Bella POV

Shortly after my announcement, we decided to leave. I was beyond tired, and was starting to remember what the first few months were going to be like.

"So how far along are you," Rose asked.

"Um, I think right around eleven weeks or so. I have to make my first appointment in the morning."

"Do you think you'll have twins again," Jasper asked.

"Don't know. But there are several sets of multiples on both Charlie and Renee's side, so you never know."

"I guess when Edward said he wanted a large family, he wasn't joking, was he," Emmett said with a chuckle while driving.

"So how soon do you want to get married? 'Cuz I totally have a vision of it."

"I don't know. But I do know I don't want to look pregnant in my dress, because if I'm carrying twins again, you might as well just throw a sheet over me and cut a hole in the middle of it for my head. I was bigger than a house the last time and I know there's no way I'm squeezing into a dress."

"It's the end of October now, so how about December," Edward asked.

"We could do a winter theme! It'll be perfect," Alice said.

"Now you've done it," Jasper said as Alice pulled a notebook from Emmett's backpack and started sketching.

"Beginning of December then. I'll be showing, but hopefully not too much. Is that too soon, Alice," I asked.

Alice didn't answer, but was busy sketching away.

I laid my head on Edward's shoulder and closed my eyes. Anxiety started to set in a bit: how was I going to balance school, the twins, planning a wedding and being pregnant? Maybe I could take extra classes and graduate early, that way after the twins came, I could take the first year off before law school, if I even got in. I knew Alice would plan an amazing wedding for me, so I really didn't need to worry about that too much. I started remembering how I felt when I was pregnant with the twins. I really didn't have any symptoms until I was about four months along. This time around, however, I knew I wouldn't be alone. This time I wouldn't go through the morning sickness, roller coaster of emotions, cravings and doctor appointments by myself. This time Edward would be with me.

--

I woke up later that morning in bed. I heard my cell phone ringing on the table next to me. The caller ID showed it was Charlie calling.

"Hey dad," I said.

"Bella! Rebecca had the baby! You have to come and see!"

"Congratulations! Boy or girl?"

"Boy. So are you coming?"

"Yeah, I'll be there soon."

I snapped my phone shut and stared up at the ceiling. I placed my hands on my belly and sighed heavily. Also sitting on the table next to my bed was my letter from law school. I knew if I didn't open it soon Edward would. I grabbed it and opened it. I couldn't believe it - I GOT IN! I quickly got dressed and ran downstairs with the letter.

"Where's Edward," I asked Alice.

"In the kitchen," she said.

I walked in to find him with the twins and Carlisle.

"Guess who got in to law school!!"

"Congratulations," Carlisle said. "You've had an eventful week."

"I know. I'm not used to it. Oh, Rebecca had the baby, too." I looked at Edward, who was sitting with Masen on his lap. "Have you told him?"

"No, not yet," Edward said.

"Told who what," Esme asked as she walked in.

"Bella's pregnant," Edward said.

Esme screamed and pulled me into a hug.

"More grand babies!! I love it," she said.

An hour later Edward and I were stepping off the elevator and onto the maternity ward of the hospital. We saw Charlie standing outside of Rebecca's door, waiting for us.

"Bella," Charlie called.

We walked over and into Rebecca's room. There, sitting up in her bed was Rebecca holding my brother.

"Rebecca, he's,-"

"Big!" she said.

Rebecca passed him to me. He was big; plump and absolutely beautiful. I had forgotten what it felt like to have something so little, so delicate in my arms.

"What did you name him," I asked.

"Daniel William Swan," Rebecca said.

"Perfect," I said.

"What a beautiful ring, Bella," Rebecca said. "Where ever did you get it?"

"Edward gave it to me," I said sitting in a chair next to her.

"He what," Charlie said looking at Edward.

"Oh calm down, Charlie," Rebecca said.

"He asked last night. It was really romantic."

"You might as well tell them the other part too," Edward said.

"Are you pregnant," Charlie asked.

"..yeah. And I got into law school."

Rebecca started crying, and Charlie shook his head. Edward and I both took it as a bad sign and didn't stay much longer. We stopped in front of the nursery and looked at the newest Forks residents.

"Are you alright," Edward asked.

"I'm fine. Just a little hurt, that's all."

"I could tell."

"I just thought he'd be okay with it. I mean, it's been a few years since the last time."

"He'll come around on his own. Maybe Rebecca will help."

"I hope so. Do you think we should look at houses?"

"Why?"

"So we're not in the way."

"Who said we're in the way?"

"No one, but Edward, there could be six of us in a few short months. We should really think about a place of our own. Somewhere close to school."

"So let me get this strait. You want to get married, finish school, buy a house and get ready for the baby?"

"Yes. I don't want a lot of loose ends."

"Whatever you'd like."

We stood there for another moment.

"You know, seeing you holding your brother reminded me of the first time you held Maddy and Masen."

"Can you believe we're going to do it again?"

"It's a bit sooner than what I had planned, but yeah. Hopefully we won't have the scary moments this time around."

"As long as you stay away from Tanya, we shouldn't."

Edward drew my face up so I was looking directly at him.

"I swear to you I will never be with her again. You don't need to worry about that."

“Good."
