The entire pregnancy was a huge shock to me. I never thought that would happen. I didn't think it was going to be so terrible either. I thought Breaking Dawn was going to be a long conflict with the Volturri, Edward and Bella having problems about the wedding, etc. Never thought Nessie was going to come into the picture. I didn't feel that it was necessary for Stephenie Meyer to add so many details to the bloody birth scene. I would've rather had the detail in other areas, like the wedding, which I thought could've been drawn out more. Bella drinking human blood as a human also grossed me out a bit. If this is a movie...well, eww. The birth was really graphic, and I don't actually want to see it come to life. I think Renesmee is great now. I didn't like her originally since, she was breaking Bella apart. She's really unique though. It didn't seem to me like Edward cared for her as much as Bella, Jacob, or Rosalie. However, Stephenie said that when you're a newborn vampire you tend to be more self centered at first, so maybe that's why there wasn't as much about Edward and Nessie.
