Excessive weight gain in first trimester

I've been gaining weight much faster than I should in the first trimester.  I'm in my 7th week, and have already gained 4 kgs (8.8 lbs). It's been at a rate of about 1 kg (2.2 lbs) per week for the last 4 weeks.  I was overweight before I fell pregnant, so it concerns me quite a bit.  The thing is, I have had a very poor appetite, and if anything, I've been eating less than usual.

Has anyone else experienced this, without having eaten a whole lot more than usual?  Or know what might cause it?  Could it indicate a problem with the baby/pregnancy?
