Ive just kind of got that opinion from the start. Even after he could hear her thoughts. I mean dont get me wrong of course he does love her but I think he always has that anguish from when she nearly killed Bella.
I agree with you, twilightsagaaddict. Consider the following from Bella's point of view:
"Renesmee is healthy and well," he promised, a gleam I'd never seen before in his eyes. He said her name with an understated fervor. A reverence. The way devout people talked about their gods. (p. 396)
Bella: "Tell me about her." Edward: "She's like nothing else in the world," he told me, and the sound of an almost religious devotion was there again in his voice. (p. 428)
During the goodbye scene in the meadow when Edward understood that Jacob was going to have to run with Renesmee: "Edward's and Jacob's faces were almost identical masks of horror, despite the fact that one of them was an animal. Renesmee reached for Edward, and he took her into his arms. They hugged each other tightly. ... Edward kissed Renesmee's forehead and both her cheeks, then he lifted her to Jacob's shoulder. ... Edward leaned his head against the same shoulder where he'd placed Renesmee. 'Goodbye, Jacob, my brother ... my son.'" (p. 722-23)
Several times during the first couple of days of Bella's new life Edward reminded Bella that Renesmee was waiting for them. Several times Bella mentioned that Edward was holding Renesmee, protecting her.
I don't think Edward would harbor any ill feeling towards Renesmee in consequence of Bella being determined to carry her to term. Once Bella successfully made the transformation to vampire, Edward's fears concerning Bella's well-being ended (until the Volturi threat). All the sorrow he experienced during the pregnancy was water under the bridge. Bella was happy, so Edward was happy. He would have died to protect either of his girls.
I think Edward was a destined to be a wonderful father who was absolutely devoted to his daughter. I just feel sad that poor Renesmee couldn't hide her thoughts from her father! That will get awkward!
