Bump Update: 31 Weeks

How far along? 31 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: Around 17-18 pounds.
Maternity clothes? Maternity/regular. It's crazy not to mix in regular clothes- I happen to have a lot of sweaters/cardigans/blouses that have worked great all along!
Stretch marks? Not any yet.
Sleep: Most nights good, a few uncomfortable.
Best moment this week: My first baby shower! My family came in town and we had a wonderful weekend. Seeing his nursery fill up with gifts from so many special people was enough to bring tears to my eyes!
Miss Anything? Nope. I'm not technically missing these things at the moment, but we have started a mental list of the "first" things I will have after the baby is born. All the forbidden pregnancy things. Might be a post soon!
Food cravings: Ice cream still sounds great! Fruit still sounds amazing as well.
Symptoms: All the sudden I have back pain {upper} and sometimes I find it hard when I'm sitting on the couch to get comfortable. Overall though, I feel good.
Have you started to show yet: Yep!
Gender: Baby boy :)
Labor Signs: No. I think I have had some braxton hicks after hearing a nurse explain to me in more detail though. The way I read about them online was not anything I had felt.
Belly Button in or out? Still in. By the way, in the photo above that is a wrinkle in my shirt sticking out! My belly button is still a few inches above that.
Wedding rings on or off? On- but, I started sleeping with them off some nights. I get a really panicky feeling if they are the least bit tight in the morning.
Happy or Moody most of the time: Happy! 
Looking forward to: So, so much! I have another baby shower this weekend at home which I cannot wait for. I also am getting more excited by the minute about this baby boy! I can't believe we will have him in our arms in two months! Eek!!

Get ready for this- here is the progression of a baby bump from 12 weeks {nothing to show at all folks} to 31 weeks! The baby IS now the size of a pineapple. A tan would sure be nice.
I feel pretty good for being able to wear the same shirt! ;)

One week closer to having our boy and I am a happy Momma!
