It must be in the water

It seems like recently everyone either just had a baby or is pregnant. In Bret's residency program there are 16 residents (4 for each year). In the last six months 3 residents and one resident's wife had a baby. Right now 3 residents are currently pregnant (1 is even pregnant with twins) and two have made it know that they are trying to get pregnant. That is a lot of babies from a pretty small group.

My friend Matt and his wife had their beautiful twins this past Monday and all are doing great.

It just seems like everyone around is pregnant. Sometimes I wonder if it is just what we notice. You know how when you were really wanting to get engaged or had just got engaged it seemed like EVERYONE else had a ring or were going to get a ring soon. Maybe it was because you were totally in tune with that topic that you took more notice right?

No we are not pregnant...or at least I don't think I'm pregnant. You never know. I have a follow up visit with my OB Monday for the post surgery appointment. I always hate that dreaded question that they have to ask...is there any chance you could be pregnant? Well....

I asked Bret what his favorite answers were to that question. He said that I would not believe how many people say "no, no way..there is no possible way that I could be pregnant" and low and behold they are pregnant.

He had to explain to 13 year old one time that yes you could get pregnant through cotton underwear. (Even I had to think about that one). People TALK to your kids.

Anyways I guess this just leads me to think that maybe baby is on the brain. We know we want more kids but the question is more about when. The original "game plan" was to be delivering this spring but as you can see that has gone out the window (surgery, work, daycare costs, etc). So instead we shall see.

"He had to explain to 13 year old one time that yes you could get pregnant through cotton underwear."

REALLY???? Damn, apparently I'm as dumb as a 13 year old!

Julia, I had to think about that one too when he first told me. His response was "duh, why do you think they use latex for condoms...so NOTHING can get through"
