Two full moons in August!!

Don't know if anyone is superstitious but there will be TWO full moons during the month of August! August 2 and August 31 will have full moons for anyone looking to birth under a big beautiful moon Biggrin

That's where the term "blue moon" comes from - the second full moon in a month...

Wonder who will be born on a Blue Moon?

I'm due the 3rd, so delivering the 2nd is a total possibility, but I'd really like to go before then! lol And no way would I hold out until the 31st!!!

I definitely won't make it until the 31st. My c-section is schedule for the 21st. DS was born under the full moon of the wolf. I went to work that day and told everyone I would go into labor.. I don't know how but I just knew.

I'm most likely out of contention to deliver on a full moon... seeing as how I'm due smack dab in the middle of the month!

I'm curious... What's the superstition? If I go overdue, it's totally possible for me to delivery on August 31!

The superstition is just that full moons put women in labor... Smile Something about the special gravitational pull... supposedly hospitals are full of laboring moms on full moon nights...

Well I am due the 5th, so I guess that puts me in the running for the 2nd!

I sure hope I don't have any chance of hitting the 31st full moon as that is 9 days past my due date. I could always go into labour on the 2nd, which is 1 day after I hit 37 weeks...so I would be okay with that.
