Update on Erin's Pregnancy

 Trace Bates, Erin (Bates) Paine, Kelly Bates, Carson Paine

Erin Paine is nearing the end of her pregnancy with Brooklyn Elise. She is doing very well, although she says she is ready to have the baby.

Due to the blood clotting disorder that she also dealt with during her first pregnancy, Erin must have two injections daily. According to Kelly, "Her little tummy is black and blue."

When asked how many kids she and Chad plan to have, Erin laughingly replied: "I think two?" The expectant mother said she couldn't imagine having 19 children.

Like we did with Kaci Bates, why don't you all tell us when you think Brooklyn Paine will arrive and how much she will weigh at birth. Post your guesses as a comment, and we will announce the names of those who are closest.

  2. "I think two". The wisest words I've ever seen on this blog. I hope that is true.

    1. Sadly most Christians don't want very many children. Christians should happily accept as many of God's most wonderful gifts that He wants to bless us with. I wanted a lot of children. But for some reason I had difficulty conceiving. I have three daughters, oldest is 41 & twins now 37. I think if Christians had more children, it could make a big difference in making our nation turn back to God.

    2. Continuing to risk Erin's health for an unscriptural ideology is not wise. Elizabeth--Mary's cousin--had one child who was John the Baptist. He sure impacted the world for Christ all without any siblings.

    3. There is no law in the bible that states Christians shold have as many children as possible. Legalism is what causes most religious arguments btw.

    4. Amen!!!!! I agree 100%

      One of the very first commandments was to "be fruitful and multiply" (Genesis 1:28)

      Obviously there are instances where women are barren, or they've chosen to serve God as a single woman; in which case God is not going to be displeased with the fact that you are not following Genesis 1:28. However, He will be displeased when for selfish reasons you do not die to yourself, and allow Him to have dominion over every area of your life.

      "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you" (Matthew 6:33)

      But seek the first the Kingdom of God.....

    5. Erin is being smart, with her clotting disorder if she has too many pregnancies it's going to end badly for both Erin and Baby, it's a matter of time. I'm a nurse by the way

    6. To anon 5:03 she has been fruitful and multiplied. God never said how many times. If you believe in the bible and god you have to believe that he set up a women's cycle the way that he did for a reason. If God wants them to have more kids he will put it on their hearts to do so. My parents wanted to have four kids and felt God wanted that. They were only able to have three. My mom almost died trying for number four. Should she have kept trying? No.

    7. I'm confused as to how anyone thinks they get an opinion on the topic other than Erin and her husband. How many children she has is not up for public discussion, and what their reasoning is for that decision is DEFINITELY nobody else's business. Just because someone is in the public eye, it does not take away their right to privacy. I'm pretty sure the question asked was how big do you think her baby is going to be, nothing more.

    8. He who can't provide for his own is worse than an unbeliever, and foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child are two verses that get me every time when people ask if I'm going to have more kids. It obviously takes money to feed a family, and even more money to provide for a large one. How biblical would it be to encourage people to continue having babies when they are financial struggling. Just don't, especially when you don't know peoples financial means. I used to live in an apartment where I had to call the police almost daily because crime was really bad. Every Sunday my husband and I went to church with our baby and the paster would ask me if we're going to have more kids. I told him he should come visit my apartment. After weeks of this harassment from this paster I told him I'd no longer be attending his church if he wouldn't stop telling me I should have more kids. What person in their right mind wants to bring a baby up in a tiny apartment where crime is rampet? It would be irresponsible to do that. PERIOD!! When I was pregnant with my second this same paster basically told me to fly a kite when my husband and I needed help paying a bill...WOW, feeling the love, not! Part of parenting is protecting your children, providing a safe place for them to live and play, etc...God never told people to harass other people about the number of children they are to have. Please don't do it!

  18. That light grey/dark grey top that Erin has on is the same one that she wore the day she went into labor with Carson, and that's the only time we've seen it, until now. So, maybe she's telling us something!!! So, my guess is July 30th, 5 pounds, 11 ounces

  43. I love Erin's response to how many children she will have. I have four boys, and I constantly get asked if I'm going to try for a girl. My response is I'm perfectly content with the children I've been given, and know that I could keep having kids and they could ALL be boys. There is a family in the US who has thirteen boys, I kid you not... I often wonder why people think they have some say in the number of children I should have. They won't be changing the diapers, waking up in the middle of the night to feed, change and take care of the crying baby...or buy the child the necessities, so why do people butt into others lives with such questions as...are you going to have more children? Its really none of anyone else's business! I LOVE my children, but really?

  45. i think she will come
    august 13 weigh 5lbs and 5oz and will be 20 inchs long love you guys

  46. I'm not going to do the math but since she had a placental abruption with Carson I would imagine she will be induced at 37 weeks. I had a placental abruption with my third child and they scheduled my c section at 37 weeks with my fourth. I believe that is common practice when dealing with past abruptions.
