  • that is a falicy but what is true is hurricanes causing labor because of the barometric pressure. At 40 weeks you are going to pop at any second regardless of the phase of the moon.

  • I went two weeks early because of a full moon and my cousin had her baby on the same day. My grandmother told us it would happen and it did. Two babies on the same night (full moon). He was 8lbs.
