If you've been exercising, muscle, can both make you "look" bigger and also heavier. Because muscle weighs more than fat. So you could just be gaining some muscle. Muscle also forms UNDER fat so it won't show outwardly but it's there. So I say keep doing what you're doing, lots of water, don't stress just be active and you'll be alright. Too much stress can also make you gain or lose weight, so don't get too worked up over the weight gain, it's a slow process.

BMI is BS. It does not take into account body type, muscle mass, or medical conditions. Ignore this. If you're worried about your weight, see a doctor.
