the full moon is tomorrow, ladies.

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Usually, the way it goes is that the day(s) before the moon is at it's fullest, we get a run of deliveries, then the actual day of the full moon, it's quiet. So here's hoping that those who want to deliver go ahead and go, and those of us that want to keep our babies cooking keep those suckers in the oven.

When is it next month? I think I'll shoot for that one.

I want to keep this one baking, so send me stay-in-baby vibes.

If I wait until next time on the 22nd, I will be 41+5. With the baby being so low right now that it hurts to walk and turn over in bed, I don't think I can wait until the next full moon. But, I'm fine with it not being a full moon for delivery also! Lol. I am curious to see how many and who goes tonight or at least starts tonight!

I've been having a couple of mild, irregular contractions since yesterday evening, and it's just my general feeling that I won't go much longer, even if le babe doesn't come out tomorrow.

Besides, I'd be 43 weeks by the next full moon, and that's NOT something I'm aiming for.

i'm thinking more likely the jan full moon.. but hopefully before then! im due jan 11th and i don't want to have to wait till the 20th, but my daughter was 16 days late, so its totally possible. im not quite ready for baby now but if i did go into labour i would embrace it!

I'm due on the 30th, but have had this feeling from the very beginning that I'll go between the 18th and 21st ~ so, that fits with the January full moon!

ELVs to all!

I'm aiming for the new moon in January. That'd suit me just fine.

The full moon in January would be too late for me (I'm straddling the Dec/Jan DDCs as it is). It looks like the upcoming one will be more likely for me!

I'm only 35w1d right now, so I definitely don't want to go tomorrow, buuuuut...with a csection scheduled for January 15th, I'd kinda like to go before that (my OB has told me that if I go into spontaneous labor on my own prior to the scheduled section, she will let me VBAC...and then we'd have to do the rest of the surgery that needs to be done after I've recovered from the birth a bit). It would mean 2 hospital stays and be more expensive, but it would be kinda nice.

yeah.....I"ll take the one in Jan. I am due on the 18th so that would be about right. Plus .....please....I have so much to do.....the holidays to get through...... and-so many good movies I still need to catch in the theater.....

Well, as tired and achy as I feel I will take this one. I am 38 weeks today. So the chances are slim to none and slim just left town.

But man my lower back/hips/knees/legs and now my shoulders are flu like achy...I hope I am not getting sick again. Bah.

I'll take this one, LOL! I'm only 11 days shy of 40 weeks, and would be like...43 weeks by next month, so I'm definitely NOt waiting, LOL!

I am feeling the exact same way...my whole body is achy, my neck to my hips, I feel pretty off and I am having very loose bm. This could be my body preparing for labor, or I could just be getting sick . At this point, I am hoping it is the first option.

I said before I did not want a Christmas baby, now, I really don't care, he can come if he wants to. There is no way I am going to make it until next month's full moon!

Oh I hope this is the push I need to go into labour! I've lost my mucus plug, had the bloody show... and still NOTHING! I have had false labour every night for the past week. I hope this is the end of it!

I am in the same boat with you and happymomma. Oh please babies, come soon. Lots of rest and sleep today helped me. I have been shuffling around looking pathetic and dh has encouraged me to get some rest today.
