Default Should I rack a second time?

So, for my second attempt at home brewing I decided to brewed a batch of Grand Cru from Midwest. In the primary it was fermenting aggressively for 10 days slowed and came to a stop after the 13th day. I waited till the 21st and racked to the secondary.

Well, the following morning after racking it started fermenting all over again for 8 more days. It's now been sitting in the secondary for 20 days. Obviously, there's now a lot of sediment, about an inch worth.

Is it worth it to transfer it yet again? Or should I just leave it alone. I was planing on bottling next week.

Gheck grevity and wait till you are ready to bottle. It is unnecessary to move your beer again

Thanks for the quick response. I actually checked the gravity yesterday because I was brewing my third batch and I'm spot on the target FG of 1.010.
