Date: 
Monday, February 1, 1932 to Wednesday, August 31, 1932
Notes: 

We have chosen these dates because in February Lena would have been about three months pregnant, perhaps starting to show, and the text is unclear on exactly when or how many times she says this to herself.

Summary: 

At least once after learning that she is pregnant, Lena thought that she got pregnant young because she had lots of experience taking care of her brother's children.
