Weight gain - should I be worried?

I'm 30+3 and although I vowed not to I just weighed myself.

I started at 187lb with a bmi of 26, which was overweight.

I'm now 208lb blush

Should I be worried? I don't think I've been over eating, but I know I'm eating the wrong sort of foods. I still have nausea and sometimes just the thought of peeling a potato or cooking chicken makes me vomit, so I just opt for convenience or a takeaway.

I don't see the mw for another 4 weeks and don't want to bother her with stupid questions but i don't know if I should be worried by the amount I've gained.

I'm 36 weeks and have put in 2 stone BMi was 27. I don't think 20lbs is much really. Most if it will be baby, placenta and water. Just try to eat sensibly for the next few weeks if you can. Mine is all bump and I know that it comes off quickly after baby with breast feeding.
