31 Weeks Pregnant

When you are a thin/small person (normally 105 pounds) a lot of people don't realize that you are really uncomfortable at this stage of pregnancy. I keep getting people saying, "You don't even look pregnant" which is laughable to me, since I have gained 30 pounds already.
Mostly I just feel tired, really out of it, and unmotivated to do much (at work or home.) I get some energy spurts, but for the most part I feel pretty tired. The wierd thing is that when I go to lay down (thinking I will fall asleep immediatly) I just lay there...mind still working, but body just disabled.
I have been reading this morning about what labor feels like and other people's experience at 31 weeks. I just don't know how women do it who have kids!
I feel like a wimp a lot of the time and hope this doesn't carry over into my delivery. I want to be strong and do my best to try to make it through birth with very few drugs.
Since this is my first pregnancy, I really have no idea how having a baby boy is going to change my life. Everyone is telling my their stories about sleepless nights, no time for yourself, being contstantly covered in baby-fluids, etc.
I can't wait to meet our little baby boy...but it's just difficult to imagine! This is one of the biggest adventures yet.
