the muffin chronicles: prologue – week 36
We’re down to the last four weeks, folks! Amazing, right?! Please forgive the lack of updates during April – the month slipped through my fingers before I even knew it was in my hand, thanks to countless doctor’s appointments, routine tests, birthing classes, Holy Week, Easter, and moving, in addition to our regularly scheduled programs (work and such). It might not sound like much, but believe me – it was A LOT! But now we are in May. Life hasn’t necessarily “settled down” yet, but with the move and the birthing classes under our belts, it feels much more peaceful than April.
Our little guy or girl is growing like crazy. Muffin doesn’t have as much room to kick these days, but there is a lot of rolling action going on in there. It’s mostly upside-down pirouettes; Muffin has been hanging out head down for a while. There has also been some boxing going on in my hips, along with daily hiccups. Karl and I are getting more and more excited to meet this energetic bundle of joy!
Now that we are settling into our larger home, we are slowly getting things set up for Muffin’s arrival. The planner in me was feeling a little stifled because I couldn’t get things ready before we moved, but nesting is officially in full swing! And I am loving it! My back and ankles, not so much… They keep me in check, as does Karl, to make sure I’m not overdoing things. I don’t always listen, but I am trying to. Especially since I know I am nearing the end of my training and the marathon of labor is looming before me.
Please keep us in your prayers as we get ready to end the prologue and start the full story of Muffin’s Life!
PS. Please excuse the mess in the photos… We just moved…
