As of this moment, I know 10 women who are pregnant – all due at different times of the year. These are people I actually know, not just celebrities and their pregnancies. I remember a couple of years ago, I knew 14 women who were expecting! That’s a lot of babies. And a whole lot of baby showers! And then the birthday parties! (And we don’t need to mention all those diaper changes, clothing changes and laundry, right?) 😉

So it got me thinking, could it be something in the water? Or is it a cyclical pattern that women get pregnant every so often? Or is it, perhaps, that I’m just at a phase in my life when almost everyone in my age group is moving on to the next phase of life? Whatever it is, it’s quite amazing that I know so many women who will be giving birth and holding a new bundle of joy within the year.

Congratulations to all my family and friends!

At the birth of my baby — born after numerous sonograms throughout my pregnancy all indicated that I was having a baby girl — lo and behold the doctor announces, “You have a boy!” I immediately responded, “I don’t think so.” The doctor laughed and explained to me how his years of medical school and years of practice qualified him to see that I had a son – however, I still questioned him for a few minutes longer, stunned as I was that previous medical tests and staff had convinced me I was having a girl.

You guessed it…back to the drawing board on the nursery colors and returning all the pretty pink dresses from my baby shower — as well as the baby name!
