AN: This is my first attempt at a Twilight story, so hopefully it will go well. I noticed that in a lot of stories Edward and Bella have twins, so I couldn't help but think about them having a larger set of multiples. And I've been watching a lot of Jon and Kate Plus Eight so I thought about writing a story about Bella and Edward having sextuplets. So here it is.
Disclaimer: I don't own Twilight or any of its characters.
Another year was almost over and my biggest dream had still not come true.
At the moment I was standing on the back porch of my half brother Emmett and his wife Rosalie's looking up at the night sky.
Emmett and Rosalie were married shortly after their college graduation -- which will be three years ago this May. Their marriage was also after the birth of their daughter Liliana Rosalie McCarty.
Emmett had wanted to get married as soon as he found out Rosalie was pregnant, but she argued that she didn't want to be fat and pregnant on one of the most important days of her life. And she was ecstatic when their daughter was born in April because she didn't have to worry about her huge stomach while receiving her diploma. And being remembered as the pregnant girl, though why she cared about what her peers thought all of a sudden was still a mystery to me.
Liliana is a two year old spitting image of Rosalie. With her long curly blond hair but has Emmett's dark brown eyes. Personality wise she was split right down the middle between the two. She was a little bundle of energy and absolutely adorable all you want to do it eat her up.
It would be really interesting to see what their next child would be like. Rosalie was pregnant with another little girl and was due in March. We all couldn't wait to meet the newest addition to our family.
I couldn't help but be a little bit jealous. And it didn't help that my best friend Alice – and now sister-in-law -- was pregnant as well. Her and her husband Jasper already had a baby boy named Landon Jasper Whitlock who going to be a year old in February. We all knew Landon was going to be exactly like Alice, but in boy form. He already had her black hair and was able to match her energy level, which is a pretty hard thing to do.
We all wondered if the next one was going to be like Jasper. Alice swore that she was having a girl, but she swore it was a girl the last time too. She wasn't as positive as the first pregnancy since she was proven wrong before; it was more of a hopeful wishing now.
We all knew how badly Alice wanted to have a little girl to dress up, though she did have a lot of fun dressing up Landon. Luckily we didn't have long to wait that much longer till we find out the truth.
As happy as I was for my friends, it just wasn't fair. I wanted a little bundle of joy to call my own. I had known since I was a little girl that I wanted to be a mother.
It wasn't strange to me that I wanted to start trying shortly after I got married to Edward. I had a feeling deep down inside that something was wrong, so I figured it would be best to start earlier. Little did I know how right my feeling was.
I was snapped out of my thoughts when I felt two familiar arms wrap around my waist.
"What are you doing out here?" Edward asked his sweet breath on my neck.
"Just thinking." I replied leaning into his hold.
"Well it's almost time to ring in the New Year, what do you say we head back inside?" he let go of my waist and held out his hand, which I eagerly grabbed, and lead the two of us inside the house.
As we walked into the living room I could see all my close friends standing around the TV. They all had their arms wrapped around their respective partner, a child in their arms, and a bulging stomach. Edward must have felt my uneasiness because his arm snaked around my shoulder pulling me in closer.
After Edward and I had tried to conceive with no results I felt it was best that I go to the doctor to figure out what was going on. After a lot of testing my doctor informed me that I was infertile. The news was devastating even though I knew that something was wrong before I went. It was much harder to deal with now that I knew my feelings were true.
But my doctor gave Edward and me some hope. She told us about other options that we could use to help us try and start a family. When we went home that night we laid out all the different pamphlets that she given us on our bed, plus Edward's laptop, and started to figure out our best option.
We even talked about adoption, but knew that would have to come as a last choice because we were still so young and knew it would make adopting a child a lot harder.
After much discussion Edward and I decided on intrauterine insemination (IUI). It felt like the best option for us and had a good success rate. We agreed that after New Years we would begin treatment.
And now New Years Eve had fallen upon us and it was almost time to ring in the New Year. And soon it would all begin. I couldn't wait to start a family with my true love. I knew that IUI was going to work for us, even Alice was on our side. And she always had a way of predicting the future.
I tried not to get my hopes up since it was only going to be our first try, but I couldn't help it. Once again I had a gut feeling something good was going to come, and since that faithful day at the doctor's office I knew to trust my gut.
"10, 9, 8, 7, 6…" my friends all started to count down to the new year, and I of course joined in with them.
"5, 4, 3, 2, 1… Happy New Year!" we all cheered as the clock reached midnight and the year changed from 2008 to 2009.
Edward pulled me closer and I meet his lips half way into our first kiss of the New Year. As I we pulled apart my eyes meet his, a big smile on both our faces. This was defiantly going to be Happy New Year.
AN:I know the chapter is short, but I didn't feel the need for it to be long. This was only the introduction and a set up for the rest of the story, so the rest of the chapters should be longer. The next chapter will take place about a month after this. Since I do not know much about IUI other then what is on the web, I figure it is best I just skip the procedure and move onto other more important things. Please leave me some reviews so I can know if you guys want me to continue or not.
