This was simply amazing! I have never been an Mpreg fan. But I thought I would give it another chance and I just read your whole story straight through. I completely loved it! You did an amazing job with this. I love how incredibly well you kept Shizuo and Izaya in character. This was just incredible. You are a great writer and I just want to thank you so much for sharing this! I can't even tell you how much I loved it. :)

This is so disgusting. First of all, Izaya is forced to give birth, then when he has problem,
instead of helping him, everyone is fucking blaming if. You are a fucking disgrace.

What Happens in the First Month of Pregnancy?
Pregnancy is divided into 3 trimesters. Each trimester is a little longer than 13 weeks. The first month marks the beginning of the first trimester.
Pregnancy is measured using “gestational age.” Gestational age starts on the first day of a woman’s last menstrual period (LMP).
Gestational age can be confusing. Most people think of pregnancy as lasting nine months. And it’s true that a woman is pregnant for about nine months. But because pregnancy is measured from a woman’s last menstrual period — about 3-4 weeks before she is actually pregnant — a full-term pregnancy usually totals about 40 weeks from LMP — roughly 10 months.
Many women do not remember the exact date of their last menstrual period — that’s OK. The surest way to tell gestational age early in pregnancy is with ultrasound.
These are the first two weeks of a woman’s menstrual cycle. She has her period. About 2 weeks later, the egg that is most mature is released from the ovary — ovulation. Ovulation may happen earlier or later, depending on the length of a woman’s menstrual cycle. The average menstrual cycle is 28 days.
After it is released, the egg travels down a fallopian tube toward the uterus. If the egg meets a sperm, they combine to form one cell. This is called fertilization. Fertilization is most likely to occur when a woman has unprotected vaginal intercourse during the 6 days that lead into ovulation.
The fertilized egg moves down the fallopian tube and divides into more and more cells. It reaches the uterus about 3–4 days after fertilization. The dividing cells then form a ball that floats free in the uterus for about 2–3 days.
Pregnancy begins when the ball of cells attaches to the lining of the uterus. This is called implantation. It usually starts about 6 days after fertilization and takes about 3–4 days to be complete.
Pregnancy does not always occur. Up to half of all fertilized eggs pass out of women’s bodies during regular menstruation before implantation is complete.

A Woman’s First Signs of Pregnancy
For many women, the first sign of pregnancy is a missed period. Most pregnancy tests will be positive by the time a woman has missed her period. Other early signs of pregnancy include fatigue, feeling bloated, frequent urination, mood swings, nausea, and tender or swollen breasts. Not all women have all of these symptoms, but it is common to have at least one of them.
What Happens in the Second Month of Pregnancy?
The ball of cells develops into an embryo at the start of the sixth week. The embryonic stage of pregnancy will last about 5 weeks. During this time all major internal organs begin developing.
The embryo is less than 1/5 inch (4–5 mm) long.
A very basic beating heart and circulatory system develop.
Buds for arms and legs develop.
The neural tube begins forming. The neural tube will later form the brain, spinal cord, and major nerves.
The bud of a tail develops.
The umbilical cord begins developing.
Pregnancy Week 6
The embryo is 1/4 to 1/2 inch (7–14 mm) long.
The heart has formed.
Webbed fingers and toes develop.
The arms bend at elbows.
External ears, eyes, eyelids, liver, and upper lip have begun forming.
The sex organs are the same — neither female nor male — in all embryos until the seventh or eighth week. If a gene triggers the development of testes, the embryo develops as a male. If there is no trigger, the embryo develops ovaries and becomes female.
Pregnancy Week 8
The second month is often when pregnancy symptoms become very noticeable. Common discomforts like breast tenderness, fatigue, frequent urination, heartburn, nausea, and vomiting usually get worse. A woman’s body produces extra blood during pregnancy, and her heart beats faster and harder than usual to carry the extra blood.
What Happens in the Third Month of Pregnancy?
The embryo develops into a fetus after 10 weeks. It is 1–1.5 inches (21–40 mm) long.
The tail disappears.
Fingers and toes are longer.
The umbilical cord connects the abdomen of the fetus to the placenta. The placenta is attached to the wall of the uterus. It absorbs nutrients from the woman’s bloodstream. The cord carries nutrients and oxygen to the fetus and takes wastes away from the fetus.
Pregnancy Week 10
The fetus is now measured from the top of its head to its buttocks. This is called crown-rump length (CRL).
The fetus has a CRL of 2–3 inches (6–7.5 cm).
Fingers and toes are no longer webbed.
Bones begin hardening.
Skin and fingernails begin to grow.
Changes triggered by hormones begin to make external sex organs appear — female or male.
The fetus begins making spontaneous movements.
Kidneys start making urine.
Early sweat glands appear.
Eyelids are fused together.
Pregnancy Week 12
Many of the pregnancy symptoms from the first 2 months continue — and sometimes worsen — during the third month. This is especially true of nausea. A woman’s breasts continue growing and changing. The area around the nipple — the areola — may grow larger and darker. Women who are prone to acne may experience outbreaks.
Women do not usually gain much weight during the first 3 months of pregnancy — usually about 2 pounds. Women who are overweight or underweight may experience a different rate of weight gain. Talk with your health care provider about maintaining a healthy weight throughout pregnancy.
Most early pregnancy loss — miscarriage — happens in the first trimester. About 15 percent of pregnancies result in early pregnancy loss during the first trimester.
Learn more about miscarriage.
What Happens in the Fourth Month of Pregnancy?
The fourth month marks the beginning of the second trimester.
The fetus has a CRL of about 3 inches (8 cm).
The sex of the fetus can sometimes be seen by looking at external sex organs on an ultrasound.
Hair begins to grow.
The prostate gland begins developing in male fetuses.
Ovaries move down from the abdomen to the pelvic area in female fetuses.
The roof of the mouth is formed.
Pregnancy Week 14
The fetus has a CRL of about 4.5 inches (12 cm).
Hundreds of thousands of eggs are forming in the ovaries in female fetuses.
Some of the early signs and symptoms of pregnancy begin to be relieved during the fourth month. Nausea is usually reduced. But other digestive problems — heartburn and constipation — may be troublesome. Breast changes — growth, soreness, and darkening of the areola — usually continue. It’s common for women to have shortness of breath or to breathe faster. Increased blood flow may lead to unpleasant pregnancy symptoms, such as bleeding gums, nosebleeds, or nasal stuffiness. Pregnant women also may feel dizzy or faint because of the changes to their blood and blood vessels.
What Happens in the Fifth Month of Pregnancy?
The fetus has a CRL of 5.5–6 inches (14–15 cm).
Pregnancy Week 18
The fetus has a CRL of about 6.5 inches (16 cm).
Lanugo — a fine downy hair — covers the body.
The skin is also covered with vernix caseosa, a greasy material that protects the skin.
A uterus has formed in a female fetus.
Women usually feel fetal movements for the first time during the fifth month. It may feel like flutters or butterflies in the stomach. This is called quickening.
The pregnancy symptoms of the fourth month continue this month. Heartburn, constipation, breast changes, dizziness, shortness of breath, nosebleeds, and gum bleeding are common. Breasts may be as much as 2 cup sizes bigger by this time.
What Happens in the Sixth Month of Pregnancy?
The fetus has a CRL of about 7 inches (18–19 cm).
Bone marrow starts making blood cells.
Taste buds begin to form.
Pregnancy Week 22
The fetus has a CRL of about 8 inches (20 cm).
Eyebrows and eyelashes usually develop between weeks 23 and 26.
Pregnancy symptoms from the fourth and fifth month usually continue. Shortness of breath may improve. Breasts may start producing colostrum — tiny drops of early milk. This may continue throughout pregnancy.
Some women have Braxton-Hicks contractions. They feel like a painless squeezing of the uterus or abdomen. This is the uterus’s way of practicing for labor and delivery. Braxton-Hicks contractions are normal and not a sign of preterm labor. But women should check with their health care providers if they have painful or frequent contractions or if they have any concerns.
What Happens in the Seventh Month of Pregnancy?
The fetus has a CRL of about 9 inches (23 cm).
The fetus develops more and more fat from now until the end of pregnancy.
The fetus has a CRL of about 10 inches (25 cm).
Eyelids are usually fused together until about 28 weeks.
Pregnancy Week 28
A woman’s uterus continues expanding. Back pain is common. Pregnancy symptoms from earlier months continue. Dizziness may lessen.
What Happens in the Eighth Month of Pregnancy?
The eighth month marks the beginning of the third trimester.
The fetus has a CRL of about 10.5 inches (27 cm).
Testes usually begin descending into the scrotum from the abdomen between weeks 30 and 34 in a male fetus. This is usually complete by 40 weeks.
The fetus has a CRL of about 11 inches (28 cm).
Lanugo starts falling off.
Women often start feeling tired and have a more difficult time breathing as the uterus expands up. They may get varicose veins — blue or red swollen veins most often in the legs — or hemorrhoids — varicose veins of the rectum. Hemorrhoids can be painful and itchy and cause bleeding. Women may also get stretch marks where skin has been expanded. Braxton-Hicks con

After reading all the chapters, all I can say is, I pity Izaya. Heck, they just left him to solve his 'problem' himself after they forced him to bear the kid he never wanted, even if that 'problem' arose because of being forced to carry the child. He went nuts one time, then everyone blames him and leaves him, instead of helping him get through it (and hey, they were to blame for it in the first place). Shizuo can't even at least check on him during his 'healing' period. I feel that Izaya was just used in this story that I can't like it. I was hoping for some redemption in the end, but he never got it.
