Distended stomach and abdomen

I am 40 years old and look about 7-8 months pregnant.  I have had every test you can imagine and now my doctor just thinks I am crazy.  My weight started at about 148 and now it is at 174, that is in a 2 month time span.  I am exhausted and stressed out.  I exercise 3-4 times a week, stay active with 3 kids and a job.  Plus I have taken my calories to around 1700 a day.  Nothing is working.  I have went from a size 7 to a size 14.  I feel like my body is out of control.  My OB/GYN told me that is was just because I was getting older and my metabolism is slowing down.  I think she is wrong.  There is something wrong.  I do not hurt or feel bad in any way at all.  I am so uncomfortable in my own skin.  Now I am scheduled to see an endocrinologist in a month.  
Has anyone else found anything that this might be???
