It's taking a while for one consequence of Hurricane Ike to take effect - nine months, to be exact.

Many people were stranded at home with no electricity for days or even weeks after Ike slammed Southeast Texas on Sept. 13.

Several obstetrical practices associated with The Woman's Hospital of Texas say they're expecting a mini-baby boom.

Dr. Rakhi Dimino with Houston Women's Care Associates spent several days after Ike at home with her husband with no electricity. She's set to give birth to her first child June 10.

She told the Houston Chronicle she was doing "what everybody else in Houston was doing."
