Baby fever seems to have struck all over the country right now: these viral baby boom photos are proof there really must be something in the water at these workplaces, because everyone is pregnant!

Nearly half of the 15 teachers at Oak Street Elementary School in Goddard, Kansas are expecting. Two of the seven teachers just welcomed their babies this week and there are five more on the way. That’s certainly a lot of substitutes in the future for the students of Oak Street.

“I was very excited, obviously, because this is great news,” Ashley Miller, the school’s principal told ABC News. “After the third one I was a little in shock, the fourth one I was really in shock, the fifth one I didn’t know what to say and by the seventh one I had to remember to congratulate her because my first words were, ‘Are you kidding me?’”

Oak Street Elementary isn’t the only place experiencing a baby boom. Seven nurses all working in the same unit at Sparrow Hospital in Lansing, Michigan are pregnant at the same time. Of the 18 nurses in the neurology unit, seven nurses are expecting, with three due this month and two others who just had babies earlier this year.

Not to be outdone, nine nurses at Maine Medical Center in Portland—in the labor and delivery unit no less—are pregnant! All the expectant moms are due between April and July.

“It is really nice coming to work and seeing other people who are just as pregnant watching their bellies pop and just talking about these experiences that we are going through together,” nurse Amanda Spear told WMTW. At least they all know what to expect!
