Brooklyn Elise Countdown Is Over - She's Here!


Recommended Posts

I know her due date is at the end of next month but with Carson she not only went 4 weeks early but they were going to induce around that time any way.  So I'm thinking it's time for a Erin Paine birthing thread.  

On a related note, I've been wondering if they have been purposefully drawing out this season to allow for birthing VSEs for the two babies.

Kind of off topic, but pre-Brooklyn's birth, I'd sent Erin a short note thanking her for sharing her struggle with miscarriage (a close friend was going through a similar situation and it helped me to

The Paines barely got the dog a few days ago. Let's at least let them prove they're inept pet owners before we send them to FJ court for it.

I don't know why this is such a persistent belief on here, but Dr. Vick is not a fundie. He's my mom's and my aunts' doctor, and the care he's provided them with wouldn't fly with a fundie OB/GYN.  Th

I think they've said they will be inducing earlier because Erin went into labour on her own last time before they could do it.

She's due August 30th so I'd say she gives birth between August 1st-10th.  She sounds really excited to have a girl and already over this pregnancy.  I couldn't imagine being that pregnant in the Tennessee humidity she must be miserable

I'm guessing any day now. With Carson 4 weeks early, a clotting disorder and a placenta abruption, no way that they'll risk waiting much longer.

I hope for her and the baby that the doctor decide to induce her in a short time, is too risky to wait long, look what happen with carson, she risk a lot

My guess is they want the baby born ASAP and are closely monitoring Brooklyn's weight due to concerns about prematurity.  Suspect they'll induce once the baby reaches around 5 1/2 lbs or if there's any suspicion of impending labor.

She's probably a little more than 34 weeks now. It's not the worst thing for her to be induced this early (or a little later), but Brooklyn would still be considered premature. Certain body systems are still maturing at this point, so there could be complications for baby - but it likely wouldn't be anywhere near as bad as it would be if she had delivered earlier than this.

Making it this far is a very good thing and I hope her Doctors are able to induce as scheduled this time for Erin's sake - she looked terrified and like she was really suffering with Carson's birth. Hopefully she can make it a little longer without anything happening - the longer Brooklyn can safely stay in the womb the longer she has to gain weight and mature.

I'm four months pregnant in Connecticut - it's been ridiculously humid lately. Like, close to 100% humidity some days. I could barely walk my dog the past few weeks (she was not pleased and she was quite vocal about it; she is so lucky she's cute.) So I have a lot of sympathy for Erin right now. Almost full term in the middle of summer in Tennessee? That's my idea of a nightmare right now. Hopefully she's staying comfortable and cool.

She just posted yesterday that she's 34 weeks. She has indicated they are going to induce around 36 weeks.

I just hope for her sake and the baby that she doesn't go in labour early and that erything goes alright with the birth without any complications. A second c section comes with it own risks

Erin didn't have a C-Section.

I am currently 33 weeks pregnant and live in Tennessee. I can confirm that it's not much fun. And I love hot weather. It's more of an air quality problem than an overheating problem. Hard to breathe when it's 100% humidity and your lungs are squished every which way.

Didn't they say if Erin had a C-Section she could have major problems due to her clotting disorder?

You might have thought that because she had a high risk birth.

Regardless of the beliefs of the parents involved, I wish for a safe and healthy delivery for both Erin and Brooklyn.........and I hope for everyone's sake this is her last pregnancy. 

Cherin, you've got your boy and girl now, quit while you're ahead and everyone is still alive. Please.

I as well hope she gets her epidural. I wonder if they are going to tape this one as well. Her delivery is the only one that was interesting to me

I hope for a safe delivery and healthy baby - and that no taping will occur unless she actually, actively, wants it and isn't subjected to filming/making a video public by contract.  She is a person not a zoo animal - although Reality TV, and fans thereof, sometimes confuse the two.

I hope Erin and Brooklyn come through this okay and are healthy. As far as the future, I highly doubt Erin and Chad will try to limit their family size. I hope they don't conceive ever again after Brooklyn is born, but something tells me that's wishful thinking.

I don't wonder if they'll tape this one.  I'm sure the money's too good for them to refuse.  They can negotiate what gets edited out after the blessed event has occurred.

They've said about 5 miles down the road.

You know, I love my family and my husband's family very much... But that's my idea of a nightmare. I personally need a bit more separation from them all - I like my privacy. :pb_lol:

That said, Erin seems to have difficult pregnancies in some ways. So I'm guessing that she and Chad likely appreciate having family so close by. And Erin seems very close with many of her siblings, so she specifically may appreciate not being very far away. Especially in the months before they conceived Carson - it may have gotten rather lonely for her otherwise.

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.
