You say it's your birthday, July 2039

Not long to go now for Nick and Sarah Moretti, who are expecting their fourth child! The nursery has been ready for months and all they’re missing now is a baby to live in it. Baby Moretti is due in October 2039.

Leslie’s baby bump is only just barely there but just seeing that slight swell of her belly makes this baby seem that little bit more real to her and her husband Dominic. Baby Lachance is due in February 2040 and will be the first Lachance born in 17 years!

An unexpected bonus from work for Zane meant he and his wife Chloe suddenly found themselves with some much-needed cash on their hands! They tried to use it to pay back Zane’s brother Amar for his generous gift of some nursery basics but Amar insisted they keep the money, and get themselves some little extras. So now the nursery has carpet, a fresh coat of paint and some nice curtains. Baby Hamilton will arrive in January 2040.


Now that Maia is in her second trimester, she and Ethan have told Willow she’ll be a big sister again soon enough. Willow now spends a good portion of the day talking to her little brother or sister through Maia’s belly. Baby Novak is due in February 2040.

  1. SO many babies! I am so excited for all of them and I can't believe its been 17 years since a Lachance baby was born! Certainly need to make up for lost time there :) I'm glad Chloe and Zane were able to spruce up the nursery a bit more. I'm sure it will be perfect for the arrival of their little bundle of joy.

    1. It hasn't been 17 years yet but it will be by the time Baby Lachance comes along. The last Lachance baby was Brendan, if you can believe it!

      I'd still like to add some extras to the nursery but it looks like a habitable room now at least! If I just send Zane to work one more time, they should be set. :)

  2. Baby baby baby oh! :) great news about the much needed bonus can't wait to see the little ones. Lol'd since Sarah and I have the same due month, though she'll see her kid before I see mine.

    1. LOL! Yes, I guess you and Sarah are in the same stage right now but she'll definitely zoom ahead of you soon enough! Her baby will probably turn one just a little sooner than yours too! ;)

  3. Do you progress all your pregnant sims at the same time regardless of when they when they were impregnated?Wow, 17 years is a long time for the Lachance family to go without having children, but atleast they can sigh relief.

    1. Not always, but the conception dates for these four worked out well enough that I could cram them all into the one post. The posts for the actual birth are always nine months after the conception though, even if someone else is due the next month and I could easily hold off until then.

      17 years is a long time! The founding Lachance only had one son and all of his daughters changed their names when they got married. And then that son only had two kids, so it's taken a while to get the name going again. There are plenty of Lachance descendants around though - they just don't have the name!

    1. For sure! Babies need somewhere to sleep, right? I hear paint fumes aren't great for them, so it's nice to get that out of the way before the baby comes along. :)

  5. SO excited for all these babies, got some first time parents in the mix which is always a lot of fun, and Dominic as a Daddy, ahh I can't wait for that one! He's such a sweet, great guy! Super excited for all of these babies, what they have, what they name them!

    1. Zane and Dominic are both going to be great first time dads, I think. :) Zane must be really keen, as he's Knowledge (no secondary) and he rolled the want for a baby. I rarely see that in my game.

      I'm really excited about naming all these babies. Based on what I've picked out so far, I think I want boys for Sarah and Leslie and girls for Chloe and Maia. Oh, especially Maia - I love the girls' name I have picked out for them. It's perfect!

  6. I loved this update, and seeing all those pregnant sims. I'm so looking forward to all these babies, I really can't wait!
    It' so nice that Zane got that bonus and that they were able to decorate the nurserey a little bit more.

    1. I'm even more keen to meet these babies now that I've worked out their names and what sex I want each baby to be!

      I was thrilled with Zane's bonus. I don't mind my sims struggling but when their funds are only into 3 figures and they still need to buy things, I start getting anxious for them to bring some more money in!

  7. Ah, what perfect timing for that bonus! So glad they were able to finish off the nursery before the baby comes. I'm really excited to see the names you picked out for all of them! Zane and Dominic are going to make great daddies. Such nice guys *swoon*

    1. Man, me too! I don't mind my sims struggling but I'd prefer it if the struggles came after they finished decorating their houses. ;) I get bored looking at ugly surroundings, lol!

      I'm about to play August in my game today and after that, it'll just be a couple more play sessions until I get to October and we can meet Baby Moretti. :D
