This is not a pregnancy pact, but a lovely coincidence taking place at one elementary school in Goddard, Kansas.


Out of the 15 total teachers at Oak Street Elementary, seven of them are expecting babies sometime between March and October of 2019.

The school shared the news with their Facebook followers.



When fourth grade teacher Tara Johnson was the seventh person to find out she was pregnant, she went and told her boss.

She said principal Ashley Miller was flabbergasted.

"I was sitting down at my computer, and I had turned around and said to her, 'Are you kidding me?' Then, I had to tell her congratulations," said Miller.

One of the women is even pregnant with twins, meaning a total of eight babies are joining the Oak Street Elementary family.

"To me, it just becomes comical because like it was a lot when there were three of us and then there were four of us and then there were five of us and then there were seven of us, so it just kind of became funny to me at that point," said Johnson to KSN.





"One of the things the Goddard School District talks about a lot is being one big family. That's one of the things that they really push and really strive for and so this kind of proves it," said Kelli Jo Sheahon, one of the other moms-to-be-the one who is expecting twins.

Meanwhile, principal Ashley Miller joked that it might be a good investment to add a nursery to the school.







Miller has already found long term substitutes to fill the positions of the roughyl half of her staff who will be gone on maternity leave for the near future.

"What we really need right now is a sponsorship from, like, Pampers or Huggies or somebody," she joked.

The women, though bewildered at the coincidence, say they're happy to be experiencing pregnancy and motherhood together.

We will be sending well wishes to Goddard, Kansas for safe births and happy motherhood!

Meanwhile in Maine, NINE labor and delivery nurses at Maine Medical Center in Portland, Maine are all expecting.

The hospital shared the news with a photo of eight of the nine.

Food is a totally subjective thing. What has one person drooling might leave another dry-heaving just thinking about.

Having said that, some stuff is just plain ... wrong.

Secrets, we all have them. Some will be spilled over time and some will go to the grave.

Mine are going to the grave. Just in case you were waiting for a truth sharing moment, there it is.

Others often feel the need to shed their secrets. Secrets can weigh on you.

So every once in awhile people start letting loose, because it's the only way to free yourself.

That's why you get a therapist, to share the most shocking, intimate details of your life. To spill and be free.

Or... naturally, you come to Reddit.

"What have you never told anyone?"

Sometimes it's time to stop the world for a few minutes, relax, and unwind. Slip into a warm bath or have a nice glass of wine on the side to really drive that comfort and relaxation home.

We work ourselves to death most days without any acknowledgment for the absolute limit to which we are pushing our bodies. With the world constantly swirling around us as this happens, it can feel a little like there is no respite.

That's why we need to learn things that really comfort us. About the world, about other people, whatever. We need some comfort to take so that we can bring some stillness into our crazy world.

Everyone has an opinion and apparently that opinion is golden advice. (Two different things)

You can give opinions, but know what you're saying and sharing.

Advice is more... heavy. It's definitive.

So beware and take "advice" with a grain of salt.

Redditor PsychedelicAirFusion wanted to hear about the times other people should've just stayed quiet with their opinions, by asking:

"What's the worst advice you have received?"
