You mean you haven’t heard? For so long now, the old wives tale that many women will get pregnant on a leap year stuck to my mind. I got three emails from friends who announced that they are with child and one friend announced through her blog that she is finally pregnant with her first child after more than a year of trying! Congratulations, L & P!
A simple Google search and I got this:
The Hebrew calendar shows that 2008 is a leap year. A leap year is referred to in Hebrew as Shanah Me’uberet, or a pregnant year.
Not convinced yet? If you observe closely, there are so many Hollywood celebrities who are pregnant this year. Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman, among others. Maybe there will be more who will show baby bumps, if the leap year power is true. I just hope Britney Spears isn’t among them!
So, any pregnant woman around you?
Here in Dubai, lately there are lots of pregnant ladies in the park when I jog/hike at night.
