  • I pretty good chance if it's around your due date. No one can guess when they will have their baby exactly, even when the Dr. gives us a due date. The baby will come when the baby is ready. It could be 10 days early or 10 days late on the normal side. Otherwise, only time will tell.

  • You could go into labor at any time. The 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after your due date are prime baby time. The moon has absolutely zero to do with it.

  • It is very likely because full moons can bring on labor but don't count on it you have to be fairly close to delivery for it to throw you over, but it is more likely than other days
