Nurse Jolene Garrow joked: 'We all formulated this plan to have the holidays off!'
Garrow said that as their pregnancies have progressed, the patients have begun noticing that most of the nurses around them are expecting. 
One patient insisted on touching her belly the night before, she said.
Garrow added that their non-pregnant colleagues have been great at helping with patients they should not be exposed to because of conditions or treatments that are potentially dangerous for expectant women, such as tuberculosis or shingles or chemotherapy because of the radiation.
'They just roll their eyes!' she laughed. 'More baby talk!'
Hospital officials noted that the Banner medical center chain has a pool of floating nurses that should ensure shifts are covered when their ICU nursing specialists begin taking their 12-week maternity leaves starting in the fall.
The nurses said their colleagues are throwing a group baby shower next week. The hospital on Friday gave the women one-piece rompers reading, 'Relax! My mom is a Banner nurse!'
