the results are in!!

Just 10 percent of the voters of the baby sex poll are correct with their predictions... We are having 3 GIRLS and 1 BOY!  Today's 2 hour full anatomy scan shows that all the babies are measuring the correct size and developing well.  They all look great and we couldn't be happier!!

Our oldest, Baby A, resembles her dad.  She seems spunky, and was busy kicking her sisters today.  She is in the lowest position and is the one causing me to have to pee every 15 minutes. :)

Baby B and C are both lodged in the middle and laying horizontally.  They seem to be our mellow girls, and were passing the time sucking their thumbs and waving to us.

Last but certainly not least, is Baby D, our boy.  He is the most active one.  The ultrasound tech spent almost 30 minutes just trying to get him to stay still long enough to get his heart measurement.  He already reminds me of my very active nephew, Neil! 


  1. That boy is in for it! Not only is he the only guy, he's going to be the "youngest"! :-)

    This is all great news - congrats!!!

  2. If he is like Neil may I suggest a few baby containment device, baby proofing, 911 on speed dial, and learning the maxim "stop doing stuff"!

  3. Oh Lauren, I couldn't be happier!! I am so happy the babies are so healthy and active. It's so exciting that you know all the sexes, now you can really lock down some names. Stay healthy and rested and I look forward to your next update.

  4. How fun!! Lots of pink!! And boys are so much fun,too!

  5. You will enjoy having so many girls! THey are alot of fun. ANd I'm sure your hubby is glad to a boy in the mix. Congratulaions & glad to hear all is goign so well!

  6. Hey Lauren and Josh,

    Awesome looking site!

    Avery prays diligently for your growing babies at dinner prayer at bedtime prayer.

    Last night when the kids heard the babies were 5 oz, they said - hey just like a pinewood derby car! Claire, Hannah and Ian are all building cars to race in the next 2 weekends.

    God Bless,


  7. It's great to hear from you and I'm glad you are doing so well. I live about an hour and a half south of Tampa. I'm also glad to hear that you are having 3 girls and 1 boy as I did. I would be happy to pass along my kids clothes if you are interested. I pretty much have matching outfits. Mine have out grown the preemie clothes and are now in newborn (at 3 months old!) Please keep in touch! e-mail me if you'd like: kelly.trullinger@comcast.net

    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.
