Happy August...31 week update

I can't believe we are already 1/2 way through August!! Where in the world has the summer gone? I am enjoying the cooler weather that we are finally having around here now that summer is coming to an end. The 100+ temps were pretty miserable to deal with while being pregnant.

I celebrated my 28th birthday on the 3rd, and had a great day! We got a sitter for Jacob, and went to Mitchell for dinner, and it was so yummy! I was so full after my meal, that I had to get my cake to go! But I was then able to enjoy that slice over the next couple of days because it was so big!

The next exciting event coming up is Jacob will be starting pre-school 2 days a week! It starts September 4th, and he is excited! Since be is 3, his class only meets 2 x a week for 2.5 hours each time. I am excited to see how much more he learns and am excited for him to meet more kids.

 Jacob playing soccer outside!
 I love this up close picture I caught of him. He was under the porch steps, and I stuck my camera between 2 steps and just snapped this without being able to see what I was actually seeing.
 Jacob pushing daddy on the swing!
 Enjoying an apple directly from our apple tree!
 Daddy and Jacob ready for football! Go Saints!
 Another cute soccer picture!
 And now for my update: 

How far along are you? 31 weeks 1 day - but measuring 33 weeks 1 day
How big is baby?  At my growth ultrasound last week he was measuring 4 lbs 3 oz!
Maternity Clothes? All the time...I even had to sort through and pull some maternity clothes that don't fit me anymore!
Weight - loss or gain?  Back to my pre-pregnancy weight.
Sleep: Just OK. Some nights are bad and some are good. I get up at least once to use the bathroom. I am still needing the ice packs to place under my hip to help with the pain.
Movement: All the time! He is head down, with his butt on my right side, and his arms and legs on my left. So I get lots of punches / kicks on the left side and a butt sticking out on my right. :) Not always that comfortable, but I love feeling him move!
Food Cravings: Still loving the fruit... and sweets.
Food Aversions: I don't really have aversions, I just can't eat that much at one time due to my stomach being so squished.
Belly Button In or Out? is pretty much flat all the time now.

What do you miss? Energy, and seeing my feet! I have not seen them in awhile. :) I also miss not being in pain all the time. :( I have been seeing my Chiropractor and massage therapist 1 x a week and a PT 2 x a week to keep me walking and to help with the pain.

And here is a comparison picture from 20 weeks vs 31 weeks!
