My name is Caity. I'm a Navy wife and a stay at home mommy, so life is pretty dull most of the time. I have two children: my son, Kale, who is 3, and my daughter, Kirra, who is 22 months. I also just found out that I'm expecting again! I spend most of my time with my family, or reading, writing. Being away from home is hard for me, all my family lives in Florida, like 16 hours away. I don't have any friends here in Texas, so yea, I definitely have a very boring life.

September 4, 2009- Went to L&D for contractions and found out that I'm severely dehydrated...
September 7, 2009- Went back to L&D with cramping and pelvic pressure. Got a shot to stop contractions and an IV of fluids. Then got a call a few hours later that the fetal fibronectin test came back positive...
September 8, 2009- Went back to L&D again for cramping and got two bags of fluids and found out I had a UTI. Got Antibiotics to get rid of it.

November 18, 2009- Got hooked up to the monitors to check Kirra's movement and stuff, she seemed fine, even though she likes to scare me at home. Got checked and was about 3cm dialated, also losing muscus plug. Contractions, yay.
November 24, 2009- Went to L&D for contractions, they were coming about every two minutes but I wasn't dialating so I got sent home
