I had contractions all night but (of course) they didn't progress into anything.
I'm so dissapointed.

I was hoping that it would work for my SIL who was due on June 2nd, but no luck there either. I was really uncomfortable most of the night but it was more digestive than baby related I think.

I thought for sure it was going to work for me! The 6th I had contractions all day along with persistent back pain...but everything stopped when I went to sleep. So far during the day since then I have contractions, though non-painful, all the time... but that is about it. I've got all the signs that my body is prepping to go into labor but I realize it could still be days or weeks...

The weather even got quite bad here - I really thought all the elements were in place - full moon, drop in barometric pressure, 2 days away from 40 weeks. Argh. I think there is a 5-day window with the full moon so there is still hope but....this is all good "patience" practice...

Lots of contractions and lots of mucus(TMI, sorry) but no baby yet. The contractions even got to be about 3 minutes apart. So that was a real tease.

Nope, nothing for me-and the 7th was even my due date! We ate Mexican food and had some pineapple, too, what more does this kid need?! (joking, of course) I contemplated dancing naked under the full moon to see if that would entice her out, but then I thought of getting bug bites in certain places that would be very uncomfortable and changed my mind.

I don't know if it was the full moon or what, but I had my baby that night!
