Oh My...
Well, some of you may have read and kindly commented on my lacy baby jacket that I finished off the other day.

Yesterday I gave it to my sister... (to try on the bump...)

D'oh.

This morning - she's gone into labour! And, yes, she's blaming me!



Early!!! She's about a week early from her due date, as it's baby number 2 I guess that's not really surprising...

But what is surprising is that my sis does something - early?!!!! Lol!

I hope everything will be just fine! Maybe you can help women that are way over due date?

That's so funny that she went into labor when you told her she could now that it was finished!

Hope all goes well!

Thanks everyone, Well the update is that she's spent the entire day in "relaxed" labour. I use the term "relaxed" tentatively to all those of you out there who have been through labour!

Just had a call that she's gone back into hospital, and so fingers are all crossed.

Having spoken to her, she's not sure whether to blame...

1) Me for said baby jacket...
2) Her hubby for announcing to a roomfull of people that they "never do anything early"
or 3) the Dr Pepper she drank last night... (the non-diet variety!)

The poor child was probaby high on sugar and caffeine after she drank that!

Lol... Anyone remember the Dr Pepper ad's "What's the worst that could happen?"
