A western Michigan couple with 12 sons are waiting to find out whether baby No. 13 keeps the streak going – or finally breaks it. Jay and Kateri Schwandt’s baby is due Saturday, the day before Mother’s Day. They’re sticking to their tradition of not finding out in advance whether they’re having a boy or girl. They said they’d be shocked if the baby is a girl. ‘The odds are not in our favor,’ Kateri Schwandt, 40.
Kateri Schwandt has a lot of experience with big families, growing up as one of 14 children, and said she finds motherhood to be ‘very rewarding.’ ‘I love being pregnant,’ she said. ‘I’ve spent half of my life being pregnant. It’s very neat and very special.’
