Well, fear not! Our HollyBaby bloggers Sarah & Neil are here to give you a taste into their day-to-day chats about their hopes, fears and dreams for their unborn baby!

Sarah & Neil here! We thought you should be filled in on some of the thoughts that go through a nervous, excited and terrified pregnant couple’s mind so here’s some insight into emails and phone conversations we’ve had over the past few months…
Subject: Promise!
Promise me that if we have an ugly baby you wont post it’s pictures on facebook.
More importantly please promise me you’ll never post pictures of me in that terrible hospital gown with half my nipple hanging out.
Ok, I love you!
Please obtain the following:
Sour Punch straws
Rueben Sandwich
Spumoni ice cream
I know it’s 11pm, but you SHOULD be able to find all of these things. We live in NEW YORK!
Phone Call
“Do you think if I don’t talk to the baby for the first 2 years it will get a British accent like yours?”
Subject: Dinner
I really want california pizza kitchen bbq chicken pizza. So random, and specific. No, you don’t have to get it for me….. just can’t think of anything else to eat…..
Subject: UGH!
even with 8 hours of sleep I can barely get off the couch. I’m SO tired. When does this stop!?!?!?!?! It’s going to be a long day…..
After an e-mail conversation about a woman giving birth to a 16 pound in Texas
i’m not eating for the next 25 weeks.
16 pounds – you should be grateful when you only have to give birth to a 12-pounder

–Sarah Main, and a nice touch from Neil Eggleton
