Hello
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
60 pounds of weight gain during pregnancy is on the higher side.
If your blood pressure and other parameters are fine, dont worry though.
And you would have to work extra hard to shed off the weight post delivery.
Can you post a picture of the mole.
I would then be able to opine better.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Take care.

Detailed Answer:
This seems to be a really simple mole.
I can see nothing worrisome about it.
If you think it has really grown too much in size, have a dermatologist look at it and get it biopsied.
I do not think there is a need to do that.
PRegnancy is a hormonally mediated condition, so the mole might have grown in size at the time.
Take care.
