I was lying on my side with my eyes closed trying to fall asleep, well trying and failing. I pulled the blankets closer to me. It’s been a couple of months since Tanner purposed to me. I was about
34 weeks pregnant and my doctor was so happy. Getting to 34 weeks pregnant with twins is a miracle that I got as long as possible. Yeah no. I want these babies out. I was ready to burst. I was
twice as big as a normal full term belly, and I hated it. The doctor, Dr. Fisher the same doctor I had in the hospital, said I could go into labor really soon. I was having a hard time sleeping
because the babies are usually always moving around a lot. I took a deep breath and got up. Tanner was on duty for another 2 hours so I was alone. I gently got up off the bed pulling my hair into a
ponytail. I walked to the nursery sitting down in the rocking chair closing my eyes in exhaustion. I rocked back and forth as I listened to the gentle hum from the mobile turning in the crib
nearest to me. I felt relaxed for the first time in a while. I woke up to a sharp pain in my lower stomach making me look at the clock. I rubbed my eyes looking at the clock on the wall. Tanner
should be home by now. I looked around the dark room. We got the nursery down right after the paint dried leaving the boys to put together the furniture. They put together the rocking chair, the
two cribs, the changing table the toy box, and the storage box at the bottom of the closets. I talked to Tanner about the names for the twins and he started crying saying his brother would be so
proud. He also said he loved the name Bailey and would want his daughter named it.
We put little wooden painted letters over the two cribs to show which crib was for which baby. Bailey had green and pink on her letters as well as on her shirts and the padding on the sides of the
dark wooden crib. Now Wyatt’s letters were blue and red, as well as his sheets. Tanner chose it because he said his son should be a devil dog from birth. I just rolled my eyes as the mobile spun in
Bailey’s crib making me tired. All the furniture was a dark wood making it look amazing in here. I felt another sharp pain in my belly as it tightened. It has to be those fake contractions. I took
a deep calming breath trying to calm myself down. I walked out of the cool room and into the kitchen to use the house home. I dialed Tanner.
Me* Hey Tanner
Tanner* Hey Baby, what’s up?
Me* I was just wondering where you are? I thought you said your shift ended at 12. It’s 2 o’clock.
Tanner* Oh right about that….
Me* What Tanner?
I heard laughing and the clinking of glasses as they played poker. I shook my head at him even though he couldn’t see it.
Tanner* One of the guys wanted to play some poker at their house and he has been having some tough times right now….
Me* Tanner why didn’t you tell me?
Tanner* Because I didn’t want you to get mad at me.
Me* I wouldn’t have been but you know what? Now I am. Why couldn’t you just god damn tell me you were going over his house?
Tanner*Because well….I don’t know.
Me*Right now my hormones are crazy. I am so mad at you right now. I am fucking huge and now you are lying to me like I’m a child.
Tanner*Baby I didn’t mean it like that.
Me* Yes it’s exactly what you mean.
Tanner*Ryan come on I’m sorry.
Me*No you’re not. You think I’m a fat idiot who can’t do anything so you lie to me
I felt the tears start to roll down my face. I have been like this for the last couple of months. My hormones have been bouncing off the walls.
Tanner* Baby Your not fat your pregnant.
Me* That’s the same thing. I’m fat.
Tanner* Ryan, you are the most beautiful woman I have ever seen and you pregnant I can’t even think about it because if I do I will have to hide from the guys.
Me* So now you’re saying I am ugly like I was before I got pregnant? Thanks Tanner, you’re an asshole.
Tanner* Okay Ryan stop it now. You need to stop, calm down and think about it. You, you yourself, you are what I want to come home to. I want to sleep next to you. I want to sleep with you. I want
you. I want you to have my babies. I want to spend the rest of my life with you. I love you.
Me*Do you really mean that?
Tanner* Of course I do Ry. I love you so much.
Me* I love you too. I missed you today. I feel like crap so I don’t want to move.
Tanner* The doctor said you would be having the babies soon so your body will be saving your energy.
Me*I know I just feel horrible, I don’t know.
Tanner*Hmmm I will call the doctor in the morning, well in a couple of hours.
Me* Okay, when are you coming home?
Tanner* Soon baby. I will be leaving in about 30 minutes so about an hour. Because you know I am not on duty tomorrow.
Me*I know. Come home soon. I miss you and love you.
Tanner* Okay, I love you too beautiful. See you soon.
I hung up the phone and sigh. I put the phone back on the cradle. I felt another tight pain in my belly making me hold onto it as it was worse than it has been for the past couple of hours. I
closed my eyes and walked to the bathroom slowly as my belly was still tight. I looked at myself in the mirror. I was pale and I looked tired. I felt the pain again but this time it was worse till
I felt a gush of water between my legs making me fall to my knees, straight into the water. I felt tears rolling down my face as I whimpered in pain. The only thought that was going through my head
