in looking at some posts I see lots of us are 39.5 weeks or so.
So this weekend (and its full moon) should bring some babies!

how many of us are due this weekend?

I'm due Saturday, 10/3.

Me, on Saturday! If he doesn't come before then (I keep going into labor and stopping) I'm hoping the full moon does it!

I am not due this weekend either (I'll be 40 weeks on Tuesday), but it will be interesting to see how many babies come then!

I want to make it into October too, which should be pretty easy because that's tomorrow. I've met all of my mini "goals" so far, MIL getting back from Ireland, moving into Libra, getting through all of DDs' back to school stuff and now, it's almost October. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like my dad will be able to make anytime within the next couple of weeks, so as soon as I get the kitchen floor washed, this LO has my permission to come anytime now (well, starting tomorrow). I'm SURE she's been in in there, just waiting for me to give her the OK!

I'm not due this weekend. BUT if our new baby is like our first, I'll be having him or her by Sunday! I doubt it though! haha

I do sort of hope for Saturday - that would be kind of cool. If we have a girl, we are planning on giving her my MIL's name as her middle name (not really naming her after my MIL - we just love the name!) - plus, it's my MIL's birthday on Saturday! So that would be kinda neat! Not counting on it though!

Same here! I wanted her to enter Libra. Done! And now, I want her to be born into October. So in about 14 hours...I think another mental block will be removed and hopefully my body just allows it to happen. Hey which night is the full moon? How cool would it be to have an October baby on a full moon! Love it!

I have two due dates: 9/28 was my due date according to my cycle. 10/4 is my due date according to ultrasound. So I'm either 40+2 or 39+3. My dh's birthday is the 4th and that's what he's been rooting for this whole time. So I'm guessing I'll go after midnight on the 4th in honor of the Harvest Moon and to make my hubby happy!

BTW - the Harvest Moon is the night of the 3rd-4th.

Best wishes to all of us for beautiful, safe, healthy births!

Full moon is Saturday the third according to my tide calendar, but techinically the moon isn't all the way full until 6:11 AM on Sunday the fourth. I'm due the second. We will see if the extra gravitational pull does anything to assist this baby's entrance into the world. Today is my birthday, so I sort of hope she doesn't come today. If she does I suppose that is when she is meant to arrive.

I'm due Friday and highly doubt I'm gonna make it. Think it might be today...so if you guys don't hear from me....well...you will in a couple days.

Contractions are between 5 and 7 mins apart and I'm having to moan through them...


YAY!

Happy B'day Firewoman, and
Happy Laboring Trinity's Mom!! How exciting! Good luck!

I see the moon full at 6:10AM on 10/4, but that's universal time (GMT), so here in PST, it would be 11:10PM on 10/3. (7 hours earlier - if I did my math right).

I'm a week behind you guys, but have never gone past 39 weeks with my other kids. That would be this Friday for me. I feel like this kiddo is going to change all of that though, and may just have plans of his own to arrive later than the other three. I probably jinxed it by telling people I thought he was coming sooner! Here's hoping the full moon has an effect on this little guy's arrival!

Well, I guess MIL has to drive to Chicago on Sunday (Chicago is about 3 hours from us, and she lives about halfway), so with MY luck, this LO will come on Sunday.

I'm not due till Monday or Tuesday, but I have a feeling LO will be arriving this weekend! I sure hope so, anyway. I've been having contractions on and off for the past few days, but they haven't amounted to anything yet. I'm hoping that's because I've wanted baby to wait till after tonight when my mom arrives, and then once she gets here, *boom!* right into labor! We'll see...
