Amy looked over at her husband who was sitting in her lab snacking on the food he brought for her while he watched her work. Sheldon didn’t mind watching her work for a while. He always thought she was cute in her lab coat, and seeing that sweater covered baby bump sticking out of it just put her on the next level. Though he knew she needed to sit and eat this thoughtfully researched and prepared meal.
“You need to rest more,” he demanded.
“You aren’t my doctor, and I want to get this finished before I stop to eat,” Amy snapped. She never knew if it was her pregnancy hormones that made her frustrated by Sheldon’s behavior or if it was just his tendency to be overbearing and annoying. Ether way, her day would be a lot easier if he would just go back to his office for a while.
Sheldon just shook his head and took another bite out of the carrot he was snacking on. It was hard for him to stay away from Amy for long when she was carrying his child. He was well aware that he was driving her up the wall by checking in a few times a day, but he always felt better when he knew how she was. Since it was just a walk across campus to visit her, he often found it hard to resist visiting her. So, here he was, watching as she lovingly prepared samples of brain tissue to inspect under her microscope.
That was until she set down the slide and put her hand to her belly and grimaced. Sheldon was up and to her in seconds. He was guiding her to a stool to sit down.
“It’s fine. She’s just kicking,” Amy assured him as she rubbed the spot that had been abused by her daughter. This would only spur him on to hang around her lab more, so she wanted to make sure he knew everything was fine.
“She’s kicking?” Sheldon asked in wonder. It was at that moment that Amy realized that Sheldon had never felt their child’s little kicks. She was used to the little movements that had felt more like popcorn popping than actual kicks, but over the last couple days her little girl had taken to real kicks. They just happened at work or after Sheldon was already asleep. It wasn’t like she was keeping it from him. She took his hand and put it on her belly right where their daughter was kicking her still.
“Wow,” Sheldon muttered. His eyes went wide as he left his hand there and felt the tiny movements under it. They stopped after a moment, and when Amy looked into his eyes they were shiny with tears. He got on his knees in front of Amy to speak right to their child.
“Hello,” he said clearly. “It’s me. It’s Daddy. I can’t wait to meet you.”
