"NEWBIE!! Come look at this. This new ultrasound can let you see 3D images of your baby while it's still in the womb?" I shouted from the living room. Newbie was upstairs getting ready for work and I'm pretty sure he didn't hear me.
"Oh yes. Look, they have these new ultrasounds that allows you to see 3D images of your baby in the womb. It's that crazy!"
"I guess, technology is really improving now-a-days. I wouldn't be surprised if in 10 years you can see a hologram of your baby."
"Oh Dawn, that's not my department. I'm a brain surgeon not a baby doctor. Besides finding out our baby's gender is worth the 2 hour wait."
"Yeah I guess."
"Bye, Honey. See you tonight. Love you."
"Bye, Love you too, Newbie."
"Awe. You guys need a bath."
"There, there, you feel all better now?"
I blow dried the cats, let go and do whatever they please while I cleaned what mess I made in the bathroom. As I was drying the floor of water with the towel I heard the house phone ringing. Knowing it was most likely the doctor I quickly got up and rushed out of the bathroom, saving the rest of the drying till after the call.
"Hello, is Mrs. Starr there?"
"Yes, this is she."
"Hi, I'm Dr. Cotton and I have the results to your ultrasound. Would you like to know the gender of your baby?"
"YES, yes, please."
"Congrats Mrs. Starr, your having a baby girl."
**4 months Later**
8 months pregnant
The last 4 months I took up painting again, something I haven't done since I was halfway done with my challenge. It's something that I enjoy and it relaxes me, plus it gives me something to do while Newbie is off at work.
The last week Newbie has been secretive about something. I've seen him enter and exit out of one of the spare rooms constantly. More then 5 times this last week I seen several of his friends enter the room as well and exit with sweat stain shirts and paint on their faces. I never bothered to question, thinking that him and his friends were doing some kind of project that they don't want me to know about. So I left it as it is and continued my painting.
"Newbie why are you sweating? It's fall," I asked walking the rest of the towards him.
"You'll see, no, close your eyes." Newbie walked behind me and clasped him hands over my eyes and leads me through the door and into the room.
"Newbie what are y-"
"Okay open," he said, releasing his hands and letting me see the room.
I walked into a room of pink and brown. It was the most lovely nursery I have ever seen and everything matched so well. The cribbed looked so adorable and the room was filled with endless toys. It was like taking a step into one of those home decor magazines.
"Oh Newbie, it's, it's beautiful. How? Why? How'd you do all this?"
I laughed, I could definitely see Ashby doing something like that. "Why all this trouble? I mean I would have been happy with just a crib and a few toys."
"Oh, Newbie that's so sweet."
"Now watch you have another boy."
"A minute ago. It's a cute room but what if you have another boy?"
"Then he'll be the pinkest boy at the playground," Newbie responded.
We all laugh.
Both got wide eyed and ran to my aid. Addy called the ambulance and Newbie helped me downstairs to wait outside.
"You doing fine Dawn, just breath and push."
The delivery of the baby lasted only 10 minutes, but with all the pain I was experiencing it felt like hours. Thankfully I had my husband there to couch me through the delivery.
I snuggled our baby and she looked up at me with a smile.
"You got a name for her?" Newbie asked, still smiling down at his daughter.
"Yes, how about Laura-Jayne and her middle name can be Ashby, after your mom?"
"Laura-Jayne Ashby Starr. I love it."
IT'S A GIRL!!!
I hope all you enjoy chapter 10 of generation 1.
I'm so excited to welcome a new baby into the Starr home and I hope you all stay tuned for Chapter 11 that I hope to start as soon as possible.
As you can see that I added extra space in between each paragraph to make for an easy read. I wanted to know if you guys like the extra space or do you prefer it the way it was before?
Happy Simming and thanks for reading. :D
