Generation 1, Chapter 10: It's a Baby Girl!

 It's been months since the universe travel incident and my baby bump was already growing at a fast rate. I was surprised at first about finding out that I was pregnant since we planned to spend our first year of marriage just the two of us. Now I wouldn't change a thing. I missed being pregnant and I was quite excited about having another baby in the house again and Newbie is especially delighted about having a baby. Last time we had kids together was for my challenge, but then we were not married or in love and he only saw them on weekends.
 It's been awhile since I've been pregnant and I was afraid I might have forgotten everything about pregnancy, so I found myself watching these baby programs on tv. One particular show showed the new and improved technology they have now for pregnant women and babies.

"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.
 "Yes honey? You called 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."


 "Look I'm heading off to work now, you and the baby be safe okay. If you need anything I'm just a call away. You still waiting for the doctor's call?" Newbie says, walking over to the couch and placing his hand on my belly.
"Yes, the doctor should be calling sometime around 3 or 4. But why can't you find out the gender of our baby when you get to the hospital and give me a call. I don't wanna wait another 2 hours or so."

"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."
Newbie stand and helps me off the couch and gives me a goodbye kiss and hug before heading off to work.

"Bye, Honey. See you tonight. Love you."

"Bye, Love you too, Newbie."
 After watching tv, I ate an apple, some ice cream and a snickers candy bar. The food made me so tired I decided to take a short nap while I wait for the Doctor's call. I fell asleep on Newbie and I's bed, right next to the phone, so I wont miss any calls that came through.
 It wasn't a long nap, and when Opal decided to jump onto the bed with me, I woke up. She looked irritated and wouldn't stop scratching. Then I noticed that she had fleas.
 I sat up on the bed and saw Storm on the floor and he too had fleas and wouldn't stop scratching.

"Awe. You guys need a bath."
I got up and wobbled my way to the hall bathroom and gave each cat a thorough cleaning, using a special shampoo I picked up at the market the other day, I made sure that no flea made it out of the tub alive.

"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.
 I snatch the phone up and answered it with eagerness.


"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
 After finding out we were having a baby girl, we were beyond excited, both Newbie and I were secretly hoping for a daughter. Mostly because we already have two sons together, but if we were to have a boy that would be just as great, but a girl was what we hoped.

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.
 "Dawn!! Come here a minute!" Newbie hollered from inside his secret room. I placed my paintbrush down and made my way to the door to see what he wanted.
 Today was October 31th, Halloween, and I wore my new maternity shirt I bought a couple weeks ago. It showed a skeletal rib cage with a baby girl skeleton where my belly is. I thought since I was too big for a halloween costume I might as well wear this, plus it was super cute.
 When I turned the corner I saw Newbie shirtless and sweaty, standing right in front of the room he has spent a lot of time in the last 7 days.

"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?"
 Newbie grabbed my hand and walked me a little more towards the middle of room and said, "Well I called a few of my friends and asked them to help me paint the walls and decorate the room. Asher was a big help with the heavy lifting and the matching as you see what my mom's doing. My first intention was everything pink, like all different shades of pink, but she was like you 'you need variety' and pretty much took over the whole designing. Asher, the guys and I just listened."

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."
 "This is my first daughter, our first daughter, our first child as a married couple and we can raise together this time. I only want the best for her, she will be spoiled rotten." As Newbie said this he got to his knees and placed his head gently on my stomach.

"Oh, Newbie that's so sweet."
 He got up from his knees and pulled me into a embrace and we began to kiss. We were so caught up in the moment that neither one of heard anyone enter the room.

"Now watch you have another boy."
 "ADDY!!" I yelled, letting go of Newbie to face my friend. "When did you get here?"

"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.
 The laughing must have excited the baby because I felt a strong kick and then my water broke. "Ah, Newbie, Addy. The baby is coming."

Both got wide eyed and ran to my aid. Addy called the ambulance and Newbie helped me downstairs to wait outside.
 20 minutes later I'm at the hospital with contractions hitting me every minute. The baby will definitely be here soon.
When the doctor entered the room, he ordered me to lay down on the bed, I was fully dilated, ready to be delivered soon.
 When he told me to push, I pushed. The pain was horrible and right away I was regretting not getting the epidural when the doctor suggested it.

"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.
 In the end Newbie and I welcome a new baby girl into our lives. I couldn't help but tear up when I looked into her little eyes and I swear I though I saw a tear in Newbie's eyes as well but I didn't bring it up.
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."

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
