Weight normal?

So I'm142lbs and in my 27th week. Is that normal/good to be that weight? I feel as if I shouldn't weigh that much yet.

How much did you weigh before?
My pre-pregnancy weight was 118lbs

You definitely need to slow it down. Watch what you are eating. No pasta, only eat bread every once in a while. And non water drinks should be watered down.
You've gained 24lbs and the usual recommended weight gain range is 25-30lbs

Gaining more weight and at a faster rate can cause complications for both you and baby. You risk getting diabetes, and having more complications during delivery.

I agree with her ^
I mean unless your doctor has any concerns you shouldnt worry about it
Every body is different and sometimes ive seen girls that are pregnant and eat healthy and they still gain alot of lbs and theyre babies are totally healthy :)

I've gone from 120 lbs to 150 lbs.   I gained about the same with my first pregnancy and lost it all within 2 weeks of the birth. It was mostly water retention I think.  If your drs aren't concerned then don't worry.
142 lbs was my weight three weeks ago from my last appointment. Curious, I weighed myself this morning and I weigh 142.6 lbs. So I'm mainttaining it at that number. My doctor hasn't said anything about my weight being too high, but should I ask them anyways when I go in on the 16th?
I mentioned it at one point (at my mum's insistence...) and got told "but there's nothing of you!". In the UK they don't even weigh you at prenatal appts because women gain such widely different amounts and it's no reflection on the weight of the baby.  

As long as you're still a healthy weight for your height I wouldn't worry especially as they'll be monitoring your sugar levels in your urine anyway.  

However there's no harm in raising it with your dr if you'd like reassurance.
