This is the same situation with me. I am 37 weeks pregnant and I am gaining approx 2kg every 2 weeks. I was also bit over weight since start of pregnancy (69kg) and now it's around 80. I also don't have any issues and don't even eat much sugar. I eat healthy. I checked with doctor and she said everything is fine. I reconfirmed with other gynecologist as well and she also confirmed there is nothing to worry

Since all reports are normal there is no medical worry. At times even when we feel we eat healthy a little balancing may be needed in your diet plan. You should discuss this with a nutritionist so that it can help you even in the post delivery phase.
