January 31, 2009


I had to think really hard to figure out what day today is.  The past 12 days have been such a roller coaster making the days all blend together.  Anyway, after I got some sleep this morning, I started feeling much better.  It's amazing that all my labor symptoms went away immediately following Baby A passing.  I've been on a contraction monitor all day, but haven't had any cramping.

Even though, all that has happened was definitely not what we wanted, I still trust in God's plan for our family.  I just hope that his plans are to give us these 3 healthy babies.  It almost seems as though Baby A was looking out for her siblings and passed away in order to give them more room to grow.  It's so sad to think that she was meant to make that sacrifice for all of us, but it really feels that way.  She will always be our family's angel that looks over us.   B, C, and D already look like they are benefiting from the additional room.

I'm a little nervous about tomorrow's cerclage procedure.  I will be getting an epidural, and it should only take a few minutes.  I'm just tired of getting poked and prodded.  There is a good chance that this can benefit my pregnancy, so we are going for it.  Please pray for a successful outcome tomorrow!


  1. We are so glad you and the babies are settled...we will keep praying!! The picture of baby D is so sweet!

  2. You have no idea who I am, but I have been following your blog from Misty. I had tons of trouble with my twin pregnancy. I wish you the best, and keep you, your husband, your babies in my prayers every day! Hang in there mamma! I was in the hospital and on bed rest for 8 weeks! God bless you and those sweet little angels! Baby A specifically, I will hit my knees tonight for that sweet little girl. Just know you have touched so many people, so keep that in mind and keep fighting!

  3. Lauren, stay strong girl! You are doing great, i know times are hard, but your right, she was watching out for the rest, their guardian angel. PRaying for you!!

  4. Baby D is so precious! We know everything will be fine today. We will continue to pray for you!

  5. You are doing so awesome! I am a firm believer in angels. we had a similar situation, but it was in the first trimester ( i started out with quints). From the moment we lost #5, my pregnancy was smooth going for the most part.
    You will be in my prayers!

    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.
