Sixteen nurses at a hospital in Mesa, Arizona have all concurrently gotten pregnant, to the surprise of many. It is somewhat odd when all 16 expectant mothers are nurses in one unit there.

Most of the sixteen pregnant nurses who work together in the intensive care unit at Banner Desert Medical Center pose for a group photograph after attending a news conference where they all talked about being pregnant at the same time, with majority due to give birth between October and January, Friday, Aug. 17, 2018, in Mesa, Ariz.

Pregnant nurse Ashley Adkins added: 'They just roll their eyes! I was like, 'Oh, well, I didn't plan this.

Her pregnant colleague Jolene Garrow joked: "We all formulated this plan to have the holidays off".

Being pregnant doesn't keep the nurses from performing most of their regular duties-but they need to be a little extra careful.

"The 16 nurses are from three different critical care units", said Heather Francis, nursing director for various ICU units at Banner.
