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.

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 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.

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 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.

No, no, no, no, no! She can't come, I forbid her. She can't come any of the next three nights! I don't want her to have a crappy bday and I don't want to miss DD opening gifts xmas morning.

Is there a secret to making her stay in just three more days??? Well technically two and an hourish more days??

Im due Jan 24.. but Id rather wait until the beginning of Feb since the carpet was ordered yesterday and apparently it takes 3-5 weeks to install AGHH so we are stuck here while dh is in Jax until the carpet gets installed and I do NOT want to have this baby here.. I want to have this baby in Jacksonville with my hubby.. wahhh

Get outta my head, LOL. This is EXACTLY how I feel.

I will stand on my damn head and put silicone caulk in my cervix if I have to. I'm pushing fluids like mad (I am contracting all over the place....again...stupid irritable uterus of mine) and resting when I can.

Finch - i'm kicking myself for asking you to trade your labor pains in a previous thread, I think it was that next morning I lost my plug and I would have been great with her coming last week, I was really hoping she would!! Now I just gotta keep her in, just another 36 hours.... We need a constipated looking smilie.

I'm really worried, last night I started having major pains, I almost woke DH a 2 AM this morning to get around to leave, but decided I would try a shower first, they relaxed in pain enough that I could tolerate them again, and then spaced out about an hour and a half later. That was too close for comfort I ctx more at night as it is, so I'm really really worried what tonight will bring being the true full moon.

: Please, Please, Please, baby stay in there a little bit longer...... don't listen to that moon.....
