Can you believe I am 31 weeks pregnant?!

I certainly cannot believe I am 31 weeks! Whoohoo! Burke and I are cruising along and doing very well. He puts on his nightly show and moves, kicks, squirms...I swear he is going to be a football player! Even if he is just the punter. He loves ice cream which should be a given, since his parents love ice cream. Every night after ice cream he just goes crazy. I absolutely love the feeling he gives me! It is so amazing and the most wonderful gift!

We attended the Railroad Christmas party last Saturday. It was a lot of fun and great to meet all the people Greg works with. I found out just how proud Greg is to be a daddy, as everyone I met knew I was pregnant. I danced a couple of songs, but I am klutz and just knew I would wipe out. I didn't want to take any chances, especially since I about wiped out just walking down the stairs to get to the party. Someone at the party took our picture and it is a great picture, but we haven't received it yet. I'll post it as soon as we get it!

We see Dr. K on Monday. He is the BIG doctor. The one that makes me nervous...the one who can really tell if something is not going right. We will have another Level 2ultrasound, and we will leave hopefully feeling as elated as we did last time! We are really excited to see Burke in 4D again. At 20 weeks, he was super skinny. And it stressed me out. I have worried about him a lot due to the pictures. I was told that was perfectly normal, for him to be so skinny, but it stressed me. 32 weeks is optimal time to have a 4D ultrasound, so we can't wait to see our little guy again! Hopefully, he will be chubbier! Plus, we get to see him in 4D for free! Meaning we don't pay extra for those amazing pictures! I tell you, being high risks does have its perks!! Dr. K will be checking to make sure Burke is growing fast enough. Lovenox, the shots I take, can slow down his growth. I have no reason to believe he isn't growing fast enough, as his kicks show me he is a strong little guy! Please pray though that our news is positive and I hear once again that my baby boy is doing perfectly!

I feel like I am leaving something out. Oh yes, I finished that grueling book!!! Hooray for me! I feel like I am an adult now. I did not enjoy that darn book one bit, but I set myself out to finish it and I did. I will not tell you what it is, because it seems to be quite popular right now. I would hate to sway you one way or the other.

I'll let you know on Monday what Dr. K says.

Love,

Alicia and Burke
