You were sitting in the fresh Edmonton air, trying to enjoy the rare weekday lunch with your husband. It was not often you and Leon were able to go for lunch. Between his insane hockey schedule and your equally insane toddler, going out to eat was rarely an option.
You watched as something caught Leon’s eye. You followed his gaze to see him watching a woman walking down the sidewalk, her arms carrying bags from the neighboring baby boutique.
“I saw that.” You quipped as you were wrestling your fidgeting son.
“Huh” Leon looked at you confused, playing dumb.
“I saw you looking at her.” You replied.
“Babe, I really wasn’t…”
“Well, I saw the way you looked at her bump” you giggled.
“She looked as if she could be due any day, she was glowing.”
“Look at you swooning over pregnancy.” You chuckled once more placing a kiss on your son’s cheek.
“Let’s have another baby.” Leon suddenly responded.
“Have you lost your mind?” You looked at him puzzlingly.
“We make such cute babies, Y/N. And Misha is getting so big now, I want another little one. Plus, you were just so beautiful pregnant.”
“I definitely was not feeling beautiful Leon.” You laughed as Misha had finally succeeded at escaping from your grasp. He toddled around the table to his father who delightedly scooped him up.
“Seriously Y/N, I want to have more little babies with you.” He smiled as he pushed Misha’s hair from his eyes.
You watched your son and husband for a moment. You had to admit, you and Leon did make adorable babies.
“We’ll see Leon.”
Leon looked up and smiled at you. You could tell by his eyes he was already hatching a million and one plans to convince you.
A few weeks had passed and the baby making campaign was in full force. He had enlisted a few of the boys to help him try and brainwash you. He even tried to use Misha in his never-ending tirade. You could only roll your eyes when Misha stumbled into the kitchen wearing a shirt that read “Big Brother”
You were sitting at the kitchen counter, enjoying a bagel. Leon was still at practice and Misha was spending time with his grandparents. You were enjoying the silence but only for a moment. You couldn’t deny that you loved the slightly organized chaos that came with your rambunctious son. You adored the love and noise that came with having Misha in the house. He was so worth every morning spent clutching the toilet and the sleepless nights being unable to get comfortable. Maybe it would be worth it again for another little Leon following around his older brother.
You were pulled from your thoughts hearing the door open and close.
“Y/N? You home my love?” you heard Leon call from the front room.
“Kitchen” you responded as you continued to enjoy your bagel.
You felt his strong arms wrap around you and a quick kiss to your temple. He then turned to the fridge to grab food for himself. “Misha still with my parents?”
“Mhmm” you nodded. He smirked at you drinking one of his post-practice shakes.
“I didn’t take my birth control this morning.” You stated simply taking another bite of your bagel.
You enjoyed watching Leon almost sputter out his shake, his eyes widening.
“You mean you want to try?
“I mean you make a hard case” you smile and suddenly you were being swept from your stool.
“Hey! What about my bagel?” you giggled as Leon ran up the stairs with you in his arms.
“Bagel… Later…. Baby…. Now.” He responded between placing kisses to your lips.
You walked into the bathroom with a groan. Leon glanced at you from the sink.
“We just started trying babe.” He said reading your mind
You just nodded, you couldn’t help feeling deflated
“Plus that just means we get to keep trying” He wiggled his eyebrows at you.
You chuckled as you went to start getting Misha ready for the day.
Your days were filled with trying for baby number two when you could fit it in between toddler naps and hockey games. Each time came with no success, and it was weighing you down. You had no issues when you decided to have Misha. You had begun to track your ovulation and were trying foods you read helped with conception.
And now here you were after your last run of baby making, laying on the bed both feet in the air against the headboard, reading another article on yoga positions to help fertility.
Leon walked into the room from taking his shower, he looked at you as if you were insane. “What are you doing now?”
“I’m lifting my hips to try and coax your little Leon’s to my uterus.”
He huffed as cleaned up his suit that was strewed across the room.
“What’s wrong with you?” you asked
“Dammit Y/N, this isn’t fun anymore.” He shouts obviously frustrated.
“What’s not going to be fun is if you wake up your son.”
“I can’t do this anymore.” He says quieter but no less angry.
“Do what? Have another baby?” you question.
“I want nothing more than another baby with you but not on some crazy obulation schedule that you basically have posted on the fridge.”
“It’s Ovulation Hun.”
“I don’t care what the damn word is! And can you please get out of the stupid position! I’m trying to have a conversation with you!”
You turn to get down and sit up just as Misha wails from his bedroom. You sigh as you head for the door. “I’m going to go try and get our son back to sleep.” You scoff.
You heard a loud thump and shatter as you walked down the hallway.
After a tiring hour of pacing the room with a crying toddler on your hip, you finally had gotten Misha back to sleep.
You walked back into the bedroom and Leon was in bed watching game highlights on a sports channel. “Is he back asleep?” he asked, eyes not leaving the TV.
You crawl into bed and sit on your knees next to him. He steals a quick glance at you but continues to watch the TV still pouting. You finally just speak up.
“I just feel like I have failed you. We keep trying to have a baby and it is just not happening. I have been so obsessed with trying to make this work that I didn’t realize how you were feeling. I’m so sorry Leon, I just want to give you another baby so badly.”
Leon quickly sat up to face you, wiping the tears from your cheeks
“Babe you are not failing me in the least. I know we didn’t struggle with Misha but it will happen. I just want you to stop putting so much pressure on this. You are stressing about this when we should just enjoy the time we have with just Misha and the process of making more little babies with your very handsome husband.”
You chuckle at the last part and share a kiss with said handsome husband. You spent the rest of the evening purposefully asking questions you knew the answers to about his game highlights.
You were sitting in the backyard with Kelly Talbot. You watched as the twins chased your clumsy toddler around with their dogs.
“How’s trying to expand your roster going? Cam told me that Leon couldn’t stop talking about it.” Kelly asked sipping her mimosa. You were having your ritual of getting brunch with your fellow Oiler mommy while the boys were on road trips.
“We’ve been trying but no luck. It caused a bit of a rough spot but we got past it. We are just going with the flow for now. It will happen when it happens.”
You smile as you reached for the first sip of your mimosa. As soon as the smell got in range of your nose, you could feel your breakfast making its way back up your throat. You leaned over the trash can and lost the contents of your stomach.
“Maybe Happen is soon then later” Kelly snickers rubbing your back.
You looked at her as you wiped your mouth. “Pharmacy Run?”
“Let’s get the kids in the car!” she smiles with a snap of fingers
5 pregnancy tests later, you were definitely pregnant. You were beyond thrilled. The first thing you wanted to do was tell Leon. You reached for your phone but decided against it. Leon had figured out you were pregnant with Misha before you could surprise him with some cute announcement. You started to put the plan in motion.
Leon was due any moment now and you were waiting in the living room, trying to look as causal and nonsuspicious as you could. You continued to check on Misha making sure everything was in place.
You heard the garage door opening and you couldn’t help but squeal in excitement. You composed yourself and headed to the door to greet him.
“Hey Babe” he smiled as he walked in the door putting his bag down and giving you a quick kiss. “I missed you.”
“I missed you too and so did a certain little one.” You smirked at your own hidden meaning.
“You currently have a very impatient toddler who demanded a bedtime story from his papa waiting upstairs for you.”
“Well Let’s not keep him waiting any longer.” Leon smiled heading up the stairs. You followed close behind.
Leon opened the door to Misha’s room to find him sitting in his bed trying to read a story.
“What’s on the menu tonight little man?” he questioned taking the book from your giggling toddler.
Leon read the title and almost fell over. What to Do When Mommy is Having a Baby.
He whipped around to you. “Are you..”
“I’m thinking we go for a goalie this time around, expand our roster.”
Leon swept you up and spun you around, much to Misha’s delight. He placed a kiss to your lips as he sat you down.
“No goalies, maybe a right winger.” He smiled and you couldn’t have been happier.
