33 week appointment

i went in today just KNOWING that i would get some news.  i started having contractions yesterday, but nothing on a schedule, and also really bad shooting pains that would leave me doubled over for a minute or 2.  it was enough of a day to scare ben and i, so we got our hospital suitcase packed just in case.  well.......... nothing.  he said everything i was describing was just the last miserable month of pregnancy.  so, as of now, we're still on target for october.  i also pre-registered austin and i both in the hospital today, so now all we have to do is show up.  my feet have started swelling pretty bad, so that hasn't been fun.  i didn't realize that they would also be achy when they swell.  =(  any advice on relief, other than propping up on pillows?  another thing that i was disappointed about was that my next appointment isn't until sept. 18th!  oh well... maybe i can get my mind off of all of that and focus on fun things that are coming up.

first of all, MSU is playing saturday!  i was hoping to ride up to the game and sit around a tailgate or 2, but with my feet swollen like they are, i would prefer not to do all of that walking.  i guess watching it on tv will have to work.

then, next weekend are my other 2 baby showers!  AND as if we haven't been blessed enough, the youth group apparently wanted to do a little something for us, so they're giving us a little shower on the 20th.  ben and i haven't been able to be with them a whole lot since camp, and we have really missed hanging out with them and catching up on what's going on in their lives.

hope everyone is having a good week so far.  i'll leave you with a picture of my syd punks...  =)
