One Month later…
Edward and I have been so happy the last month. I almost want to pinch myself to make sure he's not just a dream. This is funny actually because I am currently in the waiting room of the doctor's office day dreaming of him.
I hate going to the doctor, but Edward insisted I come here today because I have had the stomach flu for two weeks and I can barely keep anything down. I swear that man worries too much.
"Isabella Swan" hearing my name brought me out of my Edward daydream as I walked toward the nurse.
"Hello, you can call me Bella."
"Alright Bella, can you follow me?" She asked while leading me into one of the exam rooms. She took my blood pressure, temperature and weight, everything was normal except my weight. I only weighed 104lbs that means with all the throwing up I have lost eleven pounds. Now I'm really glad Edward talked me into coming today so I can get checked out. The nurse left and told me to wait on the table and the doctor would be with me in a few minutes. I sat there in my navy blue track suit and my Team Edward t-shirt feeling like crap.
Dr. Chaney entered the room after knocking and introducing himself. "Alright Bella, it says in your chart you have had the stomach flu for two weeks is that right?"
"Yes, I am having trouble keeping anything down."
"Well Bella, I don't think it is the stomach flu or food poisoning because both of those tend to go away with three days or so. What was the first day of you last period?"
"It's been years since I've had one. I am on the depo shot."
"When was your last shot?"
"Um…" shit, shit, shit, I was supposed to get it when I got to Chicago and with the move and everything else I forgot about it. "I was due to have it the beginning of June but I forgot."
"Well then let's do a pregnancy test to rule that out then we can go from there. Here is a cup and the bathroom is through that door and I will be back in a few minutes to collect your urine sample."
I did as was asked and Dr. Chaney cam back to get the cup and left saying he would be back. This just gave me time to sit here in an exam room freaking out. I know it is a possibility I'm pregnant because Edward and I have never used any protection. Am I ready to be a mom? What will Edward think? Will he be happy? Will I be happy? Just as my freak out almost turned into a full panic attack Dr. Chaney came back.
"Well Bella, I think congratulations are in order, you're pregnant. I am prescribing you some prenatal vitamins and something for the nausea. We need to get you to be able to at least keep some food and water down. Also here is some information on what to expect in the next few months and the business card to my fiancé Dr. Weber, she's the best OB/GYN at this hospital. You don't have to use her but I thought I would refer you. Do you have any questions?"
"Um…er...uh I'm sorry I am in a little bit of shock. Um…I have lost 11 pounds in two weeks can that harm the baby? Also I have a glass of wine or two can that have an effect on the baby?"
"Bella calm down, I can tell you're panicking. Take a deep breath and I can answer your questions. Ok, I don't like the weight loss because you are so small already but you are not in the danger zone. Just keep your eye on it at home and hopefully the anti-nausea medicine can help you get some food in your system. As for the wine you've had, it is fine. A lot of women drink alcohol early in pregnancy when they don't know they are pregnant yet. Just abstain from alcohol here on out and everything will be fine, any other questions?"
"No, not that I can think of"
"Ok, well it was nice to meet you and don't forget to schedule an appointment with an OB/GYN as soon as you can."
"No problem, thank you Dr. Chaney"
I was in a complete daze as I left the hospital, filled my prescriptions and drove home. When I got there Edward was waiting for me. He has been staying in the guest house with me since I got sick.
"How are you? What did the doctor say?"
I think I was completely overwhelmed because at that moment I burst into tears. Edward came rushing toward me and wrapped his arms around me in the best hug I've ever had. He knew exactly what I needed to calm down. I had to tell him. He has a right to know. I couldn't look at him while I told him so I buried my head in his chest.
"Bella please, you're scaring me. What wrong?"
"I'm…I'm…I'm pregnant. I'm so sorry, this is all my fault. I understand if you don't…" I didn't get a chance to finish because Edward grabbed my face and kissed me.
"Don't even finish that sentence. I'm shocked, but happy and excited. Aren't you on the shot?" He asked with a confused look on his face.
"Let's sit down and I will tell you everything" I said as I pulled myself out of Edward's arms and pulled him to the couch by his hand. He sat down and pulled me into his lap and then I told him everything from the missed shot, the weight loss and everything Dr. Chaney told me.
"Ok now how do you feel?"
"Wow that was a lot of information. Well like I said I'm shocked, I didn't expect it. I am excited about becoming a daddy, before I met you I didn't think I would ever get married or have kids and now I can't believe it. You make me so incredibly happy and I am so happy you're going to be the mother of my children. I want to be there every step of the way."
"Well I have to make an appointment with an OB/GYN. Will you come with me?"
"Bella, you don't even have to ask. Just tell me when and where. Can I ask you something?"
"Are you happy about this Bella?"
"Now that the shock has worn off and you didn't freak out or break up with me I think I am excited too." I said while smiling.
"Bella, how could you think I would leave you and our baby? Don't you know what you mean to me Bella? You and our baby are my life."
"I'm sorry I doubted you Edward. It was part of my own freak out to think that you wouldn't want the baby and I thought you would hate me for doing this to you."
"Bella, you realize I was there too right? We did have sex together you know."
"I know, but I thought you would think I was trapping you or I did it on purpose."
"Bella, I know you. You would never do something like that behind my back. The thought never crossed my mind. Can I ask you something?"
I don't know why but when Edward wants to ask me about something important he always says 'can I ask you something' and I always reply 'of course.' Then we get into some serious discussion and come out on the other end of it with some sort of solution. I think it's funny and odd, but it's us and we have better communication then a lot of couples I have seen through out the years.
"Move in with me?"
"Edward you don't have to ask me that just because I'm pregnant."
"I'm not, you know I never do anything unless want to. I want us to go to sleep in each others arms every night and wake up in them every morning."
"Well how can I say no to that? Of course I will, it actually makes sense not only because of the baby but I don't think we have spent a night apart since our first date." I can't believe the turn of events since I walked through my front door. I thought I was going to get dumped and end up a single mom and now I am moving in with my boyfriend and couldn't be happier.
"I think you're right. You just made me the happiest man on the planet. Can I ask you something else?
"Bella, you make me happy and I love you with all my heart. I want you to be my wife. Please, marry me?"
"Yes" I said as he kissed me softly on my lips. Then he took me off his lap and sat me on the couch and left the room without saying anything. Just as I started to panic he came back into the living room and kneeled in front of me and pulled something from behind his back.
"Bella, I picked this up the day you went home sick from the office and I've been carrying it around with me since. I didn't want to propose while you were sick and now that I know why, it just makes me know I have made the right choice." He opened the box to the most beautiful ring I have ever seen it was a huge round diamond in the center with tiny round diamonds surrounding the band. He took the ring out of the box and picked up my left hand from my lap and placed the ring on my finger.
"Do you like it Mrs. Cullen?"
I didn't even answer him. I just launched my self off the couch and attacked his lips with mine. We both fell back with the force of my attack and I landed on top of him.
After a few minutes of intense kisses I jumped up off Edward and ran at full speed to the bathroom and started throwing up and dry heaving. Edward was of course right behind me.
"Baby, are you ok?"
"Yeah…I think so" I said as I walked over to the sink to brush my teeth.
"How about I get you some of that anti-nausea medicine and make us some dinner while you lay down on the couch? What do you want to eat?"
"That sounds really good, I am exhausted. I would love to have the Mac & Cheese I have in the freezer from Trader Joe's. There is enough to share and we can have a small salad too, if you don't mind."
"Not at all, I think I can manage the microwave and putting together a salad. You go lay on the couch and rest, love."
I walked into the living room, took off my hoodie and laid down to rest. I can't believe all the things that have happened in my life since I graduated from law school. I am still trying to wrap my mind around everything. While I was thinking about how much my life has changed for the better I must have lost track of how long it had been as Edward came into the room to bring me my dinner.
"Here you go Baby. What kind of dressing would you like, ranch or balsamic vinaigrette?" He asked while sitting the TV tray in front of me. As I sat up I told him I wanted ranch and he just stared at me.
"I'm not sure if I love the shirt you're wearing or hate it." I was wearing my new Team Edward shirt that has a picture of Edward Scissorhands on it. I thought it was funny so I got it as a joke to wear for Edward. The three Cullen brothers have a t-shirt addiction. They all either wear band t-shirts or funny shirts they get off the internet.
"Well I got it because of you. You should love it!"
"I love you're wearing a shirt with my name on it but I could do without the picture of Johnny Depp."
"Edward, are you jealous of a picture of Johnny Depp wearing white face make-up, leather and scissors on his hands? Please, you're so much hotter then him. I got it as a joke."
"Ok, sorry I have no idea why I reacted like that. I do love it, now that you put it like that. Emmett will get a kick out of it when he sees it."
"I'm sure he will"
After that we enjoyed our delicious dinner together and I actually kept it down. We decided to watch a couple episodes of Lost on DVD while we ate or dinner. After we finished Edward cleaned up and refused to let me help. When he was done he joined me on the couch to watch some more TV, and I have never been more content then watching TV with Edward while I lay my head in his lap and he ran his fingers through my hair. I don't know when I fell asleep but I woke up to Edward carrying me up the stairs and telling me to go back to sleep.
