In brief: Too much

Normal weight gain during pregnancy is around 25 lbs +/- 5 lbs.
If you started on the heavy side, it is even less. Although, your weight gain sounds somewhat excessive, there may not be anything wrong with you or your baby. Make sure that all the parental labs are normal.You might want to consult a dietitian to try to curb it.
