home sweet home

As you may have read on Josh's Blog, I am home from the hospital now.  I was really nervous about coming home at first.  It's been nice having all my meals delivered to me, and nurses waiting on me hand and foot, but nothing beats a good night's rest in my own bed!  Josh has been a trooper too.  He rushed around the house this morning making sure that I had everything I needed for the day at my bed side (except my morning cup of coffee :)) before leaving for work.

I want to thank everyone again for all the prayers and support.  Even though, things have not worked out exactly the way that we had hoped, I still feel at peace.  Baby A has now gone up to heaven, but I believe she is now our family's own personal angel.  I know this happened for a reason, and God has a plan for us.  We continue to ask for your prayers, and are hoping that Babies B, C, and D will grow stronger and healthier now.  My goal is to carry them 34 weeks... May 18th 2009!


  1. Hugs to you and The Beans during this difficult time.

  2. Lauren and Josh,
    I log on to yoyur website every morning hoping for a good report, not only about baby A, but B,C,D and yourselves as well. I instantly teared up when I read about baby A, I'm so sorry for your loss. I only hope and pray that the rest of your pregnancy goes well, and that all is well in the end for you and the Beans. God bless, lots of prayers from the frozen trundra of MN.

  3. I too am so sorry for your loss.

    Did your puppies miss you??!

  4. Enjoy being home, and get some good rest! I am sad but uplifted at the same time for you. And you are handling this so well, Lauren. God will continue to give you all the strength you need. :-)

  5. My heart is with you. May God bless your little angel. We continue to pray for you. You are so strong! Tais

  6. I continue to pray for you, Josh & the now 3 remaining Beans. I am so very, very sorry for the loss of your precious Baby A.

    Praying for May 18!

    Sorry to hear about Baby A. It's never a bad thing to have an angel looking over you.

    Keep resting and keep your eyes on May 18th!


  8. Glad your home, Sweetie! Take care of yourself and the beans. Love ya!

  9. Glad to hear that you are home with your own personal nursing staff of one. :)

    I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. All of those babies are lucky to have such a strong mama and daddy looking out for them.

  10. I'm so sorry about little Baby A. Rest and keep strong and have faith that the other beans will do the same.

    Thinking positive toughts for you all.

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
