She entered the ward, holding Des' hand as they took a seat in the empty waiting room. "Luckily I'm not worried. Miscarriages are rare in my family and I've seen two pregnancies and deliveries before."

"I'm Hope Finch, and I'll be taking care of you today. Why don't you follow me back to the room?" She led Nikki and Desmond into a more private examination room, and gestured to the seats next to her desk as she sat down. "So why don't you tell me what brings you in today?"

She sat down. "Well, lately I've been feeling out of sorts and having some morning sickness, so I think I may be expecting a child on the way shortly." Nikki explained.

She nodded, pulling out some papers. "What was the date of your last menstrual cycle?"

 – 15:19, June 25, 2015 (UTC)

She had to think about that question. "I think it was around early March. I've sort of forgotten to keep track."

At this point Des realized they were going to talk about specifics so he just sat down in a nearby chair and continued to observe

She nodded. "Besides nausea, what other sort of symptoms have you experienced? Any.. aversions to food? Soreness or tenderness in your breasts?"

 – 15:30, June 25, 2015 (UTC)

She nodded. "Well, it certainly sounds like you could be pregnant, Mrs. Maddox. But an ultrasound will tell us for sure," she said, gesturing over to the examination table. "If you wouldn't mind getting up, and exposing your stomach for me?"

-"The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost..."

 – 15:34, June 25, 2015 (UTC)

She stood and hoisted herself onto the table, exposing her stomach. "And Hope, just Nikki will do fine. My mother-in-law's Mrs Maddox." Nikki said with a grin.

 – 15:37, June 25, 2015 (UTC)

She nodded. "This might be a little cold," she said. She squirted some goo onto Nikki's stomach and moved her wand around in it, murmuring spells, looking at the Ultrasound screen.

"Hear that? That's your baby's heartbeat," she said with a smile, looking around for other indicators of how far along Nikki is.

 – 15:46, June 25, 2015 (UTC)

She nodded slowly. "Based on what I see here, you're about ten weeks along." She pulled her wand out of the goo, and cleaned up Nikki's stomach, looking at the two of them. "Did you only just now realize you were pregnant, Nikki?"

-"The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost..."

 – 23:43, June 25, 2015 (UTC)

She sat up, shaking her head. "Yes. My mother was the one who put together all of the signs that I had told her about and suggested the possibility that I may be pregnant. After all, she's carried three kids to full-term and knows what an expectant mother is usually like."

 – 23:45, June 25, 2015 (UTC)

She frowned slightly. "Then why did you wait so long before coming in?"

 – 00:11, June 26, 2015 (UTC)

Nikki looked ashamed, answering in a quiet tone. "I just forgot to make an appointment when I first felt these signs and didn't make one until earlier this week. Next time, it won't happen."

 – 00:30, June 26, 2015 (UTC)

She let out a breath, and invited Nikki to sit down in the chair next to her desk again. "So, as far as I can tell, you're due in early November-- around the twelfth. So... we need to start talking diet, and vitamins and things, since it seems you may have been neglecting care for the first quarter of your pregnancy."

Nikki Maddox
-"The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost..."

 – 06:07, June 26, 2015 (UTC)

She nodded. "What would you suggest for diet changes, Healer Finch? And before you ask, no I do not drink any alcohol, well haven't drunk any for several months now." With the news of her expectance, Nikki definitely had to start taking better care of herself.

 – 14:37, June 26, 2015 (UTC)

"Well, that's a good start," she said. "What does your diet typically consist of now? Do you eat a lot of... fish, yogurt.... dark, leafy greens?"


Untitled (9)

Nikki Maddox
-"The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost..."

 – 16:37, June 26, 2015 (UTC)

She nodded. "Yes to the greens and yogurt." Nikki had reached over to place a hand on Desmond's knee.

 – 16:39, June 26, 2015 (UTC)

"It's a good idea to avoid any raw fish, or fish in general, just in case it's undercooked. Keep up with the greens and vegetables." She paused. "Are you a coffee drinker?"

Nikki Maddox
-"The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost..."

 – 16:49, June 26, 2015 (UTC)

Nikki's eyes widened. "No. I only drink tea and avoid coffee at all times. I don't want another lecture from my uncle that all of us kids have to listen to about the dangers of drinking coffee." She rolled her eyes.

"Tea is okay," she said carefully. "But you should be avoiding caffeine. A little is okay-- a lot is not."

 – 17:01, June 26, 2015 (UTC)

She nodded, and reached over to grab a few pamphlets. "These are for you. One on each trimester-- though you're nearly through your first already. Two on parenting-- one for each of you-- and one on diet."

Nikki Maddox
-"The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost..."

 – 17:05, June 26, 2015 (UTC)

Nikki took each of the pamphlets, handing the second parenting one to Desmond. "What about vitamins and other things?"

 – 17:06, June 26, 2015 (UTC)

She nodded, and was writing a prescription as Nikki spoke. She handed it to her. "Prenatal vitamins are a good idea, to make sure you and your baby stay healthy," she said handing it to her. "You can get it filled at the front desk on your way out."
