Sounds pretty normal. From your pre pregnancy weight you should he able to gain 10-15 more lbs and be fine.

I've gained over 50 pounds already and I'm only 29 weeks! Could be more.. Haven't weighed myself sense my last doctors appointment... Ha I stopped because it makes me feel like poo... It don't matter how hard I tried I just kept gaining and gaining! I ask my doctor at every appointment why I'm gaining sooooo much and she always tells me it's fine, some women just gain alot during pregnancy... Now I'm on bed rest so I can only imagine how much more I'm going to gain... So depressing but I think about having my little boy and then I think of how much he's worth it... I guess I'm just going to have to work my butt off after he's born!
