Pregnant and not loving it..

It'd been at least four months of being pregnant now and I'd sent Wes out almost every night for some new food item that we didn't have. I could no longer find a comfortyable position in which to sleep. I spent most nights awake or kicking Wes in my sleep as I tried to get comfortable. Roger had decided to stay until after the baby was born. I was still going into the office despite Wes and Roger's worried phone calls every other hour and repeated requests to take it easy.


I'd spent the last week complaing about how nothing seemed to be fitting and that I looked like a loated whale. And the tinest things seemed to be setting me off lately. Like just last night Wes had said something about the office , or me not needing to work, I'm not really sure. All I remember is throwing the cordless phone at his head, then nearly screaming at him that I didn't want to talk about it. In between being pissed with him and Roger I've also been crying at random moments for no real reason. I'd managed to scare my office staff so much that I was forced to take earlier and extended maternity leave, just so they wouldn't have to deal with me. I came home from the office and my latest doctor's appointment. Roger was with Wes in the living room. "Can I kill Peiere?"

Granted that I wasn't carrying another life in my own body but I was tired. Days had been hell and nights even worse. We could no longer have sex so Lilah's pent up frustration was taken out by throwing things at me. Of course all Roger got was a raised voice or a pointed look. I'd spent hundreds on every food concoction you can think of. I just wished actually having a baby would be more than her being pregnant.
"Why would you want to kill Piere luv?"

Roger'd gotten used to Lilah being bitchy, but her being pregnant and bitchy times fifty wasn't his idea of fun. Although he was happy for only getting glares and pointed looks from the mommy to be. Poor Wes on the other hand got the worat of it.


I sat down and looked at him. "I went to see him today after work and he's instisting that I stay home and work from here. And that if I keep going the way I Am I'll end up on bed rest for the rest of the pregnancy." I'd forgotten that I'd told Wes I was going to be a good girl and not go to the office for work, since they'd tried to ban me from there until after the baby was born. I'd been going anyway, it wasn't like anyone there was actually going to stop me. "Do we still have cranberry apple juice?"

Over the past four months my skills had gotten better. I'd learned how to dodge flying objects and Leo had noticed on our nightly patrols. Being pregnant Lilah insisted that I didn't go out because of the danger factor but it was the only way to act out the overwhelming emotion of living with a pregnant woman. I'd began exercising more, eating better, and my minimal drinking was brought down to none. When she was 'normal' she'd give my compliments on my body.
I'd gotten use to her 3o'clock cravings and my body had even adjusted. I was ususally already up one she rolled over to ask for something.
Before Lilah sat down Cecilia brought her a glass. The older woman was the hugest help and I wanted her to be the nanny too if possible. She said she was a mother of five who were grown and off in university's. Working for us was something to keep her busy while they were out of town. She'd give me tips and her advice made a tense situation as relaxed as possible.
Reaching for Lilah's legs I pulled her feet in my lap and took off her shoes. Her feet were a bit swollen and red. I slowly began to massage her feet.
"You're not supposed to be working.", I replied."Piere's right...work stresses you and stress isn't good for the baby."

The last four months had been horrible, but not unbearable. Wes was doing all he could to be supportive even when I got angry and threw things at him. I had to give him credit though he'd learbned how to duck quicker. Sighing I let Wes pull my feet into his lap and start massaging my sore feet. I sighed in frustration as he said I shouldn't be working. "I know what's good for the baby" I snapped. I'd been irritable all day and this wasn't helping at all. I sat there drinking my juice. "Where's Roger?" I was starting to get a headache.

"I think he's out shopping for the nursery.", I ignored her snappy remark. A big key, as I'd been advised by Cecilia, don't engage her irritation. I just kept rubbing her feet. I noticed her pained expression."You okay?"

I looked at him in a mixture of surprise and annoyance as he said where he thought Roger was. "You let him go shopping.. alone?" I drank more of my juice as he asked if I was ok. "Just a headache. "You're going to regret letting Roger go shooping alone in a baby store" I pointed out. "And I can do work at the office and remain stress free" I was determined to stay working at the office for as long as possible come hell or high water. I didn't give a damn if Peiere, Roger and Wes all agreed about what I should be doing.

"I'm not the shopping type unless I'm with you cause then I get to look your sexy body in new clothes.", I leaned over and kissed her."Besides, the man has damn good taste."
Roger and I had become allies versus the pregnant monster Lilah would become. Not to mention he pretty much decorated the nursery himself. It was like having a free nanny so I couldn't complain.

I smiled a little as he explained why he'd let Roger go alone to shop. "Yeah he does.." I kissed him back. "Did he finish the nursery yet?" I'd asked Roger about it a few weeks ago, but he'd just practically shoved me out the door and said it wasn't ready and as the mommy to be I had to wait. I'd been annoyed and taken it out on Wes. Roger knew how much I hated being made to wait for anything so that had just made things worse. I sighed. "It really needs to be time for it to come out already.." We hadn't really started talking about names yet, but Roger'd bought a few baby naming books and the entire series of the 'What to expect' books. So far the one for mother's was a great help for me he'd also boyght the one they had for father's to be for Wes.

I shrugged."I swore to secrecy.", I chuckled."When do we find out what we're having?"

'The messenger hasn't been sent out yet but he will be soon. I found out about your bundle from some co-workers gossip. News travels fast in our business you know that sweetie.'

I was surrounded by books of all kinds. I'd found some information on the firm but nothing I didn't already know.

I nodded about the messenger, then sighed when he told me the other part. "Yeah I know.. does anyone important from the firm know yet? About the baby I mean? And Carlo I hear one little cutesy mother to be comment out of you I'll kill you." I knew he hadn't said it yet, but I could tell it was coming. It seemed to be a tradition, the same as complete strangers wanting to touch your stomach and talk to the baby.

'Why so testy? Don't be mad mommy.', he chuckled.'So far the info. has stopped at me. I only knew because I dug. You need to find a loophole and fast because it's only a matter of time.'

"Carlo shut up. I'll work on finding a loophole, I'll call you if anything else comes up." I hung up and went to check on Wesley.I walke into the library. "Find anything?" I figured I'd see what he had if anything before I told him what I had found out. I knew I could count on Carlo as far as the information being trustwothy.

"Nothing new.", I sighed."Nothing to help us...anything on your end?"

I moved over to his desk and sat down in front of it with a small sigh. "I called Carlo he said there should be a loophole in the original contract. Someone should be here with it in a few hours, maybe a few days. He knows about the baby, but the Partners don't know yet,but they will soon. Carlo also said whatever we're going to do we should do fast because we're running out of time. Although he seemed pretty confident in you researching capabilities.." I smirked. "I'm sure there's a way out in the contract."
