You say it's your birthday, March 2034

Round 31: March 2034 (Autumn)

Narrated by Susannah Carmody

When I told Sam I was pregnant, he didn't really know what to say. He was quiet for a while and was about as shocked as I was when I found out.



Despite his shock though, Sam does want to support me and be involved with this baby. Neither of us really know what this whole parenthood thing is going to be like but it seems a tiny bit easier now that I know I won't be doing it alone.

I'm in my second trimester now and Sam has been really wonderful. I'm feeling pretty good physically but I'm not going to say no to a back rub!

Sam is really keen for us to get married before the baby comes but I just don't know. I don't think we need to jump into that just because we're having a baby.

I definitely want to get married some day and I think Sam could be "the one". But I don't want to make a decision like that just yet. I've told him we should talk about it again after the baby is here.

We have, however, decided to start looking for a place together. Neither of us could afford a bigger place on our own but together, we can get a suitable apartment by the time September rolls around.

I'm very nervous about all this but I'm hopeful that Sam and I can make it work.

**********

Claudia Kirby is well into her second trimester now but she's still just barely showing!

Claudia and her husband Jacob can hardly wait until August, when they'll finally get to meet their second child!

Notes:
  • Claudia was supposed to be in the February birthdays but I forgot to include her. I took the pictures for that one while I was sick and once Catherine and Francesca were born, poor Claudia slipped my mind completely!
  • So Susannah and Sam will be getting their own place. Susannah is kind of stuck here: she can't afford a place on her own, her mother can't afford to help her out and there's no room for her to move back home. So circumstances have sort of forced her hand here.
  • Sam is sincere though and is quite serious about Susannah. He was serious about her before she got pregnant; he has engagement and marriage wants for her. Susannah is not quite there yet (she has a non-specific marriage want) but she's also an eternal optimist.

  1. I didn't even know (or remember) that Claudia was expecting! She does have a teeny bump! Compared to Victoria who carried much bigger when they were both pregnant at the same time.

    I hope things work out well for Susannah, what a surprise! I'll be sad these girls won't be sharing a room anymore, but Audrey sharing with her will be fun at least. Sam seems like a good guy, and hey, red haired baby would be fun. With her and Patience there's a chance to have a slew of red headed babes!

  2. I'm with Maisie, I actually forgot Claudia was pregnant as well. And she is tiny, I had a sim like that too. "I know, it's the mesh" ;)

    I think things will workout for Susannah and Sam. Things look like they are going well so far even if she's forced to move in with him sooner than she wanted to, if she ever wanted to.

  3. Sam is a great stand up guy, too bad Susannah couldn't be convinced to get married before the baby comes, that's how my Anthony got his Susie to marry him :) Now that I think about it, Bradford got his Suzanna the same way...must be something about the name :)

    I agree, you should have plenty of redheads running around soon :)

  4. Maisie, LOL, you commented on Claudia's last update, so you must have just forgot. But hey, I forgot too and they're my damn Sims! Claudia's bump is much smaller than Victoria's was but Victoria was "fat" while she was pregnant with Keira. That accounts for most of the difference but the bump on this mesh is really small!

    It was a short-lived roommate arrangement for Susannah and Rebecca, unfortunately but that's life. Rebecca and Audrey don't know each other too well at the moment, so this is their chance. ;)

    Ha, you know me too well! I'm totally hoping for a red-headed baby!

    Thanks for reading!

    Riverdale, LOL, yeah, it is the mesh but it's more fun to write it in as part of the story, isn't it? Some women really do end up with tiny bumps and then there are some like my friend who people keep asking "are you sure?" when she tells them she's not due until November!

    Things seem to be going quite smoothly for Susannah and Sam so far. They were friends for a couple of years before they got together, so that helps. A baby is bound to put some stress on the relationship but hopefully, they'll be able to weather that.

    Thanks for reading!

    Apple Valley, heh, yes, Sam will have to try working on Susannah once the baby comes. She's not opposed to the idea at all - she's just not sure it's the right time for them now. How funny about these Sus- Sims though!

    With any luck, we'll have another redhead around soon!

    Thanks for reading!

  5. That is so good that Sam is there for her, and it is so sweet that he wants to marry her...though guess if she is not there yet it is best to wait with the wedding. I am sure he will work his magic afterwards, sweep her off her feet and they will marry. After all he is a lovely looking decent guy, so don't think she can resist him for long.

  6. Sam's such a sweetheart! I really hope those two go the distance and I can't wait to see their little baby :). I too forgot that Claudia was pregnant lol. But that's ok, I never tire of cute pregnant sims :) so it's like a bonus!

  7. Speechless, I think, at this point, Susannah has too many changes going on to think about marriage on top of that. She and Sam haven't been together all that long, so she hasn't really thought about marrying Sam specifically now. But the idea has been planted, so maybe she'll come around.

    Thanks for reading!

    Mizzgin03, Sam is a good guy and I have high hopes for him and Susannah.

    Two babies coming up pretty soon. It's exciting!

    Thanks for reading!

  8. I'm glad Sam is serious about Susannah and the baby, and I hope they can make it work.
    I agree with Susannah that they don't have to get married, and rush into things because there's a baby on the way. Take it one step at the time, and see what that brings you. I do hope they stay together, and I'm really looking forward to their baby.

    I can't wait to see Claudia and Jacob's baby, they already have cute little one walking around, I'm sure this one will be just as cute!

  9. I'm glad Sam is stepping up to the plate. I'm glad Susannah isn't stepping into the marriage just because she's pregnant. I'm sure it might make things easier but definitely not a guarantee.

    Can't wait to meet both sets of babies. It seems like Claudia is such a tiny pregnant person. Cute!

  10. Tanja, very true. At least Susannah knows that Sam does intend to stick around, now that he's said he wants to marry her. But they're going to take their time with that.

    I'm so excited about Claudia and Jacob's baby! Daphne is such a gorgeous little thing.

    Thanks for reading!

    Choco, it's a big relief for Susannah, that's for sure. She liked him a lot already but you don't really know a person until you see how they react in a crisis.

    I just happened to look back at Claudia in her first trimester with Daphne and I mentioned her being tiny then too. So I guess we can consider her one of those lucky women. ;)

    Thanks for reading!

  11. Aww, goo! I was really hoping Sam wouldn't walk out on her. Like a couple others, I forgot Claudia was pregnant too. Too wrapped up in Julia and Susannah and their drama. Funny how the dramatics can completely shove aside the families without problems.

  12. Fini, Susannah lucked out getting knocked up by a guy who is willing to take on his responsibilities. Sam is really very keen on Susannah!

    Everyone forgot about poor Claudia, lol! Including me. You're right though, there was some pretty big drama between now and when she got pregnant.

    Thanks for reading!

  13. Aww I like how Claudia's bump is so tiny compared to Susannah's (add me as another that forgot she was pregnant). Susannah is such a cute pregnant sim! Awww! I like her even more. That sucks that there's not much she can do in her situation but I'm glad Sam will be there to support her and the baby. And he's showing just how serious he is. I'm glad they won't be getting married so soon, though. Yes, it would be the "proper" thing to do, but that's not always the "right" thing to rush into. And yay! More red haired babies on the horizon!

  14. Wow things are really moving along! After the initial shock, Sam showed what a great gut he is. Hope it all works out for everyone~

  15. Danielle, Susannah really is an adorable pregnant Sim. I guess if she wants another baby one day, I'll just have to let her have one. ;)

    Susannah is really stuck here and moving in with Sam is her only option, so it's lucky that she doesn't think it's such an awful option. Marriage will be for a little later on though, so Sam will have to sit tight.

    Thanks for reading!

    Drew, things really had to move along! This baby is coming and in Susannah's old place, there was no place for him or her to sleep! I'm hoping it all works out well for them.

    Thanks for reading!

  16. I'm so relieved that Sam is going to help out (and I really hope that their baby has his red hair!). I hope they're able to find a nice place to live that has enough room.

    Claudia's baby bump is too cute! :)

  17. Rachel, yeah, Sam has rolled up a bunch of wants for Susannah, including engagement, which was enough for me to decide he's serious (especially seeing he didn't roll them on a date and isn't a Family Sim). So they're doing this together, which has got to be better than doing it alone.

    LOL, I forgot Claudia was pregnant again until I got your comment! I'm terrible!

    Thanks for reading!
