What do you ladies think? Full moon & going into labor?


There is a full moon Thursday and I have heard from many people and many people swear by it that a full moon will put you into labor. Who believes it?

I am already dilated and effaced & have lost my plug, not to mention have constant day long weak cramps lol, so I am praying something will happen, lol.

So what do you all think/believe?

I don't really believe it. What I do believe is that because of the myth a lot of women do things like walks or more ball jumping or sex so more women go into the ward plus the women who would have gone into it on that night anyways

I could deal with that I think. If I make it past Friday I'll out do all 3 of my moms pregnancies, she never made it past 38 weeks. I'm still happy pregnant and am ok with going longer, but 2 of my friends have had babies in the past week and I can't wait to meet her now!

I voted yes btw, but I think as with a lot of things, it depends on what you believe in. I've always felt a connection to anything in the sky, especially the northern lights (aurora borealis) and the moon.
My baby's nickname throughout this pregnancy has been "Zree", which is the Gwitchin (northern native peoples) word for moon. She was conceived just following the blue moon last January.
So I guess it'd be kinda fitting for her to come soon after a full moon.

Heres a shot I got of the full (blue) moon last new years.

I know from experience that my hospital was so busy when I gave birth close to a full moon last time. It was just from the sheer volume of the spontaneous rupture of membranes of those near their due date...including myself! This as the first sign of labour is not very common in itself, so I do think that there is some weight to it.

I was in hospital for quite a long time with my third as my waters went at 28 weeks. There was a MASSIVE increase of ladies when there was a full moon, so much so the antenatal ward was full, triage, labour ward, MLU and the postnatal ward too, so they used the room that was a mock up ward for medical students as an extra bay (for three or four women and babies) and then they closed the unit to new patients. This happened twice whilst I was there both a full moon, guess it could be coincidence.

Definately a connection. There have been many amature studies done on it, mainly women interested in natural birth and induction etc. If the moon can have a major impact on such a large body of water (the ocean) then why not on a small sack of water in a womans body?

I thought it was a whole load of rubbish until I decided to google it and read up on some studies. Now I think there is a slight connection and I'm quite excited about thursday lol.. Although I don't want to arrive to a full labour ward with no spare rooms! xx
