Try not to let it get you down! As long as you & LO are doing well that's the important part. Not everyone gains weight "by the book" during pregnancy.
At my 34 week appointment I had gained 35lbs (pretty much the same as you) and I was a bit overweight pre-pregnancy. My OB isn't concerned & LO seems to be doing just fine. I definitely feel like a whale too (plus everyone keeps telling me how HUGE I am... haha!
I've become a firm believer that your body will gain what its going to gain assuming you don't spend your days eating boxes of cookies and pounds of cake. BFF gained 50+ with LO1 and said she thought it had a lot to do with diet because she often gave into cravings and used the idea that she was pregnant and could eat what she wants. With LO2 she ate a lot more healthy and exercised and she still gained almost 50.
FTM here so I don't have any experience but I'm 37 weeks and up about 30. It's kind of a hard pill to take but at this point I'm not even going to worry about it.
Chin up! Try to eat as healthy as you can and then you know you did the best you could. With DD #1 I gained 40 pounds by week 34.....
