Is the full moon tonight/tomorrow morning or tomorrow night-through Thursday? Not that it matters...but I'm really really hoping that I'll be in labor soon!!!

found this about the full moon - more babies born connection:


Though the survey is limited, a look at the past five months of births at St. Luke's Hospital seems to bear out Debbie Raposo's sense of things.
Over the course of a year, the hospital averages four births a day. But look at the daily average for the three days surrounding full moons from last September through earlier this month:
September 5-7: 8 births per day
October 4-6: 5 per day
November 3-5: 5.6 per day
December 2-4: 7.3 per day
January 1-3: 6.3 per day
That's 60 percent more births per day during the full moon compared to an average day.


SO THERE it is true darn scientists trying to pretend its not !

living in the with DH, DS (5-30-07) and DD (9-26-09) don't forget the dogs, cat, fish, toads and geckos.....

(ETA: Said will all due respect to the mamas of multiples - who really DO have massive amounts of babies in them... ) I might break records for the largest baby ever, too!
If that was an u/s measurement, don't get bent out of shape. With DD, they estimated her to be 10 lbs at 38 weeks 0 days (and told me she would gain 1/2 lb per week from then on out), which convinced me to go in for an induction at 38 weeks 4 days. She was born 1 day shy of 39 weeks at 9 lbs 2 oz. They were pretty far off, IMHO.

I don't think anything will happen with this full moon for me. But the next one (June 1st) will fall at 41 weeks for me, so we'll see!

Oh I don't believe the u/s weight... I was being tongue in cheek (or at least trying to come across that way... sometimes hard in writing). But thank you for the warning!

I searched for full moon and labor and found mixed results regarding whether there is a measurable association. There seems to be a stronger association with sudden changes in weather (low barometric pressure). So look for big storms coming through to trigger labor, too!

This is why anyone due in Florida from June thru October should know how to homebirth even if it isn't their plan.
My dog Lucy labored and birthed as Hurricane Charlie made landfall. It was cool.

June lurker, but I went into labor on a full moon with my first and the day after a full moon with my second...perhaps I should be preparing for a June 1st baby this time around?!?

Sorry about that! It can be difficult to convey tone online....

There's rain here today so maybe women in my area will go into labor? Not me though... which is fine. I have to make it to Friday anyway before I can use the birth center.

just found out DH AND his younger brother were BOTH born on full moons.

but wait......

DH was one of 21 baby boys born THAT NIGHT at a small hospital.....

his brother was the ONLY baby born on his night.

so they cancel each other out!?

living in the with DH, DS (5-30-07) and DD (9-26-09) don't forget the dogs, cat, fish, toads and geckos.....
