The story starts with Nessie and Jacob finding out they're having a baby. *the characters are SM's (except for a few later on), but the story is all my family and mine. This is my first time ever writing something like this. Comments are welcome. Hope you enjoy.

Chapter 1 The News
“TWINS!” That’s all I heard, nothing else.
Jacob and I both must have been in shock, because my entire family was now surrounding us.
I’m only three months pregnant, but I look like I’m gonna pop any day now. No one knew what to expect with my pregnancy. Grandpa Carlisle had told us that there was probably no chance of me having a baby, since I didn’t have a normal cycle, and wasn’t sure my body would adapt to a pregnancy. But, like everything else about me, I proved anything was possible.
Jacob and I got married a year ago, of course it was beautiful, Alice had planned it. It was a rocky road to the alter, after all, everyone but me knew about the imprinting, the finding of your true soul mate/your other half. So, I had to figure out my own feelings and Jacob’s, before anyone told me what was going on. At first, I was angry, then confused. Why didn’t they just tell me about the imprinting? But after awhile I realized that they wanted me to have choices. Once Jacob and I got everything out in the open, things went smoothly, until recently!
Three months ago out world was turned up-side-down. I started getting sick, in between that, I started eat more human food (which I normally didn’t care for), just about stopped hunting and drinking blood.
“Grandpa, I need to talk to you” I said.
“What is it Nessie?” He asked.
“I think something is wrong with me. I’m not feeling quite like myself. I’ve been getting sick, eating more human food and actually craving it, I don’t feel like hunting and the smell of blood makes it worse.
Grandpa just froze, like a statue. I’ve never seen him act this way before. After all, I’m sure he’s seen a lot of strange things, he works in a hospital and is surrounded by humans there. I was getting nervous by his lack of response.
“Grandpa” I tried to mutter out.
Finally, he snapped out of it and started asking me a million questions. I didn’t understand what he was trying to get at, until he said something about a pregnancy test.
“ A WHAT!” I was shocked.
Again, I was at a lost. Why would he want a test done? I couldn’t possibly be pregnant, could I!!!
The only thing I could think about was keeping this from the rest of the family, including Jacob. Everyone was so overprotective of me and after what my mom went through with her pregnancy , everyone would freak out if I was pregnant. But, it was gonna be difficult, since my dad can read minds, keeping a secret was close to impossible. And good thing that Alice had a hard time seeing visions of Jacob and my future, hopefully I don’t need to worry about her.
“Grandpa, can we please try to keep this between us until we know for sure?” I asked.
“Nessie, I think you need to tell Jacob. He’s probably noticed the changes in you and is already worrying about you” he said.
“OK, when can I take the test?” I asked nervously.
Grandpa left to go get a test and I went to find Jacob.
I found Jacob down at our cottage. I loved the sound of that “our cottage”. It was actually a gift to my parents when they first got married and they lived there for a few years, then moved back into the main house with the rest of the family. So, when Jacob and I got married they re-decorated and gave it to us when we came back from our honeymoon (dad couldn’t stand the though of being under the same roof as Jacob and I when he could read our minds).
Jacob was asleep on the sofa when I came in, he had when on patrol earlier this morning. He looked so innocent curled up on the sofa. I hated to disturb him, but Grandpa was right, I need to tell him.
“Jacob” I whispered, “we need to talk, I have something important to tell you.”
Jacob rolled over, sat up, and smiled at me. His smile always made me melt and my heart race faster.
“What’s on your mind, Ness” he said so heartfeltingly.
“I had a talk with Grandpa today and something miraculous may have happened,” I paused to see if any of this was setting any alarms off.
He was just sitting there staring at me questioningly.
“We my be pregnant!” I blurted out, not knowing how to say it or what his reaction would be.
At first, Jacob just sat there staring at me with a soft gentle smile on his lips. Then, he pulled me into a careful hug and told me he loved me. After a few minutes, Jacob said “HOW?”
I had to giggle a little at that. “How do you think?”
“Well, how is obvious, but hooowwww?????”
Since it didn’t seem to be getting through his thick skull, I decided to show him what happened. I lightly touched both his checks with my hands and started showing him the images of every time we had been together. Then, of me getting sick, the strange craving for food, the lack of interest in hunting and blood, and finally my conversation with Grandpa Carlisle.
It worked, it had all finally sunk in. He had a look I’d never seen before. I wasn’t sure what to make of it. Was he happy…furious…or scared?
Finally I asked, “what are you thinking?“ I tried to sound calm, but my voice still sounded shaky.
“Oh, Nessie, I’m so…” he started to say, but instead he started to gently kiss me. His soft touch sent electric tingles through my body. I always got tingles when he touched or kissed me. I started to melt into him. We fit so perfectly together, we were truly soul mates, meant to be together for a life time. Everything about him; his smell, his smile, his touch was everything I ever wanted and could stay wrapped up with him forever.
Suddenly he stopped. Jacob just froze. Oh, no! It finally really hit him.
Thank you all for all the wonderful feed back. My life has been a mess for so long now and I really miss writing. I moved to another state not long ago, so once things calm down, I'll start writing again.
