Quantum Catz: BM: ::has taken the past couple
of days off work, and spent most of it in bed, sleeping, though
she seems healthier today than before::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::has been checking up on Becky almost hourly, even if only to let her sleep::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::just now she's propped up on her side, reading a book, enjoying the fact that she doesn't feel ill right now::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::slips into the bedroom, smiling to see his beautiful wife awake; softly says, a bit teasingly, since it's the afternoon:: Good morning.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::makes a face at him:: Mornings are over-rated anyway
YarnKittymon: TY: ::sits down on the foot of the bed on his side:: Are you feeling any better?
Quantum Catz: BM: I don't feel ill and i haven't coughed since i woke up - it's a good start, i think
YarnKittymon: TY: ::nods:: Did you want me to bring you a drink or anything?
Quantum Catz: BM: No, i'm okay ::hesitates, looking like she's about to say something but instead reaches up and runs a hand through her hair, which has gotten a bit messy while she's slept::
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiling weakly:: Hairbrush?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles:: Nah, i think i'll just leave it like this - start a new trend
YarnKittymon: TY: ::laughs:: I've seen worse. And I'm not just talking those bob haircuts like everyone used to have, either. ::smirks, but turns more sober; quietly:: Did you need to talk about anything? Are you okay?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::opens her mouth to say there's nothing wrong and then sighs and sits up more:: There is something...
YarnKittymon: TY: ::sobers completely, moving over to take Becky's hand:: What?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::takes a deep breath and says in a rush:: Well it's not really a bad thing as such, though not so great since i'm not well and i guess the smoke inhalation didn't help all that much...
YarnKittymon: TY: ::eyes widen:: Do you need me to get Isaac? Are you all right?
Quantum Catz: BM: No, i'm fine, i just...with the stuff with Maeve and Libby and with me not being well...i didn't want to worry you anymore than you...already were
YarnKittymon: TY: ::still doesn't understand; leans closer, looking into Becky's eyes:: What's wrong, Becky?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::takes another deep breath and smiles weakly:: I'm pretty sure i'm pregnant
YarnKittymon: TY: ::stares at Becky like she'd told him the sky had fallen, completely dazed:: *What*?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::jokes weakly:: You know, lots of crying in the middle of the night, nappies needing changed, nine months of dealing with odd food cravings before that?
YarnKittymon: TY: ::sinks down, laughing nervously:: How...? I mean...is it...the right time...?
Quantum Catz: BM: It's not a wrong time, i guess, though i never stopped and asked for a birthdate
YarnKittymon: TY: ::runs a hand through his hair, shaking his head; softly:: But we're not ready...
Quantum Catz: BM: ::chuckles, remembering her meeting with Ben:: No, probably not
YarnKittymon: TY: ::shakes his head, taking a deep breath to steady himself:: Well...I guess we have to *get* ready, don't we?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::reaches for his hand to squeeze it:: There's plenty of time
YarnKittymon: TY: ::squeezes Becky's hand, then puts an arm around her; softly:: Is that why you haven't been teleporting?
Quantum Catz: BM: I've been feeling too weak to do it, recently...i don't know if it was because of this...or just because i was ill
YarnKittymon: TY: ::holds Becky closer:: Either way, we're getting you to the doctor.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs:: I knew i'd be ordered to the doctor as soon as i told you this - i'm starting to feel better, honestly
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quietly:: I should've taken you before now...even if you didn't think you were pregnant.
Quantum Catz: BM: Everyone gets ill, Toby
YarnKittymon: TY: ::quietly:: I know, but medicine's not as good as we're used to. ::shakes his head:: Are you up to walking, or should I bring him here?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::sighs:: Yeah i can walk, i'm feeling better today, just give me a minute to get dressed
YarnKittymon: TY: ::after a few moments, smirks a tiny bit:: You deal with kids all day...are you *sure* you want another?
Quantum Catz: BM: ::chuckles:: I probably should've thought of that before getting pregnant
YarnKittymon: TY: ::gets up and lightly kisses Becky:: We're going to manage somehow.
Quantum Catz: BM: BM: ::smiles weakly:: Yeah...i hope so
YarnKittymon: TY: ::shakes his head:: I know we will. You're great with kids--even Milo likes you--and I guess I'll learn soon enough. ::smirks::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::finishes getting dressed; smirks:: You can be the one getting up in the middle of the night then, it'll help you learn i'm sure
YarnKittymon: TY: ::smiles:: Whatever you want...you're the one who already has to do the hard stuff. Although fetching you pickles and ice cream at two in the morning doesn't sound like much fun.
Quantum Catz: BM: Pickles with my precious ice-cream...i hope i never want that
YarnKittymon: TY: Well, *my* mom wanted *mustard* with her ice cream once. That's not any better, is it?
Quantum Catz: BM: Well right now, all it sounds like to me is hormones ruining prefectly good ice-cream - i guess i could change my mind later though
YarnKittymon: TY: Well, it's up to you to decide what you want to eat. And I promise I won't make fun of it. At least, not 'til well after we have our baby.
Quantum Catz: BM: ::just sort of stops and turns to smile at him:: Wow. Our baby. We're actually going to have a baby. It didn't really seem quite so real when it was just a thought spinning through my head
YarnKittymon: TY: ::grins, then leans forward and kisses Becky again::
Quantum Catz: BM: ::smiles weakly:: Alright then, on to the doctor, i guess
YarnKittymon: TY: ::takes Becky's hand proudly and leads the way::
