I am!! Actually I've been having decent contrax since like yesterday afternoon, but my body is notorious for taking for-EVER w/early labor.

I had a great Halloween last night, spent with kids and friends and even got to participate in a ritual for a change Got NO sleep tho--contrax

Here's some labor dust for everyone who's READY to GO today/tomorrow!

I'm definitely hoping for labor tonight!!! The house is clean(er), supplies are here, maternity pics have been done (yesterday @39.4 wks ), so all is done! I'm going for a looooooong walk tonight!

Here are some articles I found re full moon/labor:

http://www.journals.elsevierhealth.c...01607/abstract

http://www.birthsource.com/scripts/a...?articleid=409

http://ezinearticles.com/?The-Moons-...birth&id=70253

According to the first one, it has more to do with unstable barometric pressure. Off to search about that...

I don't know we seem to be currently fighting off a cold and although I am ready to meet this one I don't know if it is the best idea right now. Good thing it is not up to me- I am way too indecisive- if the baby is ready then we are ready, if not I guess we'll be waiting a bit longer!

I can use all the help I can get! Intense (had to breathe through them) ctx for about 45min on thur night (actually wee hours of friday). Lost my plug then, and my cervix started coming down a little...then NOTHIN (not even normal braxton hicks) on friday or saturday. I really didnt' want a halloween baby, so I think my mind held it off...BHs came back yesterday, but my cervix is back up and I'm just feeling at everybody. I've got all those other labor symptoms--no appetite, distracted, I've cleaned my house over and over, annoyed with the world... I would for the moon to help me out and get this kiddo here. I techincally have 8/9 days till EDD, but the last kiddo came a week early so I'm allowed to hope for this week at least, right?!

I was due on Halloween. I am going to be pregnant forever. I double dare the full moon send me into labor.

(I'm just trying a little reverse psychology on the universe...since nothing else seems to be working.)

Nooo -- The hospital might be full and I wouldn't get as much attention...or even have to share a room! Now that I say that, of course, luck will find me in the hospital.

Thanks for the links they where interesting. My midwife says she tends to get more around the full and even more so during a new moon. I went back and checked my children's previous birth dates. My son was born on a full moon, my twins where born a few days before but they where induced. I can't wait to see if we get any full moon babies.

doesn't look like it worked for me, heh.

I have a miserable cold and i just can't seem to get over it. I've apparently lost my plug (or am still losing it), still having tons of contrax, labor signs etc, and even almost called DH home from work on Halloween night cause it sure felt like labor.
But nope. I HATE this last bit of pregnancy.

Getting my membranes stripped tomorrow, and stressing a bit. We pushed my EDD as far forward as was logical due to legal reasons, so I'm not "on paper due" til 11/5--but really, it's 100% likely i'm already due or overdue. I know it'd be easier to have a doctor overseeing things now IF i have to end up going to the hossy--but emotionally, I can't address that yet. Of course, getting an appt will take time, etc, and i'll have to have NSTs done if I get to 41w (Nov 12)....i cannot cope with having another crazy-late baby!!

My body is giving the kind of signs that REAL labor could start in, oh, about 10 minutes. But I was here for weeks--WEEKS--last time.

full moon didn't work for me either. just more false/prodromal/latent whatever you want to call it labor. Bummer.

I squatted, took my stairs two at a time, seduced my husband, took 4 EPO capsules, AND drank a super strong tincture of RRL tea, and all I got to show for the full moon were a few BH that woke me up a couple times in the night. Sheesh. All that hard work for nuthin'.

I was walking the dog last night and noticed the full moon, and had the same thought as everyone of how many full moon babies we'd get.

Then I got curious about the new moon - Nov's will fall on the 16th ... 3 days before my EDD! I'm curious now to see how many new moon babies we'll get for comparison's sake (and keeping my fingers crossed for one myself!).
