    @queenvortex808 My hubby got it and the Sims 3 for me in 2012. I played the Medieval first as the disk was glitched for Sims 3 and we had to send it back and the Supernatural one too. lol at the coupon in the package!

    Sacked out in the massage chair. Dang I need one of those!! The more I see of that house, the more I love it. Nice update :)

    @ZeeGee Thank you! I don't often have a room for those chairs so it was nice being able to use them especially as her pregnancy progresses. One of those would be nice after working a shift all day or all night!
  • ZeeGeeZeeGee Posts: 4,400 Member
    @bekkasan Oh yes it would. I have one for feet and legs that I used to have to use after 12 hours shifts but it's still packed somewhere!

    I don't know where all my time has gone, but I haven't got a chance to comment on your wonderful story for almost a month... :# I disappeared after the update where Dwight and Lorelei went to Isla Paradiso. It's easier to catch up over here than go so much back in the other thread, so here I am :).
    Starting from page 9, second update.
    I guess visiting Isla Paradiso is a bitter sweet experience for Lorelei, but fortunately she's got Dwight by her side now <3. They found some very romantic spots like by the water under the mountains, and the swing picture is very cute :blush: .
    Nice to see Triton. It reminds me of the fact that my sim Sofia is still expecting his second baby - it's been a long sim pregnancy for her :# .
    The shark is spying on their romantic moment.
    Poor, sick Dwight!
    Congrats for mastering diving to Dwight! He's got the best teacher ;).
    A hidden, secret and private island - that sounds sweet. My idea of a perfect honeymoon spot!
    Lorelei's new braided hairstyle is very beautiful :love: .
    Koolaid <3. Is Lorelei still thinking about getting company for him/her?
    Sim wedding gifts can be hilarious :smiley: . Who wouldn't want a bowling alley for a random gift from a distant relative :p .
    Oh, I just got an answer to my question about Koolaid - but didn't expect the company to be a dragon :hushed: ! That was an exciting gift.
    It's a very small mail box for all those gifts ;).
    Nice to see the tomb looking so much safer now. Lol, it does look a bit too unstable while "checking the sarcophagi for mummies".
    Lorelei's got very smexy sleepwear :p . I don't think she sleeps much when wearing it though :smirk: .
    Sounds like Dwight is getting very used to his new kelp diet.
    Congratulations for the pregnancy :blush: ! Here's hoping for a merbaby!
    That's another wonderful braided hairstyle on her.
    Dwight looks so excited. He will be an amazing dad :).
    Kind of silly that pregnant mermaids can't dive...
    That's a huge pool in the second house on their list... But the one they chose looks wonderful :hushed: . Directly by the water, and what a beautiful house! :star:
    Aww, sweet hot tub pics <3. I love it how Lorelei looks at Dwight in the first one of them.
    Congratulations to Lorelei for finishing her book! And Dwight's new career plans sound exciting.
    I want a massage chair right now. Lorelei doesn't look technophobic at all falling asleep on it :).

    @ZeeGee Oh girl! That would have been the second think I unpacked after my puter of course! Well.....If I had room for it.
    I've just got a second job in home health. As much as I dislike the paperwork, I do enjoy working with folks in the home. They are both part time, but I really like the people with the second company and if in a few months I'm ready for full time I would consider with them. I'm still considering a job somewhere I can drive, park my car, do my job and drive home and be done. That would be weird after 20 years though. LOL I don't want hospital and that leaves nursing home, ALF types, offices or insurance. Still tons of paperwork with those jobs. I want to work with people. You know how that goes. The job is not done til the paperwork is signed, stamped and triplicated.

    @meerkattime So super to see your wonderful comments this morning. I woke up and couldn't go back to sleep. Life has gotten busier for me as well with two jobs so will be less often to play and post. :( I'm off this weekend and hoping to play some. I am excited about a possible merbaby! You will have to post when you get yours!
    I hope you are getting some play time even if you are not getting posting time. I thought the dragon egg was a cool gift and maybe could be company for koolaid. We will have to see. :) Thanks again for all the lovely comments!
  • meerkattimemeerkattime Posts: 1,160 Member
    @bekkasan I'm not sure when I get back to my merpregnancy - I have so many saves and so little play time :s . Lately I've been playing mostly casual games that are quick to start and quick to finish because I just haven't had enough time to concentrate on games like The Sims 3 as often as I'd like to. But I do when I can - it's a great way to relax :blush: . I can imagine two jobs keep you busy but money is always needed. Hugs.

    The Cowboy and the Mermaid

    Hydration is needed for Lorelei scales so she swims out to sea and back. The fates will not allow her to dive while she is pregnant so she stays close to the shore and swims long enough until her scales no longer feel as if they are drying out. She could have swam in the pool, but, her mermaid instinct pulls her to the sea if she has not been in seawater in a few days. If she stays away from the sea too long, she could become fully human.

    47989609586_8f65099e61_b.jpg

    While she showers and changes, Dwight starts the grill and makes hamburgers and hot dogs to be ready to serve to the guests.
    47989609486_2faa9ef8ba_b.jpg
    47997392247_df316eb435_b.jpg

    The only thing Lorelei has ever cooked is a few sweets, so she makes some organic chocolate chip cookies. Hopefully a few of those will be eaten.
    47997385793_c28da3004d_b.jpg

    She rocks in the big rocking chair enjoying the comfort and motion thinking about their baby. Eventually she decides to get up and relax at the pool to wait for the guests.
    47997385638_8468180c69_b.jpg

    Dwight dives into the pool testing the water which is warm and soothing on this hot day. He comes up next to where Lorelei is sitting. "You need anything?" Lorelei tells him she is fine except she is not sure how she will ever get up off the lounger with her huge belly in the way.
    "That's what I am for! To help you get up so you don't have to struggle and hurt your back."
    47997392107_bb7a92aa5e_b.jpg

    Logan and Jules are the first to arrive and sit and chat with Dwight and Lorelei as they wait for the other guests.
    47997428336_b9a64eb609_b.jpg

    Logan decides to check out the slide while Jules dives into the water.

    47997428186_0d972457d7_b.jpg

    Papaya arrives even though he was not on the guest list. He came to the wedding as well even though not invited. Lorelei smiles at him with her good nature and tells him to have fun. Pearl has arrived and Lorelei greets her best friend with a hug. "Gosh a couple of days go by without seeing you and your belly explodes!" Pearl exclaims with a laugh. She touches Lorelei's belly and tells her friend that she is so very happy for her.
    47997428101_311d663530_b.jpg
    47997391702_30f18e5989_b.jpg

    Jules greets Clementine Parrot who recently broke up with her boyfriend.
    47997427976_68ecf78aa4_b.jpg

    Logan made a beeline for Pearl. The do seem to be attracted to each other!
    47997427901_d44bc2ee3c_b.jpg
    47997427821_e72de304a9_b.jpg

    These two were invited but never came to the pool area. She ended up changing into a work outfit for the chef career and leaving, and I think he just got bored and left.
    47997384698_1a408f1e9d_b.jpg

    Jules invited Clementine to play a game of Gnubb and they walk to the play area. Papaya is laughing at someone, not sure who though. I think he might be insane or childish?
    47997384618_9f12596a0e_b.jpg

    Suzuki had a bit of a crush on Lorelei at one time, but he's just friendly now. He's still dating various ladies on the island. He's thinking about Jaila, Lorelei and Dwight's mermaid friend who just arrived with Jarrett, her husband. Dwight goes to greet them. Jarrett is thinking of Lorelei and goes over to greet her after shaking Dwight's hand and congratulating him on the new house and the soon to be baby. Jarrett hugs Lorelei and tells her he is so happy for her and looks forward to meeting the baby.

    Well I would sure unpack it if I knew where it was! We have a garage full of boxes that are waiting to be unpacked until our remodeling is finished. I'm doing eights now so haven't needed it as much. It takes a really good nurse to do home health! My clinicals scared me away from that. Have you ever considered psych? I didn't think I would like it but I actually do! But as with everything, it's 1/4 nursing and 3/4 paperwork. :frowning:

    Okay, now off to read the update.

    A swimming pregnant mermaid! So adorable! Is that true, if they don't swim they can become human? What a nice party! Jaila's legs are amazing.
    The Sequel: Part 4


  • bekkasanbekkasan Posts: 7,948 Member

    @ZeeGee I'm not so sure about psych. We get occasional home health admissions that are clearly folks with psych issues and we have a very good certified psych nurse that does a great job with them and I am happy to turn them over to her. :) I had a friend back in NC that worked out at the state facility and loved it.
    I read that on carls site when I was reading about mermaids. I don't want her to become human so I make sure she gets in that ocean every day or every other day.
    Thank you! I had fun with her scales. I wanted something different for her.

    Just one question, How did Dwight heal again?

  • bekkasanbekkasan Posts: 7,948 Member

    @queenvortex808 Dwight had multiple surgeries, was in the hospital back in AP for over 4 months. He will never be completely healed, but he is better and stronger than he was and still must be very careful about what he does because of the damage done to his neck and spine and one of his legs was crushed and basically pinned back together.

    The Cowboy and the Mermaid

    Do you ever get that feeling that someone is standing behind you? yep....Jules just got that feeling. Good night to pick for the party Lorelei, full moon!
    47997384268_0054a61726_b.jpg

    Logan and Pearl continue getting to know each other by eating together.
    47997390857_b1b319f0ee_b.jpg

    Lorelei is chatting with Suzuki about the house when Silas arrives. He is a lot later than the rest of the guests.
    47997427241_963390eed0_b.jpg

    Jules decides the beach area feels a bit creepy so he goes up on deck to eat. Jarrett went into the house earlier and grabbed a book of the bookshelf and sat down to read it at the table. At least he is sorta being sociable.
    47997390642_014132cec7_b.jpg

    After dinner Jules and Clementine go up to the dock to sit and chat and cuddle a little.
    48026485127_d4dd32933d_b.jpg
    48026485092_b2257874f3_b.jpg

    Logan is not a slacker and gets his first kiss with Pearl while cuddling on one of the benches on the dock.
    48026379876_fac001f879_b.jpg

    Jules finally got to talk to Pearl. They got hearts but it might be too late. Pearl kept her eyes on Logan and Clementine who also got hearts for each other. The four of them went to one of the local parks. Jules didn't even try to chat with Pearl or Clementine, instead introduced himself to another sim at the park. Logan meanwhile picked some flowers and surprised Pearl with a romantic gesture.
    48026379796_8d29426b01_b.jpg
    48026412613_acd2889ebc_b.jpg

    He took her home and told her how much he enjoyed meeting her and how connected he felt with her and had never felt that way before with any girl. He asked if he could stay a little longer and she said yes. They sat outside and talked, watched the stars and snuggled together as the stars started disappearing and the sun arose.

    Pearl took his hand and thanked him for the best night she had in a long time.
    48027033138_1ee40cbb51_b.jpg

    Logan reached out and kissed her, pouring his heart out in that kiss. Pearl kisses him back. Logan tells her he is not letting her go. He wants a commitment. Will you be my girl. Pearl nods yes and smiles happily.

    48027103937_cebe2e4683_b.jpg

    Meanwhile, back at the Whitley's, Lorelei woke up early. She feels a bit of pressure in her back and funny little flutters in her belly. She walks downstairs and sits in the rocker on the porch as the sun rises. Dwight was sleeping soundly and she wonders if she should have woke him up. She has a feeling they are going to be parents before the day is over.

    @bekkasan: Lorelei and Dwight are so cute together. OOO, merbaby?
    :) Smile!

  • bekkasanbekkasan Posts: 7,948 Member

    The Cowboy and the Mermaid

    Lorelei goes back upstairs and sits down on the loveseat. Dwight comes out of the bathroom, fresh out of the shower and sits next to her. "Everything ok?"
    "Well, I feel a bit unsettled this morning. I have a lot more pressure in my back and have been having small contractions since I woke up. Today might just be the big day!"
    "Your bags are packed and the car is on standby. I think everything is ready for the trip to the hospital. Why don't you get dressed and we will leave."
    48029906078_a67d708137_b.jpg

    Lorelei stood up to go get dressed, she grabbed her belly as a particularly strong contraction hits her. Dwight alarmed gets up to support her.
    "Oh my, yes, that one is a lot stronger!" Lorelei exclaims.
    Lorelei breathes through the contraction as she was taught and Dwight flaps his arms and dances around in a bit of a panic. "We need to go to the hospital. Lets hurry to the elevator as soon as the contraction is over."
    48029864091_d99392769b_b.jpg
    48029863836_61db1f977e_b.jpg

    Lorelei changes her clothes and tells Dwight she is ready.
    48029905508_36b87c4437_b.jpg

    She starts to turn to the elevator and grabs her tummy again. "There is no time. The baby is coming!" she shouts.
    A calmness descends over Dwight replacing the previous panic he had felt as he watched her have the first hard contractions. He talks with her softly and calmly and tells her "You can do this, breath slow, in and out." His voice soothes her as nothing else could and soon baby Erin is born. Baby Eric soon follows, and last but certainly not the least was baby Austin.
    48029905318_d35d56f47d_b.jpg

    48029863141_eaf90efcd8_b.jpg
    48029863031_93dac35e70_b.jpg

    Dwight looks a bit awed and quiet as he looks around the room at the babies. He holds Eric and quickly got his clothing changed as he was soaked. Lorelei is feeding Austin who seemed to be the hungriest of the three. He snuggles and plays with Eric and then places him in a bassinet and picks up Erin who also got a change of clothing. He decides changing babies isn't too hard if you make faces at them while you are doing it. He thinks to himself he needs to call Logan and see if he can arrange a delivery of a couple more cribs and baby things. They only have one crib and one high chair and a couple of the bassinets. He finds himself choked with emotion and so much love it almost overwhelms him. He watches Lorelei as she feeds Austin and he thinks to himself that a year ago he was ready to give up on life. Tears fall from his eyes as he realizes all that he would have missed. He sends a prayer thanking God for saving his life so he could have this blessing.

    48029904463_5a24076d99_b.jpg

    Lorelei finishes feeding Austin and burps him and puts him in the bassinet. She is so happy she claps and does her happy dance. Dwight watches her and he loves seeing her do that little dance of hers. He puts Erin in the crib and texts Logan announcing the birth of not one, but three babies! Logan texts back a congratulations and arranges to have extra cribs and supplies delivered right away. Dwight walks over to Lorelei and takes her face in his hands. "You are an amazing woman! I'm the luckiest man to have you in my life. You gave birth to three babies today and you are up and dancing and happy. You are going to be the most amazing Mom ever. I love you so very much." After he kisses her nearly senseless Lorelei smiles up at him. "You are my strength, my rock and my heart. You kept me focused with your soft words and your calmness. The two of us can do anything together, even raise triplets! I love you with all my heart. You will be the best Dad ever." They stand holding each other until they hear the horn on Logan's truck letting them know he has arrived with the needed supplies. They are blessed with very good friends as well.

    @emorrill Yeppers!

    @ZeeGee I'm not one of the simmers who turns babies into toddlers right away. My babies are 5 days. I think it is fun watching parents suffer through 3am diaper changes and feedings and I don't cheat babies motives. I do use the swings and baskets briefly but, since I have Dwight and Lorelei on full autonomy I expect their will be lots of in and out for those swings. :lol:

    The Cowboy and the Mermaid

    Logan and Jules quickly deliver the new items and help set up the larger nursery. Dwight settles Erin into her new crib as Lorelei has settled Eric and Austin. The new nursery has room for a rocker as well as the three cribs. Dwight spins Lorelei and kisses her as they listen to the coos and sounds of the babies. He sits in the rocker listening to his babies as Lorelei soaks in the tub to hydrate and relax after her morning delivering the babies.

    48031592796_5a8cc18ac2_b.jpg

    They enjoy leftovers for lunch as the babies nap. They both make phone calls letting friends know about the birth of not one, but three babies. King Triton is thrilled and ready to make the journey to see the new babies. Lorelei convinces him to wait until they are a bit older and they are more settled into a routine.
    48052548616_c32072f2ea_b.jpg
    48052637887_bacc4bdd87_b.jpg

    The babies do what babies do best, sleep, eat, poop, pee and coo and totally enchant their loving parents. Lorelei gives Eric his first bath. She rocks him while Dwight feeds his sister Erin and gets her bathed and settled in her crib. Austin is already sound asleep in his crib.

    A very tired Mom and Dad cuddle on the bed very briefly before falling into a sound sleep exhausted after the first day taking care of the triplets.
    48052637507_475918b46b_b.jpg
    48052591968_89302356e0_b.jpg

    They make it through the first night with each baby waking up every few hours for feeding or changing. Dwight helps out with bottles as Lorelei is exhausted trying to keep up with breast feeding all three babies. Little Eric doesn't seem to mind the bottle his Daddy gives him and loves the quality rocking time as well.

    48052547106_b5d46aa65d_b.jpg

    The morning comes and they are both up, the babies asleep, perhaps long enough for them to greet the sunrise and eat a bite of breakfast.
