If you're close to delivery a big storm with a dramatic drop in pressure can start labor - it worked for me last time! I went into labor after a HUGE thunderstorm with tornado warnings (the sirens went off and everything - we're in Kansas), just the day before my midwife told me that she didn't see any correlation with labor and the full moon, but anytime there was a big storm L&D was full - and it was that night!
I seriously doubt you have anything to worry about at 7-8 months pregnant, though. (When the storm put me into labor I was 38 weeks, dialated to 6cm already, and at least 80% effaced.)
