Something in the water? Nine registered nurses who work in the labor and delivery unit at the largest hospital in Maine are expecting babies in the next few months, reports the AP. Maine Medical Center announced the bonanza of babies with a Facebook post on Monday featuring eight of the nine nurses and their respective bumps. The army of infants is expected to arrive between April and July. The Portland hospital's photo showed the nurses wearing their hospital scrubs and holding cards indicating their due dates. WMTW reports the nurses plan to be there for each other's deliveries. (Sixteen nurses at an Arizona hospital were pregnant at the same time.)
