1. (For those that have already had children): Before you had children, what were your thoughts and feelings about child bearing? How are these thoughts similar and different to Bella’s thoughts? Did those change when you learned you were pregnant like they did for Bella?
2. (For those who have not had children): If you were in a committed relationship with someone nearly as perfect as Edward, how would you react to an unexpected pregnancy?
I would be excited, joyful, relieved, expectant and probably hungry! LOL
3. Was the pregnancy as unexpected for you as it was for Bella and Edward?
Yes, even though the vampires in Twilight were not "traditional" vampires, you can't help but have misconceptions of the being itself.
But, I'm glad Stephanie added this, it kinda made sense because Edward wanted that for Bella, it was the ast thing he thought he couldn't give her.
4. Both Bella and Edward act fiercely to protect the ones they love. Do you think it is right for Bella to protect her baby before considering Edward’s needs?
Oh of course!! It was a part of her and Edward, I knew she would do anything to save the baby, it was her little nudger!
I'm sure she took into consideration that Edward was only thinking of her safety, but she considered it probably for a fleeting second. Her maternal instincts were already in her, hence the dreams she was having, protecting her child.
After all it was made with LOVE and with Edward.
