Hi All
I am 25+4 weeks and in the last 3 days i have put on 1 kg! overall, i have already put on 13 kgs.
My concern is pre-eclampsia, which i had with my first pregnancy. My blood pressure has gone up and is on the high borderline. also i have removed my rings cos they are now too tight - did not want to have them cut off like last time. also, i can only wear trainers now.

Question: Is rapid weight gain a sign of oncoming pre-eclampsia? should I be worried?

It can be a sign of lots of things - swelling associated with PE or weight gain associated with gestational diabetes - or nothing at all.

Go and see your midwife / GP pronto, though, to be on the safe side.
