Welcoming a child into the world is an amazing experience.

The labor isn't so magical, however...The labor of childbirth is known for being one of the most painful things that the human body can experience.
Labor is different for every woman.
via: GettyDespite the fact that labor is pretty much guaranteed to be painful, it varies slightly for every woman; no labor is the same.
This can depend on the woman's genetics...As well as her tolerance to pain, her body type, and even the size of the baby.
They must have an incredibly high pain threshold!But one mom has been defying all of the odds over the years by safely delivering all fifteen of her children... and she now has another one on the way.
Thirty-eight-year-old Patty Hernandez and her husband, Carlos, live with their brood in North Carolina.
via: FacebookTheir fifteen children consist of 6 sets of twins, 5 boys, and 10 girls. Feeling confused yet?
Their names begin with a C to honor their father, Carlos.
via: FacebookThere's Carlos Jr, twelve, Christopher, eleven, Carla, 9, Caitlyn, 9, Cristian, 8, Celeste, 7, Cristina, 6, Calvin, 5, Catherine, 5, Carol, 4, Caleb, 3, Caroline, 3, Camilla, 2, Charlie, one and Crystal, 4 months.
And now, Patty is pregnant with her sixteenth child.
via: FacebookSpeaking in an interview, Patty spoke of how she's always "happy when she's pregnant." "Around 3 months after I have a baby I usually get pregnant again."
Her job as a full-time mom is perhaps one of the most demanding jobs ever.
via: Getty"When the kids play, they often leave toys on the floor so I need to clean that up too."
But Patty makes sure that the older kids pull their weight.
via: Getty"I try to give them a daily routine to clean up after themselves. They have their own chores. The older one makes his own pancakes sometimes, but most of the time I am the one doing the cooking."
It turns out that Patty and Carlos spend a whopping $495 a week on groceries and nappies...And ahead of the new arrival, they are currently shopping for a new vehicle as they have outgrown their sixteen-seater bus. Wow.
The family always manages to make ends meet, however...And they're eagerly awaiting the arrival of their newborn in the next few months.
As long as they're happy, that's all that matters!"People ask me all the time, ‘are they all yours?'. Everybody’s amazed when they find out how many kids I have, especially because I’m such a petite person."
