Couple with 12 boys is expecting baby thirteen & DAD wants a girl!
Jay and Kateri Schwandt are over the moon because they are expecting their baby number thirteen. Yes, you read correctly, the couple already has twelve children and the best part of it is that they are all boys. Can you imagine? Jay is hoping his next baby is a girl, but his wife Kateri doubts it because clearly her husband is a "boy" maker. The baby will be born in May and the Schwandts are not finding out the sex before the birth.

Kateri and Jay are Catholics and they don't believe in birth control. Kateri loves being pregnant! I bet she does, she has the children to prove it. She came from a big family, thirteen siblings to be exact and she always knew she was going to have a big family. Kateri has been pregnant most of her life; her oldest son is twenty-two and the smallest one is a little over a year. Wow! I don't even know how she does it. For me, two were more than enough. She must have the patience of a saint!
Jay is happy with his twelve boys, but is hoping to break his personal record and produce a girl. He is an expert in everything that has to do with boys and would like to explore "girl" territory. To be honest, I'm a bit torn about my desires. On one hand, I want them to have a girl so they know how different they are from boys, but I worry about it because it will be very difficult for her to grow up with twelve brothers. Being the youngest of thirteen is not easy and being the only girl must be a nightmare. Good luck being a teenage girl sweetie. Going to a party? Run it by your brothers! Dating? That's completely out of the question!
All joking aside, Kateri and Jay are ready to welcome the newest member of their family, whether it's a boy or a girl. All they want is a healthy baby to join their happy bunch. Their sons can't wait for the big day and they have become local celebrities because everyone is talking about this peculiar family. Neighbors, friends and family members want to see whether the record will be broken by a baby girl. I'm dying of curiosity, but unfortunately we have to wait several months. I'm sure their community will have fun predicting and betting on the baby's sex. Congratulations and good luck!
