Emotional/Hormonal, is there a difference?

So I think my emotions have gotten the best of me during this pregnancy.. Emotions?? or Hormones?? I'm going to stick with hormones. I can be fine one minute, and then I take something the wrong way, or I don't get my way, and what do ya know, I start crying. I am NOT a crier, never have been. Something serious has to set me off. My poor husband, I hope he doesn't move off on me, like seriously take his stuff and run! Its pretty bad. I tried to warn him, but he's a man, he forgets. He always forgives me though, so I gotta give him credit for that.
I know the next 2 months are really going to be hardcore (hormone wise), I'm doing my best to keep it all in check! I honestly think I have only had about 3-4 breakdowns, 2 of them took place while trying to go to bed. I just feel so exhausted and get super edgy really fast at night. But hey, I have a good excuse- and when I'm not pregnant, I'm a pretty super wife if I say so myself.. HAHA!! (that oughta make ya laugh right?)

How Far Along: 31 Weeks
Total weight gain/loss: You know when you go to the dr, this is the first stop you make, they don't even ask you to get on the scale, just very nonchalantly stand in front of it.. So, when I see that number, I think wowza! but really I've only gained about 15 lbs, so I figure that's pretty good.
Stretch marks: no, but my veins on my sides are pretty prominent most days
Sleep: this is a touchy subject. I may get a few hours of sleep in between all the bathroom breaks and refilling my water, its the pits!
Best Moment: feeling her have the hiccups, its pretty neat
Movement: lots of movement, mostly in the evenings-she really goes to town on me that's for sure
Cravings: orange juice (but that's nothing new with me) grapes, and I really want some good watermelon, but I know I have to take it easy on the salt & watermelon without salt isn't much fun
Aversions: french fries, still scared to even try them, so i just don't--and milk in the morning makes me want to yack so no cereal for breakfast for me
Gender: Girl
Labor Signs: none that I know of
Belly Button: still regular, looks like its getting flatter and stretching out tho
What I miss most: a good nights rest, over easy eggs
Milestones/Looking Forward to: Going to have my 4d ultrasound next week, I'm super anxious about seeing her features- and having maternity pictures taken this weekend! I hope they turn out good and I don't look like a flubbery mess..haha!
