Did you know…

…that at any one time, 4% of women in the United States are pregnant?

…fewer than 10% of babies are born on their exact due date?

…carrying a baby “high” or “low” is dependent on the woman’s body type and can’t really tell you if it’s a boy or a girl?

…pregnant women have a heightened sense of smell, which some experts believe is the body’s way of protecting a pregnant woman from foods that might harmful to the baby?

…the average size for a full term baby is 8 pounds?

…that a first pregnancy lasts longer than any subsequent ones?

…hospitals have reported that Labor & Delivery is busier during thunderstorms?

…the average weight gain for a pregnant women is about 30 pounds?

…the average age of the first time mother is 25-29?

…that Arizona has the third highest birth rate in the U.S.?

…the Girl and her beau MJ, who also live in Arizona, are going to have a baby, too?!

…that means I have TWO grandbabies on the way?

…we are beside ourselves with happiness??
