Dh just said that. He's glad he's at work.

Interesting test for pre eclampsia

The whole thing is trying a bit too hard...why are the midwives all so posh?? Hope it gets better.

bigeyes Sun 15-Jan-12 20:35:25

I've sloped off to bed to watch this n sherlock in comfy peace (I'm 35 weeks) I have matchmakers and soft nougat (m&s no less)

<smug> uniform out and packed lunch done

Moln Sun 15-Jan-12 20:36:33

you get the feeling no 25 isn't going to go too well?

Sparklingbrook Sun 15-Jan-12 20:37:34

It's like a vv grim OBEM from the olden days. sad

bigeyes Sun 15-Jan-12 20:37:46

Clawdy, maybe because only the 'posher' classes had access to education and training back then to become skilled workers??? Just a guess

HarrietJones Sun 15-Jan-12 20:40:16

I was just about to suggest that

bigeyes Sun 15-Jan-12 20:40:44

Oh no no25 isn't, a thread on pg board said old fashioned advice about not raising arms re pegging washing out had some truth in it re blood pressure I think, dizziness. Hmm did she trip though

ZuzuBailey Sun 15-Jan-12 20:41:22

Yes, the not so posh would be having all the babies!

Molehillmountain Sun 15-Jan-12 20:41:47

Oh bother! Meant to watch this-which channel is it on?

Moln Sun 15-Jan-12 20:41:58

where loads of the miswives irish? Or was that later than 1957?

My MIL was a miswife in london 1960 and from what she says tons of them were

GwendolineMaryLacey Sun 15-Jan-12 20:41:58

I'm trying to watch it but can't concentrate. Was looking forward to it as I've now successfully given DD2 her marching orders but I'm still a bit distracted and hyper. Will have to see it on iPlayer.

shesparkles Sun 15-Jan-12 20:42:58

In t'olden days you had to pay to train as a nurse, hence the "posher" voices.
It's shaping up well grin

Clawdy Sun 15-Jan-12 20:44:25

I see your point,bigeyes,but they are not just posh,they're almost Downton!

Moln Sun 15-Jan-12 20:44:59

mind you my mil is irish herself so maybe it's just her friend she went over with that she talks about lol
