Labor starting on a full moon???

So anyone have any opinions on labor starting during full moon cycles?

My water broke with my daughter and she was born a day before a full moon when i was 36 weeks.

We have a full moon on the 19th... maybe baby boy will arrive soon??

There are not full blown studies showing any of this but hospitals do staff more on the maternity ward during full moons.  Some suggest that many women experience more braxton hicks making them think they are in labor and they go to the hospital only to come back home.

I have tried finding some more articles but cant find any scientific proof.  I have seen several polls and many women believe full moons have helped them go into labor.

So did you have your baby during a full moon?  Any other thoughts?  Myth or fact?
