I'm 32 weeks also and I probably have gained about 10 lbs. It fluctuates though. I lose a few, gain a few, from week to week. My doctors aren't worried because I'm plus-sized to begin with. They only want me to gain 10-15 lbs through the whole pregnancy. I don't think there should be anything to be concerned about. It sounds like a healthy weight gain.
