gained 3 pounds in one day

I don't know how this happened. I weighed myself this morning and was 105 (which is already a pound or two higher than usual.). Then this afternoon I weighed myself and was 108! I did have a large snack when I got home.. but I do all the time when I get home, and never has it made the scale jump so much. I have been drinking a lot of water, could it be that? Could I really have gained 3 whole pounds? Also: I have my period, but it's really light so I don't think it makes a difference

You never weigh yourself in the afternoon, you have blood from your period and all that you have eaten throughout the day in your body. When you poop, a lot of that weight comes out. I'd weigh yourself tomorrow morning and you'll see you're back to around 105
