Saw this in March DDC.   March 19 is a SUPERMOON!!  Full moon close to earth.  I know full moons can affect labor.  wonder if this will affect any early April Mama's???

anyone have any thoughts on it???

 

guess it would be okay if I went then.  I'll be 37 weeks 4/18.  But I still really want to wait til April!

The article says the full moons in February, March, and April are all "Supermoons." I've been expecting to go around the April 16th full moon since I got my BFP. DS was born around a full moon 10 days after his due date.

I ovulated near the new moon with dd and had her on the new moon...i ovulated on the last quarter this time and the last quarter moon in april is the 25 which ironically is the date I feel like I elk go from the beginning...so we shall see. I know my midwife had 5 women go into labor the few days around the full moon in feb, as well as another mw friend of mine, so I bet we will see a lot of births soon!

good idea to check the calendar! 

 

DD#1 was born on the 4th the full moon was the 2nd.  She was 39w4d

DD#2 was born on the 14 and the full moon that month was on the 15.  She was born at 41w3d

 

So for the first 2 my births really did occur around the full moon.  That would mean this one would be born either next weekend or not until April 18.  Since dd#2 was 10 days late, and april 18 would be 10 days late my guess is 4/18.   not that I'm going to make any set plans by that but it will be interesting to see what happens.

Oh, I would love to have this baby this month!

DD1 was induced, so I don't know when she would have decided to come on her own, but my labor with DD2 started the night before a full moon, and she was born on the day of the full moon. But she was 10 days "late", so I think it's more likely that this guy would be born around the full moon 2 weeks after my EDD, in April.

yep....thats what I'm thinking, too.  If I'm having a baby near a full moon I'm betting its the April full moon.  hopefully the full moon thing isn't a pattern for me because this weekend seems way too soon (although technically will be full term) and April 18 seems SOOOO long.  I can't imagine being pregnant for another 5 weeks!!  But the April full moon would put me exactly where I was with dd2!

DS1 was born on 3/13 - didn't realize it was 2 days past full moon - totally within the full moon period of +/- 3 days there.  According to Dr's EDD he was 10 days early, according to my EDD only 2 days early.  This one has dropped already, have lots of strong contractions etc...he just needs to not come this weekend!  Needs to wait until 37 weeks so I can deliver @ home.  I am curious though if it will be sooner rather than later as my babes like to come early. hmmm
