23 weeks, suddenly beginning to pick up weight
I am 23 weeks pregnant and up till now I have not picked up any weight. This past week though I have been putting on between 100 and 200g a DAY. It is not swelling or anything like that, but is this sort of weight gain normal? Will it slow down again?

There can be little weight gain early on and then this increases later. Try to follow a healthy diet and don't overeat.
