I am constantly looking at these movies from the perspective of someone that has not read the books. As my husband and boys will be seeing them. So I can see that what your saying...but I think all the "action" happens after that. Bella's spine snaps before the baby is out. That's sort of the last straw so to speak...Jacob thinks something like "All the king's horses, and all the king's men..." I think that MR sort of mentioned there being a natural break in there...pre-transformation. I think one of the previous posts I read was that it would be cool to end with Jacob leaving..."Turning away, leaving him with his dead..." Being angry at himself for putting himself through all this for nothing. Then seeing Nessie for the first time...hearing her heartbeat and possibly hearing Bella's in the background with Edward asking Carlisle what he did wrong and the utter devistation in his voice.
The 2nd movie could pick up where Bella's story begins having her narrate her tranformation while we get to see the subtle changes...
Just my thoughts...with them making two movies, maybe they will have time to put in quite a few of the scenes we want.
