Me too! Tonight my prodromal labors barely even noticeable!

Im actually feeling really good.

Sad though, I wanted to have her on the 24th. No way Im going into labor and giving birth in the next hour.

*sigh* The full moon seems to be ramping up my cramping/prodromal. I swear I can FEEL my cervix opening. But nothing "real" going on. Just irritating. I'm going to bed. Moon Fail.

Nothing here either.

Tomorrow is the one day through my whole pregnancy that I didn't want to deliver (it's my Dad, who I have completely cut out of my life for various reasons, and my ex's birthday).

I'm also going to be 2 hours away from home.

Sounds like a good day to stay put right baby?

Maybe it's good that the moon did nothing for me

I've had 3 contrax in the past hour but that's meaningless. They're not painful and I'm not even 36 wks. Shrug.

I'm having lots of contractions tonight but that's no different than usual I'm 38 and 5 (or 6 if you go by LMP) days.

My midwife said she births more babies on the new moon.

I was a full moon baby, DH was a new moon baby, DD was born just after a full moon (DS was induced and doesn't count!)

New moon is Sept. 8th

really really hope I have her before then!

LOL, Kelly! Moon Fail! That is how I felt, too.

I wanted a birthday baby...didn't get one. So then how about a full moon baby? Nope, not that either.

You know what? I don't care at this point as long as it is before I jump off a bridge! Ha. And I am thinking that is what will happen if I am still pregnant for the next full moon (no way I'll make it to 9/23!) or HA! my next birthday...363 days from now!

My cousin told me her EDD with her 3rd baby was 9/1, just like me. That baby was born 9/22. I told her never to tell me a story like that again.

Baby, you can come at any moon phase you want...just make it snappy.

Mary, proud to be a mama to Andrew (9/14/10) and Caroline (7/27/13) and wife to Matt.

ROTFL. Why, why, WHY must people tell stories like this when you're already going out of your mind? It's pure sadism.

Well, here I am.... I guessed that 8/25 would be babies due date.... nothing happening. I thought the full moon would spur something, but seriously no contractions for days....

I guess the baby will come when he or she is ready.

It worked for my friend!!! She was due this coming Saturday. Her water broke last night at around 2 am. She had the baby about 2 hours ago.

Nothin' but lots of contractions for me. :/

Momtotwo that is great for your friend! I'm a little jealous, but hearing that the new moon works out so well for people and that being my due date, perhaps this little one will be one of the 4% born when they are "due."

Really though, as long as baby eventually makes his or her way out of my body, I am good.

lol midwife seemed surprised today that I DIDNT go into labor last night.

I have two midwives and only one was there, the other had been at a birth all night.

You don't know what solace this brings me! I sometimes feel like I'm the only one who has little to no prodromal labor going on right now. Thanks for making me feel like I"m not alone!!!

So, yeah, I will not be pregnant for the next full moon, uh uh, no way. Not gonna do it. Personal comfort level exceeded there. And I'd be crazy
