31 Weeks-Baby is the size of a pineapple!


 How far along? 31 Weeks 
Total weight gain: Still looking like 20 pounds...I think I was closer to 18 pounds the last week or two.
Maternity clothes? I just ordered a maternity dress at Old Navy, but otherwise it's been a lot of regular dresses...like the one above from Target.
Stretch marks? Still clear...fingers are crossed!
Sleep: Still sleeping well...though the side that I sleep on will get sore after a while, so I need to shift more often.
Best moment this week: I got to spend time with one of my best friends this past weekend...and the weather was gorgeous!  It was tons of fun.  And even though I didn't make the wedding in North Carolina, I was definitely remembered throughout the events...pictures to follow at the end!  :)
Miss Anything? I missed being at our best friends wedding!!!
Movement: Lots of body moves and rolls.  It must be getting tighter in there!
Food cravings: Sweets...especially fruit!  It felt like summer this past weekend so I indulged in lots and lots of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries!  Yum!
Anything making you queasy or sick: Not really!
Gender: Boy
Labor Signs: No
Symptoms: Shortness of breath, lower tummy and back pains after walks or bending over.
Belly Button in or out? The top definitely is protruding but it's still an innie.
Wedding rings on or off? on
Mood: I cry at the drop of a hat...pretty emotional, but all in a good way!  Blaming all the hormones!
Looking forward to: Our maternity shoot this weekend!  If only the weather is predicted to be as gorgeous as it was this past weekend!


And even though I couldn't be at the wedding, the bride made sure that I was "present".  Introducing preggo on a stick:


Apparently I was quite the hit:


The whole thing was hilarious and definitely made me feel like I was still a part of the big day!  I got to watch the ceremony via Skype as well, which was awesome!  I am lucky to have such amazing friends!!  ;)
