Eclipse superstitions

Anyone else hearing about all the eclipse speculations for Monday 8/21/2017? I've heard it's dangerous for different reasons, but I've also heard pregnant women are more likely to go into labor this day or around this time. Thoughts? Do you think it only affects mother's close to their due dates? If you do, why? How close?

*Just for fun, please nobody be rude!*

I have heard there is going to be an eclipse, but haven't ever heard anything about it effecting pregnant women. Will have to look to see if I can find anything.

I heard not to hold anything metal that it can give babies defects but I've never believed in it
