I read that more births happen on the day before, the day of and the day after a full moon than any other three days in a month.
Who knows though.

LOL, well, that would be neat, I'll admit.. and I hope that for you! I always hope for my water to break too... because that guarantees that you'll have the baby soon after. However, this is my fifth baby.. and my water has never broke, nor have I ever went into labor early. As a matter of fact I only went into labor once, and that was with my first, which was 3 days after my due date! the rest were planned C-sections and they all held out for that 39th week. It's fun to hope though... good luck

Nothing over here..we always have today though! I dont see anything happening but you never know! I drank two cups of red raspberry leaf tea yesterday, some people say it gave them contractions but it just gave me a headache, i know it is supposed to tone your uterus so it cant hurt!

I am only 34 week but I had some real contractions tuesday and wednesday night.. Today I also am having light period like cramps.. Only started on tuesday..

Not hoping for real action but perhaps it had to do with the moon??

Nothing over here either I guess that means baby is just not ready. I totally broke down in tears today. Not because I want her to be born today but because I am concerned that I will go all the way to my due date and be completely crazy by then. DH says to just resign myself to her coming on the 12th and if she happens to show up early then thats cool but not to expect it. SO easy to say but not easy to do. Really hoping for next week!!!

I'm convinced that I'll be 42 weeks before she shows up...

I bet if he turns me down for an elective induction and he wasnt going to have to medically interfere I would go a month over. Im convinced she never wants to come out..

Do you have some kind of alternate game plan if nothing happens by the 12th?

I ask not to stress you out; I just remember that with my first I was dying for her to come early, and I was devastated when she was still in there at 41w6d (seriously I would cry myself to sleep every night - I was huge and in sooo much pain). I held out though, because I really wanted her to come on her own. She was to be induced finally on 42w, but I went into labor that night.

It's wrenching to have your hopes up for a specific date and not have anything happen, so I just wanted to put in a word of caution to be as emotionally prepared as you can for ... other possibilities. Unless you're to be induced on your EDD, that is; in which case just ignore me.

Human evolution really seems to have done all it can to test the limits of those of us who reproduce. It's not fair, fun, or easy. Hang in there.
