“‘Liv, we need to talk. I want you to know what’s going on lately.” Sam sat down on the desk chair and pulled it close to the lounger that Olivia’s job had provided when they found out she was pregnant. Her boss, Landon Reed knew that the young couple was struggling and wanted Olivia to be as comfortable as possible during and after the pregnancy.
“Ugh…I’m just so ready to pop!” Olivia rubbed her rather large belly.
“Won’t be long now until he gets here!” Sam smiled warmly.
“Ugh…I’m just so big!” Olivia complained a bit to Sam as they got ready to head to the comedy club.
“You are so beautiful Olivia. Don’t forget that.” Sam said with his hand on her belly. “Ooooh! Was that him?” Sam said when he felt a small nudge on his hand.

Sam took Olivia out to their favorite comedy lounge to celebrate the big news. Of course they dressed up for the occasion, though Olivia’s clothing was definitely fitting a bit more snug these days.

The couple’s new place was cozy but it didn’t allow for a lot of frills. Moving in day had actually been pretty easy considering they only had a few possessions. Olivia’s job had loaned her a computer now that she had electricity. This way she could keep up with up to the minute blogging.

“Sure Hon, we can see what will fit and possibly stop by the consignment shop after work and see if they have any thing we can use.”

“Sam, I have a meeting with the contractors again today. I know we have a tight budget, but I’d love to try and at least get some pretty windows at the front.” It had been nearly a month since Olivia and Sam had revealed their innermost feelings to one another at the museum.
Everything was going to plan. Sam still disliked roughing it, but he was a good guy so he didn’t complain. He also loved waking up next to Olivia each morning. He still spent the occasional night at the Roomies place, but it was getting less frequent.

That evening Olivia called Sam and asked him to meet her at the park. They greeted one another affectionately enough and the awkwardness from that morning seemed to have dissipated a bit.
Olivia sat on the ground and patted near her and invited Sam to cloud gaze with her. It was something fun the two had done in the past and always seemed romantic and with little expectation.
“So, how was your day?” Olivia began.
