It's Time..

It'd been nine months since I'd gotten the news that I was pregnant. Since then I'd slowly learned to deal with all the changes, as had Wes and Roger. For the last few weeks I'd been having bracstion hicks contractions, which were a bitch, but nothing compared to the real I was assured by several of the women in my birthing class that had already had a child. Wesley'd stopped doing research on the firm every night. instead he kept busy helping Roger finish the nursery, and constantly hovering around me making sure I was ok. A few times he'd been hovering I'd told him to stop it was annoying. It was three in the morning and I lay in bed staring at the celing unable to sleep. I tried to find a comfortable spot to sleep in, when I felt a sharp pain run through my body. "Wes.." I tried shaking him awake as another jolt of pain ripped it's way through me. "Wes.. wake up" e didn't even move I sighed deeply, trying to slowly breathe, then I felt it my water broke. "Wesley" I turned the light on, and tried not to panic at the fact that I couldn't seem to get him to wake up.

It'd been the longest nine months of my life. It that time span I learned how to cook, manuever better, and how to decorate. Lilah and I were pretty happy despite the ever constant presence of Roger. It was like I was married to Lilah and him. One night I was sleeping and I heard Lilah say my name and I ignored it because I just knew she must have a craving. But the second time I heard my name she sounded strained. Sitting up with concern I saw her trying to calm her herself. Before I could say anything she flipped the light on and looked scared.
"Luv, what's wrong?"

I sat up and snapped my eyes shut and grabed fistfuls of the now wet sheets as another sharp jolt of pain hit me, from actually being able to answer Wes. Once it subsided I looked at him. "Hospital now" I ignored the wet sheets as I started to get out of bed. Once I managed to get out of bed and took a long deep breath, everything seemed to click. I stood there watching that panicked 'new father to be' look cross Wesley's face. Watching him scramble out of bed and start rushing around like a mad man, was highly entertaining. He couldn't seem to remember where he'd put the over night bag or anything else we had packed and ready to go for this exact moment. Trying not to laugh at him. "The bag's over by the closet with the coats" I informed him calmly.

I'd fought demons, vampires, warlocks but the mere phrase 'hospital now' struck an unimaginable amount of fear and excitement. I scrabbled around looking for the bag, the I decided on getting dressed, then I figured getting Lilah to the hospital was more important and roger could bring me pants later. Lilah informed where where the bag was so I grabbed it and pulled a shirt on over my bare chest. I shoved my cell, keys, and wallet into the bag before helping Lilah out the room.
As soon as I got in the car and began to drive I called Roger and let him know it was time and to bring me some clothes. I rushed her into the ER and they stopped me from going in with her.
'We need to put you in some scrubs.', a woman told me. I nodded and before I knew it I was in the delivery room. I slowly walked over to Lilah and instantly wished I was somewhere else because of the sheer hatred in her eyes for me.

I was going to tell Wes to put some more clothes on, but before I had a chance to he was rushing me out the door. Next thing I know I'm lying in a hospital bed hooked up to a few machines and being told I'm not allowed to push, as more sharp streaks of pain work their way through my body. I wanted to kill the nurse they stuck me with. I looked over at Wes, who I know I probably shouldn't be mad at, but right now it's helping me focus on something besides the pain.

It wasn't long before the doctor came in and started asking how I was doing. I glared at him. "I feel like a watermelon is trying to work it's way out of me, and the stupid nurse keeps telling me not to push. So how the hell do you think I'm doing" I shot back. I just wanted this whole 'wonderous' birthing experince to be over with. The doctor just looked at me. "Of course.. well we can give you something for the pain if you'd like?" I nodded. God yes give me anything, I just want the pain to stop.

Taking a deep breath I slid my hand into Lilah's and I bit my lip because of the strength she had in her grip. I guess birth really is the hardest thing to do on earth because I felt like she was going to break my hand.
"Doctor, please get her something.", I wheezed. He walked off and returned with a large needle.
Apr. 1st, 2007 02:53 pm (UTC)
I didn't even flinch as the nurse injected the needle into the IV. After that they left us alone for what felt like over an hour. It wasn't long before the drugs started to kick in and the pain subsided some. Shortly after the meds had kicked in the room was full of people. The doctor had Wes stand by the bed up closer by my head. While he stood at the foot of the bed with a nurse a few feet behind him. He looked at Wes. "Just try and keep her calm, relaxed, and awake. The meds help with the pain,but they tend to make you tired." He then looked below where there was a covered sheet near the bottom of the bed. He then looked back at me as a nurse near by him said I was fully dialated. "Alright Lilah I need you to push, but only when I say ok?" again I simply nodded.

After about four tiring pushes the doctor had me stop. The baby wasn't all the way out yet, but close. I was tired and didn't want to push anymore I just wanted to sleep. "Okay Lilah we just need a few more pushes.." I could feel my eyes starting to close.

Touching her face I whispered in her ear."You're doing so great luv, but you're not done.", I kissed her temple."Our little angel is almost here, just push."
I was becoming a bit worried at the rate of her heart.

I looked at Wes. "I wouldn't even be in this position if it weren't for you..so just shut up." I snapped at him.

Even though I was getting sleepy I wanted to kill both Wes and the doctor for teling me to push a few more times. They think it's so easy they should try it, then they'd see how wrong they are. I took a few deep breaths then pushed again, groaning a little. The doctor smiled after I pushed for the last two times. Shortly after that the room was filled with the sound of a crying baby. I fell back against the bed happy that it was over. Now all I wanted to do was sleep.

I smiled at her little snap at me. A minute or so later our baby girl was out. Lilah fell back and I pushed her hair out of her face."I love you.", I whispered into her ear as she closed her eyes. I made my way over to the nurse that was holding my daughter. I got choked up when she handed me a pair of scissors. Holding back the tears of joy I cut the umbilical cord. I watched as she left to go clean Samantha up. I walked back to Lilah and kissed her temple again."She's beautiful Li."
Apr. 1st, 2007 04:01 pm (UTC)
I smiled sleepily at Wes as he told me that our daughter was beautiful. "Really, can I see her?" I asked as I opened my eyes and sat up some. I looked around the room, while we waited for the nurse to bring the baby back in.

Moments later the woman returned with Sam in her hands, wrapped in a little blanket. I couldn't control the shit eating grin as Lilah held our daughter. "She looks like you.."
Apr. 1st, 2007 04:07 pm (UTC)
I smiled as the nurse handed me our daughter. I held her close to me, as she looked around. "She has your eyes" I told Wes as I lay there watching Sam look around. I don't think I've ever seen Wesley looking so happy.

"Yea...she does.", I touched her hand."She's so tiny..", being an only child I rarely came in contact with babies. There was that time where Connor was around but that was shortlived and he wasn't mine. It was different having my own child; a being created with half of your everything. I swallowed the lump in my throat trying not to cry.
Apr. 1st, 2007 04:26 pm (UTC)
I smiled as she yawned and closed her eyes as she rested against my chest. "She's perfect." A short while later the nurse came and took Samantha away to the hospital nursery. I fell asleep and tried to rest. The doctor told us that I'd be able to go home in a day or so. I was looking forward to being in my own house in my own bedroom with our daughter.

Back at the house Cecilia was busy remaking the beds and Roger was busy putting last minute touches to the nursery for samantha.

As they cleaned Lilah up and moved her out of the delivery room I changed into the clothes Roger had dropped off earlier. I walked into the new room Lilah was in to see her knocked out. Walking over to her bed I smiled.
"You were great today luv."
Apr. 1st, 2007 04:56 pm (UTC)
It'd been a few hours since Samantha arrived and when I woke up again, Wes was asleep in a chair next to my bed. A nurse came in to check on me, then left shortly after she'd finished making sure everything was ok.
