    Has anyone else noticed just about everyone seems to be getting pregnant this year? It's crazy!

    Hubby and I finally get pregnant after 7 years
    My sister is due in October
    My cousin is due in April (yay!)
    Hubbys cousin just had her first *they've been together a bit longer than DH and myself*
    My BIL and SIL are due in September with their first *been together a year or two longer than hubby and myself*
    And I just found out my aunt is pregnant!

    It seems just about everyone is getting knocked up this year, has anyone else noticed it?

    I have noticed this too......
    My SIL has just had a baby
    My hubby's cousins is due March
    One of my friends is due Sept
    Two of my friends are due in Oct
    One of my friends is due in Nov
    And another of my friends is going through IVF, so hopefully some good news soon.
    And loads of my old school friends from facebook have posted scan pics, or their newborns at least 15 of them (Although I did go to an all girl's school, so there is bound to be more women, lol!)

    Experts were predicting a baby boom this year due to the credit crunch. I guess it just goes to show how much more time we must be spending in the house, lol.

    Apparently it happens during recessions and times of high unemployment!

    It could be that we're all reaching an age where we've either planned babies or just felt more ready to, quite a few of our friends who are the same age or married in the last 4 years or so are expecting in the next 6 months! baby madness but good for us all as we'll have a great support network when they all arrive!
