Okay, well here's crossed fingers. More babies are supposedly born on the full moon than any other time of the month, in particular little boys (some say girls are more often born during the new moon). I'm hoping they're right!!

Test was inconclusive for a slow leak; still no contractions, and just waiting for either a more evidence of a slow leak or a gusher.

I'm in a one hour testing phase to see if my water just broke. Here's hoping :)

well ladies best of luck...full moon in 14 hours so for those of us hoping signs of labor should have already started or be starting soon (MINE HAS NOT!! :-P) or you will be extra blessed and have a really short labor!

OH goodness! I'm due the 9th as well...and I hope he comes Sunday as my husband was born on Mother's Day and his b-day this year is May 11th. My dad and I were both born on Good Friday, and his bday was the day after mine. I think it'd be cool to repeat that pattern. But I don't want to be crowded at the hospital, either! Of course, a weekend will have fewer inductions and scheduled c/s, so maybe it won't be too bad...

I didnt even realize (my due date ) May 9th was a full moon... also for all us preggo mommies who are virgos... mercury is in retrograde on May 7th... so that means even more chaos for us...LOL..

My due date is Saturday and I'm pretty certain that Junior is going to arrive then. I walked a 5k last Saturday and lost my mucus plug afterward. I can only hope that walking the dog every morning is continuing the process. I've got an acupuncture appointment on Thursday to help with the labor preparation. The only down sides are that my midwife was on call last Saturday so will not be available this Saturday :( and with a potential full L&D, we are less likely to get into the birth suite with the whirlpool for a water birth.

Im having a girl but im hoping that she will come on the 9th this is my first and would be a really nice mothers day present. Iam as well gonna go crazy if i have another false labor.

I know! That's my due date, but I'm hoping to go a few days before or after because my doctor isn't on call this weekend. My mom is the unit manager of the birth center at our hospital back home and she said they do have a ton more babies on full moon nights.

My son was born on a full moon and the hospital was packed! They didn't even have any postpartum rooms available until the next day. So, good luck to you guys that are due soon!!
