Here are some articles I found re full moon/labor:

http://ezinearticles.com/?The-Moons-...birth&id=70253

According to the first one, it has more to do with unstable barometric pressure. Off to search about that...
Thanks for the links they where interesting. My midwife says she tends to get more around the full and even more so during a new moon. I went back and checked my children's previous birth dates. My son was born on a full moon, my twins where born a few days before but they where induced. I can't wait to see if we get any full moon babies.

doesn't look like it worked for me, heh.

I have a miserable cold and i just can't seem to get over it. I've apparently lost my plug (or am still losing it), still having tons of contrax, labor signs etc, and even almost called DH home from work on Halloween night cause it sure felt like labor.
But nope. I HATE this last bit of pregnancy.

Getting my membranes stripped tomorrow, and stressing a bit. We pushed my EDD as far forward as was logical due to legal reasons, so I'm not "on paper due" til 11/5--but really, it's 100% likely i'm already due or overdue. I know it'd be easier to have a doctor overseeing things now IF i have to end up going to the hossy--but emotionally, I can't address that yet. Of course, getting an appt will take time, etc, and i'll have to have NSTs done if I get to 41w (Nov 12)....i cannot cope with having another crazy-late baby!!

My body is giving the kind of signs that REAL labor could start in, oh, about 10 minutes. But I was here for weeks--WEEKS--last time.

full moon didn't work for me either. just more false/prodromal/latent whatever you want to call it labor. Bummer.

I walked like a maniac on the treadmill AND forced myself on my husband, and nada. The moon was useless for me!

Nothing for me either Just lots of contractions that never stabilized.

I squatted, took my stairs two at a time, seduced my husband, took 4 EPO capsules, AND drank a super strong tincture of RRL tea, and all I got to show for the full moon were a few BH that woke me up a couple times in the night. Sheesh. All that hard work for nuthin'.

I was walking the dog last night and noticed the full moon, and had the same thought as everyone of how many full moon babies we'd get.

Then I got curious about the new moon - Nov's will fall on the 16th ... 3 days before my EDD! I'm curious now to see how many new moon babies we'll get for comparison's sake (and keeping my fingers crossed for one myself!).

Thanks for nothing full moon. I sat in the non-hot tub last night for a bit and gave the moon a piece of my mind. I think he was offended, but I'm sure he'll get over it.

I also made the decision that I cannot take this mental torture one more day, so in my mind I have officially changed my own due date to November 12th. I'm not even physically " miserable and so done with being pregnant," it's the mind game for the last two weeks that I can't seem to stop and it is driving me batty.
"I could go into labor any minute. Was that twinge the beginning of a contraction? I wonder if tonight will be the night? Should I go get more bananas or will these be enough to last through labor? I pooped twice today, maybe that means I will go into labor soon. Gee, this dinner could be the last thing I eat before labor starts. Hey, today could be the day I have a baby. No, I probably shouldn't give in to my craving of french fries right now in case I go into labor."

I have no idea how to stop those thoughts.

Now I am at the point where I think I will not go into labor on my own. Ever. Today will not be the day I have my baby. Or tomorrow. Or the next day. My baby does not want to come out. So I am going to go eat french fries. And maybe even drink a friggin soda.

MamieCole, I can totally relate, I have the same thoughts!!! It is stupid for me to do it because I am not due really until the 12th, but I have been so sure I would have this baby early since I have had prodromal labor almost all the time since 34/35 weeks!!!

I walked, bounced on my exercise ball and have strong contractions 5-7 min apart all yesterday afternoon/night. (Really not that unusual, can't contribute it to the moon at all.) This morning they are back to there typical 15-20 mins.

mamiecole, I have the same thoughts! My EDD is by LMP and confirmed at the 12w u/s, but I know I didn't ovulate until day 17-19, so really should mentally push my EDD back . . . but I can't bear to! The midwife has said she won't let me go past 41+6, which is November 20th. I really, really, don't want to go that long. I don't want to go to work another day! but have to. oh well.

The feeling is mutual. I am still cracking up about your "Omg, are you STLL rude?" mental snark.

Thanks for appreciating my insane rants. My husband seems to have lost that ability.

I know! It's like mental water torture or something. Silly babies with their "own timeline."
