    Hi hon, it really varies person to person- you may just be retaining more fluid at the moment, in addition to the weight the baby is putting on.

    As long as you're eating healthy, it's weight the baby needs, don't worry :)

    I gained 1 stone in two weeks near the end, no reason was found for it other than it was just extra fluid. It will all go soon enough :)
