    Hi Lianne,

    Oh, it's awful isn't it?! When you're pregnant and get a craving you REALLY have to have it! And until you get it you can't think of anything else! I remember when I was pregnant I had a craving for Victoria Plums, and spent about a month eating as many as I could! They're not even my favourite fruit. But the upshot of that is everyone called my daughter Plum Pudding when she was a baby, and even now I sometimes write it in her birthday cards. So you never know, once your baby's born all the visitors may say "Where's our little Kadayfi?"

    So is this your first baby? I bet you're ever so excited and can't wait until he or she arrives. Do you know whether you're having a boy or girl - or are you keeping it as a surprise?

    Anyway, I hope you manage to get your Kadayfi fix!

    I'm not a fan of those traditional, teeth-achingly sweet, syrupy Turkish deserts myself but my husband loves the one you're referring to and occasionally has it. It always reminds me of Shredded Wheat so I wonder if you could maybe improvise with some home-made sugar syrup, Shredded Wheat and some crushed pistachio nuts? If you left it to soak for long enough you might achieve the desired effect.

    Might be worth a try if you're desperate lol!!

    I never experienced cravings during pregnancy myself but I know a lot of women do, and they simply have to be satisfied!

    Thanks for the link Deniz, I might try ordering something from that website or else I will just have to get my husband to post me some Kadayfi!
    Strawbs I haven't really craved anything specific however in my second trimester I was craving dry cement and cigarette ash Smile I had anemia and apparently that is one of the symptoms. Don't worry I didn't give in Smile

    Im having a girl and am so excited. Just can't decide on a name, perhaps you can help?

    I am thinking of either Rosie or Olivia....any other ideas? Ella is quite popular amongst English women/Turkish men at the moment so I want to stay clear of that.

    ps Gunglover I love the idea of improvising with Shredded Wheat! I'll just mix it in a bowl with lot's of syrup, add a dollop of cream and hope for the best Wink

    Aww Tracy that's a lovely name! Lilly Rose...she looks like a little flower to. I really liked Lily but I can't keep it due to my cousin's husband's nickname being Lily. He is a HUGE guy, really mean and rude and quite known in the family. Nasty man. Anyway because of this idiot the name Lily reminds people of him and my mum won't allow it! Smile

    Little Lily Rose looks adorable in her pics. I love the headbands, I have always thought they help make girls with less hair prettier. I'll definitely be using them x

    Hi Lianne,

    Wow! Dry cement and cigarette ash?! Sounds delicious! I've heard of that, though - pregnant women craving all strange sorts of things - coal and soil spring to mind! Have you also become super-sensitive to smells? I remember when I was pregnant a smell of a certain aftershave used to make me feel sick - and I've hated it ever since - even though I loved it before.

    There's so many lovely names for a girl, it's hard to choose, really, but these are some of the names I think are really lovely:

    Sophia
    Isabella
    Luisa
    Maddelina
    Ava
    Scarlett
    Francesca
    Alicia
    Lydia
    Heidi
    Annabel
    Lila


    I also think the name Rose is really pretty as a second name; such as Sophia Rose, Ava Rose.....I think they go lovely together.

    Oh, you must be so excited! And it's lovely being pregnant isn't it? You feel all glowing inside......it's wonderful. And everyone treats you like china!

    By the way, I hope you don't fancy the name Gunlover!

    Hi Lianne

    The best dessert I have ever had in my whole life is a Turkish one, its got cheese inside a sort of shredded wheat base and it is dripping in a syrup, cannot think what it is called, but you can get it at all the traditional Turkish restaurants. I have a Turkish sim and put the name of the dessert onto my contact list so I can remember what its called when in Turkey and I feel the need to indulge, but dont have the sim here to find out what its called. I think its something like kulufie, I know it reminded me of the word coffee. Anyway, its my absolute favourite dessert and a good job I can only scoff it in Turkey otherwise I would be the size of a house.

    Hope you get good news soon about your husband's settlement visa, did you manage to email? I am keeping my fingers crossed for you, it must be a very stressful time for you worrying about the visa and being pregnant. Let us know when you get the good news. Take care of yourself and your little one.

    Ruby

    Hi Sharryparry

    Thanks for pointing that out, I should have realised duh, ive got one of those heads on tonight.

    Well I hope Lianne manages to conjure up that dessert. I absolutely love it too. A friend of mine recommended it after we had eaten a main meal at a traditional Turkish restaurant, I asked him to describe it and I thought that sounds vile, anyway he persuaded me to try it and we started off by sharing the dessert, as soon as I took a mouthfull I was hooked, he didnt get a look in, in fact, I made him order his own!!

    Cannot wait for my next fix. I did see some in Tansas in the frozen section, but dont know how they compare.

    Yes I know the dessert you mention, it is just gorgeous isn't it? When I was living in Istanbul I did indulge quite a bit but I was also very active. Our apartment was at the bottom of a hill and on the third floor...no lift Smile So I managed to keep the weight from creeping up. That is until pregnancy Smile But to be honest I am liking this fuller look as I have always been so slim it is a nice change to have boobs Wink

    Still waiting for visa and baby. I really do hope we hear something before Friday when all the holidays begin...so annoying.

    Smile Ruby, the same thing happened to me with Kumpir. It looked vile, but when I ate some I was hooked and made my husband order another. My first 'experience' with Kadayfi...husband ordered some and I opted for the safer choice of cheescake but after a bite of his I made his swap with me Smile.

    Cravings went out the window as I was getting contractions! It was just a false alarm however, body trying to get me ready for the real thing...:S

    Husband got his visa today Smile I am beyond happy. Hopefully baby stays put until he arrives. Thanks for all your well wishes and words of support girls!
