That a LOT of us will have our babies next weekend.

There is a full moon on the 2nd of July, next friday.

Midwifer had her babe on the new moon, I wonder just how many of us will end up with our babes on the full moon?

I am so hoping for July 2nd, as well. Fingers crossed over here ~ I'm ready. I've got an appt that afternoon and, if I haven't made anymore progress, they're going to "discuss" induction by week 41. That's what they think. Been there, done that and there is no way it's happening again.

on the one hand, i really hope you're right!

... on the other hand, i'm thinking...

* i'd love to go to 42 weeks and have a wonderful unnassisted home birth w/ a perfectly healthy, happy little baby, and prove all those idiots wrong who say that women shouldn't go past 40 (or 38, or 36...).......

* there's still so much to do! laundry, dishes, mopping, sweeping...

* i haven't even gotten the paperwork in to my health insurance office yet and it's been two months, how can i possibly expect to be responsible enough to handle two kids?!?! (ok, there are other issues w/ the paperwork... but STILL.)

* i love feeling the baby move. i'll be so sad when this is all over.


.... etc.

Oh, please not me! I am soooooo not ready. And I would only be 37 weeks...

On the other hand, my MW told me not to worry about getting stuff ready, "All you need is a boob and a bed. Other people can get stuff organized for you."

I like your MW! Simplicity is key.

There are a lot of us due next weekend, as well as the full moon. I really hope that not too many of us who aren't due go into labour next weekend, just us due mammas.

Healthy babies for all!!!

I'm really hoping for a 4th of July baby I think it would be so cool to always have fireworks and celebrating going on on your birthday....Also, it's always a holiday from work. Of course, whatever day he decides to come will always be a holiday for me

Your midwife is right and wrong. Everyone else would get it organized and then it would take me 3 weeks instead of one to figure out what the heck they did with everything and reorganize it the right way so that I could function with three kids!! Thankfully I will be off work after this week!!

My parents have a week's vacation out of state planned from July 12-18, so this baby can't come before that because we will have nobody to watch our older kids!

For those of us due a little later (I'm due the 21st), I'm hoping for a Full MOON baby on July 31st.

But, in all actuality, I want the baby to come when ready.

Does anybody know if the full moon makes things flow more smoothly/quickly/easily?

I know it puts a lot of women into labor!

I heard someone say that the New Moon Babies have awesome Moon Energy and the Full Moon Babies have awesome Sun Energy. Either way: light.

i've been thinking about this...

i really want to go see the fireworks display w/ my son, because he's only ever seen fireworks in movies and books and i think he'd love seeing them...

but if i go into labor on the full moon, we won't be able to go!

I will only be at 37 weeks so hope the full moon doesn't push this babe out too soon. However, he/she's apparently already measuring over 7 pounds so I wouldn't worry if it happened. Plus, b/c of GD my midwives and ob's keep talking about maybe having to induce early or at 40 weeks latest and I REALLY don't want that ...... would make natural birth soooooo much harder.

Can't wait to hear all the birth stories this coming weekend though!!

Snowbaby ~ I was in your shoes last time around and got induced at 40 weeks. Hope they let you wait that long and that induction isn't even necessary. I know "they" are usually sticklers for birthing by 40 weeks, but that's not too much longer to wait and see. Good luck!

we'll still be incubating , while you guys are birthing~
my lil guy is only 36 wks
We're trying for an 8 pounder this time..after that labor scare at 30wks (and my midwife blamed the moon, cuz she had 2 births that day as well!)..he can just stay put and grow.

Chloe was born when all the planets were aligned though..so I do belive in moon phases and such..just don't know enough about it

~mama to some wonderful kids

So many of us are due on this weekend, as to my prediction, and the fact that the moon is full.I want everyone to incubate fully!! Maybe a lot of you will have your babies (who aren't due soon) on the next new moon.

It should be interesting.
