I have gained already a LOT of weight as well.. i am only 19 weeks i spoke with my doctor and she said that while it will hard to lose the weight after the baby comes it is not a big concern as long as your pregnancy is otherwise normal.  I do not eat excessively (in fact I feel like I am eating less than before I got pregnant) and what I am eating is not anymore unhealthy than what I was eating before.  I am not sure why I am gaining so much, it bothers me as well.  I saw that you mentioned always craving sweets... have you tried eating fruit instead of traditional sweets?  I would talk to your doctor about it though just to be safe.  :-)
