Bump update: 31 weeks

Woo hoo! closing in on the 8th month.. This week is all about reality and how carrying a baby is a pretty awsome thing. It's also a reminder sometimes that when your body says you need to slow down, you need to listen. I unfortunately think, I took my last flight last week until baby is born. 

How Far Along: 31 weeks

Total Weight Gain/Loss: +15lbs (from Drs apt 3weeks ago) 
Maternity Clothes: All of my clothes
Stretch Marks: Yes, let's not talk about it.
Best Moment this week: Starting to think this thing is real and this baby is going to come out of me at some point. 
Miss Anything: nope
Movement: Oh yeah! I got to see the baby move all the time. I also feel like my whole belly is moving when it does happen.
Sleep: nothing is comfortable. P has been pretty great about trying to snuggle and get me comfortable but its not working. 
Food: Loving fruit, maybe too much
Anything Making you Queasy or Sick: Right now I am having aversions to chocolate and red meat. Just the thought of them makes me queasy, so that means I don't need them right now?!
Have you started to show: very much so

Gender predictions: I am still saying girl at this time. I still like hearing people predictions but at this time its still about 50/50
Labor Signs: No, I hope not.
Belly Button In or Out: Innie, still sore on top.
Wedding ring on or off: on but occasionally I have to move it to my ring finger ( I wear it on my middle finger because its big)
Happy or Moody: Mostly happy, but I can get very emotional very fast. I wouldn't say moody, but P might disagree

Looking forward: Just holding the little bean. Oh and we have decided to get a doula for the birthing process. I am pretty excited about it.

I don't know where else to put this, but I have to share..

I don't want you to think that this is all rainbows and unicorns because it's not. 
I hate that my feet get swollen (bp is ok) and my back hurts (I have chronic back pain, but this is different) all the time and peeing all the time, but in reality thats not much to complain about when it could be 10x worse. 
I feel like an old lady, I have to wear compression socks when I go to work and a belly/back support but these are the things that make me feel better.
