How do I tell him without freaking him out? I wondered. This was big, I mean really
big. Bigger than us moving in together. Bigger than him asking me to marry him. Bigger than anything that's happened to us.
I am pregnant. Yes, I, Spencer Mewes am pregnant. And I'm also very terrified to tell my husband Nikolas Mewes.
Nik and I have been married for four years. Been living together for six years and had been dating for ten. We're completely in love with eachother. Life was great. And now I'm pregnant.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not upset that I'm pregnant and I don't think Nik will be upset either, it's just surprising, I guess. We weren't trying to have a kid, we just wanted it to happen when it happened. And now it's happening, and I'm scared.
"Spencer, are you home?" Nik's voice rang throughout the flat.
"Yeah, babe, I'm in the kitchen." I called to him. I was trying to figure out what to eat. With being pregnant that's not really hard since I want to eat virtually everything in sight.
I felt arms wrap around my waist from behind. "Wat'cha doin'?" Nik asked as he kissed my cheek.
"Looking for something to eat." I said, wondering if I should tell him now.
"Well we can look together, because I'm starving too." He said.
I smiled. I loved him so much. Even doing simple things like looking for something to eat together was amazing. My life would truly be nothing without him. I needed him. And I just knew he was going to be a great father too.
Nik and I decided on some treacle tart. We sat down on our living room couch and ate.
"How was work?" I asked.
"Pretty good actually. I'm whipping the boys into shape." Nik was now the captain of the Tutshill Tornadoes along with being the Chaser.
"Should we be worried?" I asked teasingly. I was the manager and publisist for the Falmouth Falcons, the most trouble making team in the league. As much trouble as they caused, they were crazy talented and had won the Quidditch World Cup twice in the last five years I had been working with them.
I wonder how the team would react to me being pregnant. I would definitely have to take some time off eventually. That means I'd need someone to take over in my absense. I'll ask my best friend Pansy Malfoy (used to be Parkinson before her marriage to Draco Malfoy three years ago) to fill in. She's tough and can keep the boys in line.
"Yeah, you guys should be worried. We're out to win it all this year." Nik grinned.
"Well, then, I wish you the best of luck." I said.
"Thanks, but we don't need it." He joked.
"Someone's cocky." I smirked slightly.
"Not cocky, just confident." He winked at me. I laughed in response. "How was work for you?"
"Surprisingly good." I answered. "I only yelled at the boys seven times and I only hit Vince four times."
"Hey, that's an improvement." Nik said.
"Yeah, probably only temporary though." I shrugged. "You know how good habits never stick with them."
"Yeah." Nik said. "So are we still going to Leanne and Jeff's tonight?"
"As far as I know, yes. I just couldn't wait that long to eat. I'm starving."
"What's new?" Nik joked.
I cocked an eyebrow. "What's that supposed to mean?" I asked.
"Just that lately you seem to always be starving is all I'm saying. And you eat weird things too."
was the first thought that came to my mind. He knows I'm pregnant and he's gonna get mad because I haven't told him. Yet.
I've known I was pregnant for the last three weeks and I've been trying to find the right time and place to tell Nik, but everytime I try it feels wrong.
And I'm practically waiting for him to figure it out on his own and get really mad at me for not telling him sooner. He's clearly noticed changes in my behavior.
"I do not eat weird things." I said.
"Um, yeah, babe, you do. But whatever, it's just some weird phase you're going through, I guess." He said.
Okay, maybe he's not as smart as I thought he was. I thought he would have figured it out by now, but apparently not. To be completely honest, I want him to figure it out so I don't have to tell him myself, but it's looking like I'll have to tell him. And I'm telling him tonight...
Nik and I walked into Leanne and Jeff's and I was immediately hit with beautiful aroma of grilled chicken. "Mmm." I said sniffing the air. "It smell delicious in here."
Nik gave me a funny look. "Yeah, I guess it does. I don't really smell it that much."
"Oh." I said. "Guess it's just me then." Now I knew I had to tell him tonight because he could tell I was acting strange.
Dinner was incredible. Everything tasted so good, I had about three helpings of everything. Everyone stared at me as though I was insane and Nik explained that I was going through a "phase". Little did he know this "phase" is a nine month "phase".
Then dessert was brought out and I had two slices of cake, one slice of pie and four cookies. Definitely got some weird stares after that.
"Do you want to eat anything else Spencer? We have a whole refrigerator full of food." Jeff laughed.
"Shut up, I barely ate at all today." I snapped.
"Why don't I believe that at all?" Ana asked.
I shrugged as I took another bite of a cookie. Pansy gave me a strange look but then seemed to forget about it when Draco kissed her cheek and whispered something in her ear that made her smile.
They're so cute. Almost as cute and Nik and me. Almost.
"Well, if Spencer is done eating, lets get to the good stuff now." Ana's boyfriend, Lance said as he popped the cork off of a bottle of wine. My favorite bottle of wine to be exact. I got excited and then I remembered I was pregnant and drinking was not okay.
"Oh, Spencer, that's the same wine we had at our wedding." Nik said smiling.
I forced a smile. "Yes, it is." I said.
Lance started pouring everyone's glass. When he got to me I shook my head virgorously. "Um, I won't be having any wine." I said.
"Are you joking?" He asked. "You love this wine."
"I know, I'm just...I can't drink it." I mumbled.
"Come on, Spence, this our wine, you can have a little." Nik insisted.
"No, Nik, I can't." I said firmly.
"Why the hell not? What's going on with you?!" Nik demanded.
"I just can't drink the damn wine!" I yelled as I stood up abruptly and left the room. I heard footsteps right behind me.
Nik grabbed my arm and spun me around. "What the hell was that about? Why are you acting like this? I'm starting to think this isn't a phase anymore."
"It was never a phase to begin with, Nik, you're so thick." I said.
"Then what is it?! What am I missing here Spencer?! Tell me!" He practically shouted.
At least I get to say something shocking this time...
Hi! Spencer and Nik are baaack! So what did you think? How will Nik react to the news? :)
