another meme

WHO DO YOU WISH YOU COULD GO BACK AND TALK TO? There’s no-one I would want to talk to that I'd have to go back and talk to.

Time for a hot curry methinks to get baby moving...well, it worked for a friend of mine a few years back...half an hour after downing a pork vindaloo, she was having contractions! Good luck chick, looking forward to hearing the good news!

TimT said...

I think you should call the baby either Jonquil, Tanaquil, or Pritchard.

happyandblue2 said...

Great answers. I especially liked the full name answer, tee,hee..

Violet said...

Desiree: it might make me sick, 'cos I'm right off curries these days.

timt: they sound like names of medicines...

happyandblue2: thank you, I aim to please.

My sister-in-law had a 'sweep' to get things going. Funny the midwife couldn't tell an arse from a head - baby was breach and it took 3 midwives and finally a scan to work it out! I hope your little critter is facing the right way. Can't wait to meet him/her!

Can't you go and ask them to induce you? that's what we do here.

Ooh, thanks Violet, I've never been tagged before!

I was away this weekend and I was convinced I'd come back to find you'd given birth... You're only like a day overdue though, so that's nothing.
