When our oldest niece was born, there was a sudden onslaught of mothers who came in to deliver their babies that same night. I remember the nurses expressing a mixture of humor and angst as the number of mothers delivering babies increased.
One of them quipped, “I knew it! It’s because there’s a full moon!” Sure enough, there was a full moon that night.
Out of curiosity, twelve years after this phenomenon took place the night our niece was born, I looked to see when the full moon closest to our due date is.
Yeah, it’s on his actual due date, May 25, 2013 at 6:00 in the morning. Wonder if he’ll be born on that date since that’s when he’s due AND it’s the full moon? Wanna place bets?
