Full moon pressure.. >:(

This happened to me last month the days leading up to the full moon as well.

All day long I've had constant contractions. They take my breath away, they make my body temp go up, my face starts feeling hot and fuzzy. I lose a bit of plug every few hours, I've lost globs and globs all weekend.

But.. it's just prodromal labor. It's driving me INSANE. The pressure is frustrating. 36 weeks tomorrow.. so I know I'm almost there. I can feel it!

Ya I've had a ton of contractions today. Still haven't seen the infamous plug yet though. And she's still head down, thank goodness!!! I highly doubt I'll pop before my due date though. 37 1/2 weeks preggo! :-)

I am feeling it too, and I think I may be leaking.  We are supposed to get a hurricane force winter storm with the full moon so I am hopeful.  Good thing I am having baby at home, we are supposed to get a blizzard

That is so crazy that it does that to you! I was wondering last night when I saw how big the moon was, if anyone would be going into labor. Hope you feel better or pop soon!

I'm really starting to wonder! I predict quite a few birth announcements throughout the week.

There were almost no births with the full moon in September. Such a strange phenomenon. I don't even know who is due soon. I've been so much less involved lately.
