Lately these past few days I've been eating a lot.
More than I normally have, I'm thinking it might be because I've been on a holiday from school since Wednesday, so I've been cooking possibly out of boredom. But I've also felt hungrier too. This has only happened since around Wednesday...what could be the cause of this suddenly?
I don't believe it could be a pregnancy because my last period was at the beginning of October, and I think it might be too soon even if I was pregnant...since it's nearing the end of the month, could it be because I might be expecting my period within the next week or two?

EDIT: I just realized this, this might of been posted in the wrong forum, if it belongs in the general health one, itd be great if you could move it

Really, it is unlikely that this is due to pregnancy. While increased appetite can be a "sign" of pregnancy, these so-called signs don't show up until much later, and really aren't too reliable. It is more likely that you are experiencing hormone fluxuations and the like.

(Not to mention, if you are home for long periods of time, you are much more prone and able to eat more than if you were out or at school)
