Hi.. normal weight gain during pregnancy is 10kg. Weight gain about 25kg is on higher side. Sudden gain of weight usually causes pigmentation around the neck , armpits and groin area. It can ba a part of acanthosis nigricans. Better consult a dermatologist for reconfirming the diagnosis and proceed with the treatment
