I'll be 39 1/2 too!  Maybe that's the day for all of us!  Wouldn't that be great?! biggrinbounce.gif  I had some pretty strong contractions last night, but nothing consistent.  I would be doubly happy with tomorrow considering it's my daughter's last day of school...I'm thinking a late evening, early night birth would be perfect!

I'll be 40+4. I really hope something happens - Thursday is my next prenatal appointment and I don't want to have to talk induction.

DDCC — Good luck, ladies! I totally credit the full moon with sending me into labor. There was no indication of anything happening, and then BAM! Super fast labor and baby born just as the full moon reached its peak over our house. joy.gif

 

Don't underestimate that moon gravity!

Jeez I sure hope so.  DH has been predicting a June 15th birth since the start, and he doesn't know about the full moon thing.  He's often bang-on with his predictions (he was adamant from the start that it'd be a girl despite all my "it's totally a boy" signs that were the same as with my son; he's guessing a 6lb 9oz birth despite the fact that the other two were 8 and a half pounds....my u/s last week showed the baby hovering around 6lbs...)

 

I really hope he's right on this one, because I'm ready to meet my daughter!  Beyond ready!  C'mon moon babies!

i'll be 39 weeks, 2 days tomorrow and i'd love to have a full moon baby. we thought for sure he was going to come early w/ last month's full moon.  good luck everyone!

The full moon has never had a pull on my labours so no, I expect nothing. I do, however, have three appointments on Friday (I'll be 41w) that I do not want to make - chiro, MW and an NST. Today would be a nice day to birth my baby!

I'm 38 weeks, so from the beginning I've doubted that the full moon would play a role, this month or next.   I think the baby will come sometime in the middle.   Do new moons do anything?  Here's hoping!

yup, my due date was last sunday/monday and with a breech baby i don't want to go too far overdue. please come to us little one!!! good luck everyone, will be interesting to hear what happens...

I'm hoping(but not putting too much faith into it) that tomorrow will be our day as well...  I'm not too far past my date yet(I've seen what beyond 42w looks like), but it would be nice to have a special little moon baby.  :)

 

Also, I think I read there will be a lunar eclipse??

Ooh, I'd forgotten about that. It'd be nice... I'm 40+6 today, so, yeah. Sadly, I don't have any solid pre-labour indications like losing my mucous plug or anything, so I'm not too hopeful.

 

I just spent a few hours doing vigorous housecleaning. It hasn't started labour, but hey, my house is a lot cleaner! Some time later today I'll try to convince DH to take me for a long walk, too. And I might buy some fresh pineapple from the supermarket.

Hmmm...it'd be nice, but I'm only 38+2 so I think baby will hang around for another week or so at the very least. I have my midwife appt. tomorrow night. It'd be nice not to have to make the drive and just have her come here for my birthing time instead, but I'm not going to hold my breath!

 

Interesting information though - I'd never heard that before!

post #14 of 25

I wish it would happen tomorrow, but I'm thinking I've still got 2-3 weeks left. With all the pressure I feel in my bum and the sweet little feet stretching the top of my uterus it would be sweet relief though. :)

me me me me me me!!! I'm 39 weeks, my favorite midwife is on call and this week is super light on activities with my other kids! Come on moon, work your magic!!!!!!!

Yes it will be! Does this make it even more "birthy"?! smile.gif Although unfortunately those if us in N. America won't be able to see it!(http://www.ibtimes.com/articles/163358/20110615/google-total-lunar-eclipse-2011-longest-africa-asia-europe-australia-where-view-who-can-see-moon-sun.htm).

I certainly wouldn't be opposed to it! DH predicted today before he knew it was a full moon. At 38 1/2 weeks though next Wed seems more likely... which just sounds like an eternity from now! I think my body is moon-immune though. orngtongue.gif

Anyone have articles or links to the influence of full moon?   Just curious!

post #19 of 25

Yep, I would love to go into labor today, lol. I'm "only" 39w 1d, but DS decided to come at 36.5 so yeah, I'm totally ready. I don't really feel like having a 9 or 10 pound baby and with every passing week I can't help but wonder, lol.
