    I think babies would be telling us how warm and snuggie it is in their little world inside mommy! Theyd tell us how much they hear, how sweet our voices are, hom much they feel.


  2. Just stopping by from another blog, and thought I'd check your site out. It looks nifty. And I really enjoyed reading it :)

    Thanks for having me and I hope to see you stop by my site. :)

  3. My first thought was they would wonder what the heck was going on! Thanks for the chance, justicecw@hotmail.com

  4. I think if my little one could speak from inside the womb, she'd be demanding more drums! She goes wild for drumbeats, I guess she can hear the rhythm and it makes her want to join in!

  5. I think they would say, "Don't stop moving! I like the motion." My babies seemed to kick this message in Morse whenever I stopped or slowed down. Thanks! goodwitchglinda at gmail dot com

    I first read this as "if Barbies could talk..." so, instead of saying "Where's Ken?", I will write, "I want out!"


  7. I'm sure they'd tell us how cramped they are!!! and what they feel like eating haha ;o)

  8. I think they are saying hi.

    I think they'd be telling us how comfortable it is inside and they'd respond to the outside stimulus as well. I think they'd try to convey emotions.

    What a neat book this would be for a friend's daughter!

    I think my twins were probably saying "Move over sister!" to each other!


  11. I think my son would have been telling me to give him more room! He was always pressed up against my outter belly like he needed more room in there!

  12. They would probably tell you that they want to know what we look like too!


  13. They'd probably be saying "Let me out of here!"

  14. I think they would say More Food, More Food.

  15. They would probably have told me what they wanted to eat LOL
