When my eldest was born the OB mentioned that there was an uptick in births ( of women who were otherwise ready)at the full moon and if there was a high pressure system. I never checked it out to see if there was scientific or statistical validity, but it sounded plausible. There was a short piece on one of teh website that this month's moon was the 2nd closest it would be to earth so I made the connection.

Now that I am reading this I remember when I sent to the hospital to have my baby (many years ago), the nurses said "Oh no not another one!". They were running out of rooms.

Hmmmm, I'm going to look online to see if there was a full moon that day.

Now you made me look. I remember the high pressure system because it was very cool with brilliant cloudless blue skies, but the moon was 3/4 full and waxing when I went into to labor and 86% full when she was born.( she took her time about things)

SIL and Fiance are still here. It's been 9 days. I'm working from home and watching "The People VS. Larry Flint" on full blast in hopes that they'll go away.

Well, this turned into a short workday. MIL called around 10ish to say camp called because Nunu was complaining of a headache then camp called me because Lulu was complaining of a headache (and she was cold but saying she felt hot) AND the MIL is sick too.

We were at an art fair all day yesterday and had a really full Saturday too and I think they may be dehydrated. So I'm going to stop talking to you guys and start googling what I can do to help my babies, other than the obvious. Thank goodness we put in the AC yesterday...

Very cute. I'd go crazy watching over all those little guys until they got adopted, though.

Adopted? I would move to the country and raise my pack of adorableness.
