She was getting big. She had a full-fledged belly now. Greg absolutely loved it. Jing-Mei liked it, but it was starting to get in the way at work. She could barely lift her patients. Jing-Mei sat next to her patient slowly stitching up a head laceration. Susan walked in.
"How's it going in here?" Susan asked. Jing-Mei shrugged.
"Mr. Carmichael is out like a light." She said with a smile.
"Good." Susan chuckled, "So I need to ask you something."
"Go ahead." Jig-Mei said.
"Well, we're throwing you a baby shower in a couple of months, I believe." Susan said. Jing-Mei's eyes widened.
"But I don't want a baby shower." She said moaning.
"I know. That's why I'm warning you before hand. We're also having a bacholarette party." Susan smiled. Jing-Mei groaned loudly. "There will be kareokee." Jing-Mei groaned louder.
"Gee, thanks." She shook her head, "What kind friends I have."
"Don't blame me, Jing-Mei. Abby's idea was the kareokee machine." Susan said as Jing-Mei finished up the stitches.
"As log as she doesn't sing, I'll be happy." Jing-Mei pulled herself up. Susan laughed opening the door for Jing-Mei.
"I don't think you have to worry about that." Susan said. Jing-Mei's eyes widened as she stopped in her tracks, "Deb?"
"The baby." A giant smile popped out onto her face. She felt tiny little bubble float around in her stomach. She felt the baby move.
"Is it okay??" Susan asked.
"It's perfect!" Jing-Mei dashed out of the room, "Greg!!!" She ran to the admit desk. Greg frowned as he looked at her. "Greg!!"
"Woman, are you okay?" He asked her. Jing-Mei nodded.
"I'm perfect!!" She squealed, "I felt the baby move. It moved!!"
"The baby moved??" Greg's eyes widened with amazement as he put his hands on her belly, "What did it feel like?"
"Bubbles. Goldfish swimming around." Jing-Mei said. Her eyes were filling with tears, "I felt the baby, Greg." He looked at her.
"I missed it." He said.
"It was too light for you to have felt it on the outside. Maybe in a couple of weeks." She said putting her arms around him. Feeling the baby move made this pregnancy even more real.
"We need to celebrate." Greg smiled at her, "Dinner?"
"Dinner sounds great." Jing-Mei giggled.

Greg pulled out the chair for Jing-Mei. She smiled softly.
"Thank you kindly." She sat down and picked up her menu.
"Get anything you want." Greg said.
"I was planning on it." She giggled softly. "Can you believe our wedding is in a few months?" Greg shook his head.
"I still can't believe you said yes." He chuckled, "You taking my name?" Jing-Mei nodded.
"Jing-Mei Pratt. It sounds wonderful doesn't it?" She said.
"I agree." He smiled as their waitress walked up to them.
"Good evening, my name is Antoinette and I will be your waitress tonight." She smiled at them, "May I start you off with a drink?"
"Yeah I would like some water, this Chicken marinara, side order of steamed veggies and cheesecake for dessert." Jing-Mei said.
"She's pregnant." Greg chuckled. Antoinette nodded, "I'll take the same."
"Very well." Antoinette took their menus and walked away. Jing-Mei reached over and took Greg's hand. She gave it a squeeze.
"Thank you for all of this, Greg." She said, "I love you."
"I love you too and I am happy you're carrying my child. I can't wait to find the baby's sex out though." Greg said. Jing-Mei smiled softly at him. When she first met Gregory Pratt, she didn't really like him. Sure he was hot, but she didn't expect to be here right with him, engaged and pregnant. Jing-Mei wouldn't trade anything for the world though.

Greg helped Jing-Mei to her feet as Janet called out her name. They were going to try to find out the sex of the baby today.
"Good morning, Doctors." Janet smiled softly at them.
"Morning." Greg said. Janet looked Jing-Mei up and down.
"How are you feeling? You've seemed to ballooned up." Janet said. Jing-Mei nodded as she rubbed her belly.
"I swear to god I'm already carrying a ten pound baby." She said, "The past two weeks, I've just exploded. I've been trying to eat healthy and everything." Janet nodded as she helped Jing-Mei onto the table.
"Any abnormal swelling or anything?" She asked her.
"Not that I can tell." Jing-Mei said, "I'm not super worried."
"Good." Janet smiled as she felt Jing-Mei's glands, "And how is Dad?" Greg smiled brightly.
"Perfect." He said, "I'm excited for the baby to be here."
"You have any names picked out?" Janet asked. Jing-Mei nodded.
"Yeah. We wanted literary names so we have Juliet and Portia picked out if it's a girl and Dante picked out if it's a boy." She said.
"If it's a boy he'll have my name for his middle name." He said.
"Those are fine names." Janet said looking at Jing-Mei's feet. "Everything looks fine here."
"Good." Jing-Mei giggled as she wiggling her toes. Greg winked at her wanting to kiss those adorable little toes.
"Why don't you lay back and we'll start the sonogram." Janet suggested. Jing-Mei nodded and laid back. Greg grinned brightly.
"I'm so excited." Jing-Mei said as she took Greg's hand.
"Me too." Greg whispered.
"Here we go." Janet said, "There's the baby. The heart beat looks strong. Nice spine. It's at the right size and everything."
"Great." Jing-Mei grinned. Janet moved the machine around a little bit.
"Okay, I can see the sex. Do you really want to know?"
"Yes." Greg grinned. Janet smiled.
"Why don't you two have a look and see if you can tell." Janet said. Greg and Jing-Mei both examined the screen. Sure they were trained in reading ultrasounds, but they weren't trained in determining the sex of a baby. Jing-Mei's eyes widened as she gasped.
"Oh my god!" Her eyes welled with tears. Greg looked at her.
"What is it?" He asked her. Jing-Mei looked at him.
"A girl. A little girl." She whispered. Greg's eyes widened.
"Really?? We're having a girl??" He asked. Janet nodded.
"A very healthy baby girl." Janet said, "Congratulations."
"Wow." Greg whispered. He was having a little girl. "Our little Shakespearean." Jing-Mei grinned brightly pulling Greg down into a kiss.
"Thank you. Thank you so much, Sweetheart." Jing-Mei whispered. A little girl. Having a little girl would be perfect.
