And Nessie's (poor Nessarose!) birth... When I first heard that Bella becomes pregnant, my only hope was that there would be complications and that both she and the baby would die. Renesmee survives, so there went THAT idea, but I had such high hopes for Bella--and then Eddiekins bit her.

Darn.



I have a question... if you hated the characters so much, and wanted them all to die, and think the author is lazy, WHY READ THE BOOK?
I'm confused, it just seems like you're expending way too much effort over something you don't like.

Ok, I mean no disrespect but I am sitting here laughing hysterically at this board :lol:
Magic, remember! I know that Vampires can be very technically explained in the book, not to exact science but this is when kismet interferes and introduces to us all a new perspective in the wake of Bella giving up mortality and risking all for this life that is now inside of her ( a metaphor of unknown hope and a new kind of mercy we've not seen presented before)

If you had've told me before reading Breaking Dawn, I would have scoffed at you, but not while reading Breaking Dawn.

I didn't think of it for awhile, but I figured it out before the characters did though. I kinda figured it out, because I was like, she's got to be half human, half vamp, that's the normal development of a child: half mother's genes, half father's genes.


i was totally trying to figure out how Edward could make sperm or i guess make it available enough to get Bella pregnant and i have to agree with your explaination i had never thought of that that makes so much more sense... and once Belle was pregnant i have to say i was getting upset that no one had thought to give the baby blood before she was almost dying cuz i had thought of it when i had first read that she was pregnant

I agree with Sparker. This whole discussion board is hillarious! but at the same time... i totaly want to post on it!

-as per the general topic of discussion and why bella would keep a baby that's killing her...
women do it every day, all over the world, because the love they feel for the baby is more than the love they have for themselves. it's part of being a maternal being...you act absolutely maternal (read: CRAZY!)

-and I can't remember who it was that said it, but it was brilliant...
humans, and all life on this planet for that matter, are really just trying to reproduce. it's millions of years of evolution. As a Nativist myself, i totaly agree with the arguement that the genes were trying to surive.

-maybe the reason the pregnancy was so short is because that's the gestation period for a 1/2 and 1/2 SM told us in BD that vampires, humans, werewolves, and 1/2 and 1/2s all have a differnt number for genes...that means they are VERY different species and their reproductive cycles would be different too. no?

I imagine she could (whether or not she would have tears is questionable), but most babies cry because they are trying to communicate something they need, and Nessie doesn't have to do that. So... I think it's probably possible, but she probably doesn't ever really have to, therefore doesn't. Does that make sense?

I could have sworn she did cry once though when Bella was saying goodbye. I could just be mistaking Nessie for me though... lol :D

Anyways, my thoughts on Bella having the baby is why? why would she put her one true love through so much pain?? I could never do that, because the look on Edwards face would be heartbreaking, would it not? And to put the rest of the family in so much pain too, that's pretty bad. I understand it's for a child and more importantly Edward and her's but all the pain and worry would be too much if i was her. but hey! that's just me :)


I actually just read in Breaking Dawn the other day that Bella experienced "crying" as a vampire for the first time and then she looked down at Renesmee who she was holding and she was crying real tears and then Bella kissed them away -- can't remember a page number, but I know it's in there!! Probably when Renesmee was a couple months old?? Just guessing. But yes, she can cry!

This might just be me, but since when does Bella want to be a mother so much?
I mean, she wasn't too red hot on being a wife, but then she's all motherly.
I don't get it.
Oh well.

You're right, the wanting to be a mother thing kinda came out of nowhere -- but I swear that there's some internal Bella dialoge that talks about this. She talks about how she doesn't know she wants something until she has it (something to that effect) -- hmmm . . . makes me want to go back and read Breaking Dawn again!! :P

I don't think that wanting to be a mother ever really came to Bella, in that it wasn't a planned pregnancy or that she wouldn't be with Edward because they thought that he couldn't give her a child. It was more that once she found out she was pregnant, she couldn't bear to think of her baby dead, not existing and with that came the responsibility of motherhood. So wanting to be a mother and wanting your baby to live is different to me. A lot of girls give up their baby for adoption because they don't want to be a mother at that particular time (perhaps because of their age) but couldn't kill their baby. So, sort of different but in very closly tied.
