Carson's 6-Month Milestone

Charles Stephen Paine IV, known by his family and friends as "Carson," is six months old today! Chad and Erin Paine call Carson their miracle baby, due to the multiple miscarriages Erin endured in the couple's first year of marriage and the health risks she faced during her pregnancy. The proud parents say that Carson was an answer to their prayers.

  6. How did they found out the gender by thanksgiving last year??? If her due date was June 10, she conceived in September. Your can't find out that soon!!! My guess is they filmed it for the show...

    1. Her original due date was June 8th which would have made her roughly 12 weeks at thanksgiving. You can find out gender through a free cell DNA blood test. The purpose of the test is to check the chances of baby having a genetic disorder but it can also indicate whether or not a Y chromosome is or isn't present. We found out our babies gender at 11 weeks.

    2. I said the same thing at the time and no one had an answer for me. Additionally, he was born almost a month premature, supposedly, yet required no NICU time and was a healthy weight. Things don't add up.

    3. I'm a nurse and I've a number of friends who are midwives. It is possible for a baby to be born 4 weeks early and need no nicu time (as happened to my friend). Also it's possible to find out gender via a blood test as the first responder to the comment pointed out.

    4. I had my baby a month early then my due date and she was and is perfectly fine. No NICU she did awesomely great on her own, and she is 5 years old.

    5. He was born at 37 weeks which is early but it's not drastically early. A lot of 37 weekers don't require a NICU stay. And he was on the smaller side of average for his birth weight but right on target with being 37 weeks old.

    6. I had a baby a month early who did not require the NICU. We were discharged at 48 after the birth

  22. Carson is such a cutie pie! I'm so happy for you Chad and Erin. God blessed me with a boy after several miscarriages. Due to medical issues, I wasn't able to carry anymore. I am so thankful and blessed for my son just like I know you two are. God is so good. My sweet angels in heaven, I love you.
