Round 36: March 2044 (Autumn)
Sarah’s pregnancy has been taking its toll on her, so as of her 12th week, she’s been working from home.
She thought she’d be bored at home all day but she’s found that she loves it. There are absolutely no distractions (until the kids get back from school, of course) and she can easily take a break if it’s all getting too much.
Sarah is also celebrating her 39th birthday this month. Nick both took the day off to hang out with her but she wasn’t feeling up to anything more exciting than a quiet game of chess!
Sarah and Nick will welcome baby #5 in August.
Leslie and Dominic were due to meet their third child in May but sadly, they recently lost their little one.
She was far enough along that Stella and Oscar had already been told about the baby, so Dominic took on the task of “un”telling them. The twins are sad but not quite old enough to really understand what’s happened.
Leslie and Dominic are understandably devastated. They’re taking some time for themselves to grieve before thinking about if and when they might try again.
Penelope Ada, to be known as Penny, has brown eyes and brown hair, just like her mother.
Julia turns 33 this month and she thinks Penny just might be her best birthday present ever.
Other birthdays this month:
Alice Jacobson turns 18
Brendan Lachance turns 21
Nathan Collins turns 34
Miles Jacobson turns 41
Joanna Draper turns 49
Cara Moretti turns 55
Kit Royce turns 84
March wedding anniversaries:
- Oh Leslie. :( I saw her moaning and clutching her belly and was hoping it was just pre-term contractions. Then her mood plummeted and I got the pop-up that she'd had a miscarriage. And I always hate bad things happening to Dominic, after I killed off his girlfriend all those years ago. :( So I'm genuinely sad about this.
- What I generally do with my couples who miscarry is give them six months and then roll for when they'll start to try again. I've done that with Leslie and Dominic, so hopefully they will have a third child sometime in the near future.
- I am, however, happy that Sam and Julia had a girl. I liked my girl name pick better but I also just saw them with a girl, for some reason. The Whitneys are playable NPCs now, so they won't feature in their own updates but you will still see them popping up in Birthdays and in other families' updates.
