August 2011 Moms

Baby boom

I found out a few weeks ago babies have been sprouting out the yin-yang in the hospital I'm going to be delivering at. A busy week for them is about 17babies that week they delivered more that 40babies!!! They had to have women in the hallway while the babies stayed in the nursery. I spoke to my doctor about it and she said it'll only get worse! She has been triple booking prenatal visits and this summer is going to be a huge baby boom. AHHHHH I hope there's room! Are you guys noticing that around you?

Re: Baby boom

  • It seems like tons of people I know are pregnant - so it certainly feels like a baby boom to me!! I figured it was because I'm in my late 20's and a lot of my friends are people in their late 20's or early 30's who I met through grad school and we're finally at the point in life where we can start families.
  • I know a couple of others due in August, and at least 7 due in September.

  • Don't know any 'in real life' pregnant women but it does seem that there are tons of pregnant celebs at the moment.

  • It's so scary to think about how it's going to be when I'm in pain and not feeling myself for L&D. I hope there's room for us cause I really don't like the idea of not being able to see my baby because they are busy.

    I have 3 co-workers and 3 friends who are pregnant.  We are all due within 2 months of each other.   We have women at my office that literally refuse to drink the water in our building for fears that they are going to get pregnant too ;)

    Yes, I am noticing it as well.  I am delivering at a small hospital and when my son was born there was only one other delivering mom there at the same time as me.  It was awesome!  Since there are only two rooms with birthing tubs I hope there is one available for me when the time comes!

  • Oh yes, this may not seem like a lot, but I live in a small town where usually babies only arrive a couple a month at the hospital.  There are at least 6 due in August.  Just hopefully they won't be too close together.  There are two L & D rooms and one is really nice and the other is just nice.  I am hoping for the one with the jacuzzi tub :)
  • I know people due every month between June - December... The majority being October and November.

    We had HORRIBLE blizzards here in AL 3 weeks in a row in February, and 9 months later it seems like everybody's got a baby coming ;) I guess they did what they could to stay warm! ha!
