Gluten Free Bumpdate | Week 31

How far along? 31 weeks / 32 when this posts
Total weight gain: Not sure this week, there were a lot of holiday treats involved so I'm a bit nervous for my next weigh in!
Maternity clothes? Yes! And I'm super ticked off because the elastic band in one of my maternity jeans broke. So annoying!
Stretch marks? Nope!
Sleep: Still very intermittent / not good.
Best moment this week: Spending holidays with family and seeing friends!
Miss anything? My waist. Wine, I had big intentions to have a glass on Christmas and had refrained on my birthday to make it happen, however said wine did not come to fruition. New Years Eve hopefully I can have one!
Movement: In general yes, and lucky me, Bricklet found my ribs this week. He was considerably quieter when I had to take Benadryl which I freaked out a bit about (am now in rock/hard place with being able to breath and not drugging Bricklet).
Food cravings: No cravings really. Enjoyed some gluten free baguettes from an awesome bakery in Montreal (Louise's Sans Gluten Free is amazing if you live in or are visiting Montreal and can get to the West Island).
Anything making you queasy or sick: Acid reflux continues to be the bane of my existence. Reverting back to not eating at home / not having things i prepared freaking me out. Not pregnancy related, but harder to cope with being pregnant, I have had insane allergies this week. I rarely take anything for them anyways, however Sunday morning I was having a very hard time breathing (was starting to have asthma problems, and I only have sport inflicted asthma which I can't take inhalers for) which caused me to panic a lot and for the first time I paged by OB (poor guy, it was a Sunday morning!) to ask about taking allergy meds. He okayed Benadryl.
Gender: Still a boy as far as we know.
Labor signs: Nope!
Symptoms: Acid reflux, insomnia, being whale sized, back problems, and my eczema has gone absolutely mental (allergy-related aggravation).
Belly button in or out? Still in! Hoping it holds out the next few weeks without popping!
Wedding rings on or off? On mostly, I've had some swelling which prevented me from wearing them, but I think that is allergy related more than pregnancy related.
Happy or moody most of the time: With feeling sick, I'd have to say more on the moody side this week unfortunately. 
What are you looking forward to? 2014! We're really getting to the point that Bricklet could arrive at any time, and I'm really excited to meet him.
