If you haven’t read the book or seen the movie, I’m going to do some pretty major spoiling here. Just fair warning.
So, Bella’s pregnancy. Holy hell, people. After reading about broken ribs and spines, I was pretty freaked out at the whole idea of feeling a baby moving & kicking inside me some day. And those videos on youtube where you can actually see the baby moving? Not helpful.
I did have one moment, the first time I could feel the baby kick on the outside, where I thought, “Whoa. Don’t think about BREAKING DAWN. Don’t think about BREAKING DAWN.” Which of course immediately leads one to thinking about BREAKING DAWN. A few minutes later, he kicked me hard enough that I doubled over from the jolt of it. Because my son is already a punk with a dark sense of humor.
And in my book, that’s actually pretty awesome.
