Hurricane babies

Okay - something that I've been meaning to blog about since last Friday. My friend just had a baby two weeks ago - he's really cute. But, she said that they sent her home pretty much the same day (even though she was induced). He ended up with severe jaundice, and rather than admit her and the baby back into the hospital, they brought the tanning booth (aka photolamp bed) to her house to use. Why? THERE WAS NO ROOM FOR WOMEN AND BABIES! Yes, the hospital was PACKED. Why? - Hurricane babies. Nine months ago was our first storm - so, you have no power, you can't drive or go to work, and you're bored. What does everyone do? (except me of course...) HAVE SEX - and make babies. The next storm was about 2-3 weeks later and the final storm was 2 weeks after that. Wow - the hospitals are going to be up to their eyeballs in babies. Hopefully, for other reasons rather than baby-making, we won't have another storm season like we did. But, in about 6 years, we're going to need a TON more elementary schools - LOL!

you know what? my brother and his wife had their baby a few saturdays ago. they had the same problem. they got to the hospital around 1 pm, and didn't get admitted til 4:30 PM. why you ask? there wasn't any room for them, too! I asked my mom, "Hmmm, what in the world was going on 9 months ago? maybe an earthquake?" :)

There was a boom of births on the east coast 9 months after the 9-11 tragedy also, stress makes babies...

So the birds and the bees are not the only things that make babies? :)
