i'm currently taking 3 different supplements (1) pregnacare, a pregnancy tablet that most women in UK take, (2) Calcium Sandoz, a calcium efervescent that my doc in Switzerland prescribed because Pregnacare doesnt contain calcium, and (3) Balance PL, a protein powder that my doc here in India prescribed to mix with a glass of milk twice a day (she knows about the other two supplements i take). I consume each of these supplements at a different time during the day, so that they don't interfere with each other.
Adding up all the values from all three supplements as prescribed, i feel i'm having an overdose of some nutrients, and wanted to know if that can be harmful. I eat quite healthy during the day, in additional to a few snacks.

i'm almost 30 weeks now. i'm only 5"1' and have gone from 50kg to 60kg (10kg weight gain).
Baby was estimated to be around 1.2kg at my recent scan a few days ago.
Thank you for your valuable advice :-)
