Caitlyn's first photo shoot with mommy.

Yesterday we attempted Caitlyn's first photo shoot with mom.. she did pretty good and slept through most of it. She is such a great baby. we absolutely love her to pieces and the kiddos can't seem to get enough of holding her. We feel so blessed.

Here are some pictures of our beautiful new baby Caitlyn Marie Yates
Mom pushed once, and out she came. Probably the quickest birth known to man.

5 lbs. 8 oz. and 18.25 inches long.

She is perfect in every way, passed the hearing test, car seat test, etc. Her and Mom should be coming home tomorrow! Yeah!!!

Quick Baby Update

Okay so had Dr. appointment this morning and received the okay to go off my meds starting tonight. I took my last dose at 4pm, sooooo we will see if this start acting up again tonight or if it waits for the morning. We scheduled another Dr appointment for a week from today but it seemed like neither my Dr. or myself really feel I will make it to that appointment. Will try to keep you all up to date if anything happens :)

Finished the Nursery

So what do you think? I figured since I about had a new baby this last week I really needed to finish her room. Still trying to find a rug but I can deal without it for awhile....

Home from the Hospital!!

WAHOOO!!! I am home and still pregnant!!!
We have finally figured out that if I am on 3 different meds that we can control my contractions. Although I hate being on that much medicine it is sooo important for Caitlyn to continue baking even if it is for only a few more days. I have a Dr. appt set for Monday morning and Dr. Luna said we will discuss when is a safe time to stop the meds, however since she only wrote the prescriptions for the next several days until I am 36 weeks, I am assume our conversation on Monday will be her telling me you can stop the meds and if you go into labor (which will very likely happen within that day or so) I will let you deliver. I have to say this though I am so grateful that we were blessed to move down here to Texas and have been under the care of such a great team of doctors. They have done a great job of keeping me pregnant and making sure Caitlyn is plenty strong before she makes her entrance into this world.

In hospital :(

Well tuesday morning I woke up bright and early to contractions that were 2-5 minute apart, so I had Dave take me to L&D.After getting checked out they made an attempt to stop contraction with terbutaline shots, that helped for about 10 min and then the contractions came back.Dr. Luna decided to admit me for closer monitoring and after a full day and partial night of contracting we have figured out a that 5mg terbutaline and 20mg procardia an hour later keeps them under control.Now I just have to stay stable through the night and will get released in the morning.On a bright note if I go into labor again after this coming tuesday they will just let me go as Caitlyn should be perfectly fine and will likely not need NICU time. So that's the latest baby update.

Baby Caitlyn Update!!

Well we had a wonderful appt today...sorta. Since I am now 34 weeks they did a manual check rather than an ultrasound. We found out that I am already 1cm dilated and 85% effaced....sooo it looks like no matter what we try Caitlyn is bound and determined to get here on her time frame. The Dr. scheduled our next appointment for next Thursday, which we both hope I make it too!! We will keep you posted!!!
