31 weeks and cute baby stuff

Holy moly, 31 weeks!  
My weight is so out of control.  I've been too scared to look at the scale lately, but I'm pretty sure I'm about where I was at when I delivered Brooklyn.  
It's now next to impossible to get comfortable in my bed so most nights I fall asleep in the recliner watching reruns of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.  My hips ache, I have no patience for anything whatsoever, and I have MAJOR anxiety about the delivery.  
That's the thing about #3.  
You know all too well what to expect.  With the first one, you're in total la-la baby land and really don't know what you're in for.  By the third, you've now experienced twice what it really feels like to have a human blow through your girl parts, plus you've heard and read about every single bad thing that could possibly happen to you or the baby.  How could you not be freaking out? 
At least with two other kids to worry about, I don't have a ton of time to dwell on my fears. 
My girl and me before church. 
Oh man, the giraffe print is doing nothing for me!
 So excited about my new wipes travel case!  
I found it at this Etsy shop.
My sister bought me this super cute nursing cover.  My brother-in-law joked that I will never need it because with three kids I won't be going anywhere.  I still plan on going to MOPS!
I'm nesting up a storm whenever I get energy and I can't wait to show you what's new.

I think you look great! I always gain a ton of weight when pregnant (way more than you have!) so I can relate for sure. I think the giraffe print is adorable on you =)

I can totally relate to the freaking out about everything because you know all the stuff that could go wrong! And oh my goodness that wipe container is adorable...and so is the name:)

I gained like 60 lbs with each kid. I bet you won't beat that. :) You look radiant.

I'm also 31 weeks and a nervous wreck too. This is my second. I had my daughter at 33 weeks, so i'm doing alot better this time. Don't worry you look great, i've already gained 35 lbs. so far, but there's nothing I can do to stop it. I'm way more anxious this time also, i've already got my bags packed i'm so nervous :) I am due Mar. 27th. We are closing on our house March 14th and buying a new one Feb. 24th...just to add to more anxiety. Now all of my nesting fever has been screwed up! AAARG!
