31 weeks

baby is the size of: baby center says 4 navel oranges, which is the weirdest comparison yet, i think.  so i'm going with the bump's fruit of pineapple.
how far along are you: 31 weeks, 3 days
due date/days left: jan 10/60 days
sleep: pretty awful.  by about 4 or 5am, my i can no longer find a comfortable position for my hips.  i am also getting up at least once to pee, at which point i also find i need to take tums, chug 1/2 glass of water, and take off my pants because i'm sweating through my shirt.  overshare?  sorry.   
best moment this week: my friend's wedding.  i saw so many people i haven't seen in ages.  and everyone kept telling me how beautiful i look, which sounds really conceited, but it was really wonderful, considering my coworkers just like to tell me how huge i am (one in particular has taken to calling me "big mama," which makes me want to smack the shit out of her). 
what are you looking forward to: having a weekend off.  we have some things to do around the house, but for the most part we will be laying low. 
what do you miss:  sleep. 
symptoms: big belly.  definitely feeling some braxton hicks.  my hands and feet are swelling a bit.  and i definitely am experiencing pregnancy congestion, which is fun. my back, hips, and now my knees hurt pretty much round-the-clock.  i'm going to talk to my ob on tuesday about seeing a prenatal chiropractor.
weight gain: about 23 pounds.  
movement:  baby boy is really grooving in there.  the other night we were watching tv and he was moving like crazy.  i sat there, with my hand on my bare belly, feeling him dance around, and just cried.  it was so incredible, it just overwhelmed me.  matt has gotten to feel him really moving around a lot, too.  he says it's weird.  and it is. but it's awesome.
gender: baby boy!! 
belly button: shockingly, still in!
rings: on, but i find myself removing them pretty frequently.
