If you know me, you know I’m a sucker for a baby fic. It may be cliche, but getting knocked up happens. I came across Unconventional on the Pregnant Bella and Dad-ward Community on FF.net. I usually don’t have luck when fic diving, but I think this was a good day. The author says it’s not the typical baby fic and I would have to agree.
I won’t spoil all the little bits in the beginning, but let’s just say that Bella gets knocked up from a one-night stand with Edward. The how it happened and the where it happened are explained in the first chapter. What makes this fic different is, when she does find him to tell him, they don’t immediately fall back into bed nor does he deny the possibility that the baby is his. He just knows it is because he knows what type of a person Bella is. They calmly discuss “What do we do now?” As time goes on, as things happen, Edward becomes a good friend to Bella. He makes me laugh because he falls completely in love with the baby. He has no problems walking up to her, pulling her shirt up and kissing her belly. Like here:
He didn’t say anything, but he took the hem of my shirt pushing it up inspecting my stomach. He leaned his face down placing a kiss above my belly button.
“Have you ever heard of personal space?” I hissed uncomfortable with his actions.
“Oh I have, but you need to understand that as this is my child too I can do that.”
Bella is a planner, so this whole pregnancy (and other things) have thrown her into a world of unknowns. Edward is really good at calming her and taking care of her. It was a total win for me when he punched Jacob in the face and broke his nose. I was sold after that. He’s a man, not a pussy. People, he shaves her legs when she can’t do it herself and this is what was said:
“Come on,” I said standing up with her.
“What?” she froze.
“You’re going to have a bath and I’m going to shave those legs,” I explain halfway up the stairs.
“Ew, you can’t.”
“Bella, this is kinda my fault you can’t shave,” I said sitting her on top of the toilet seat.
“Isabella,” she pouted as I reached over turning the faucet on and put the stopper in. I played with the faucets until I was satisfied with the water’s temperature. I threw in a lot of bubble bath because girls loved that shit. I then went back to Bella lifting up the hem of her shirt. Her small hands stopped me and I looked at her.
“This is not friend appropriate,” she huffed giving me a warning glare.
“This me taking care of my child’s mother appropriate,” I shrugged. “Now arms up.”
Bella doesn’t think they have anything in common. She thinks they are too different, but as time goes on she starts to change her mind and is open to the possibility of something more once the baby arrives.
There are the usual cast of characters, but this story really focuses on the Edward/Bella relationship, which I like. This story, so far, is low on angst while not completely fluffy. I have really enjoyed it and I hope you will too!
