I was rereading Bella's transformation chapter again, and I was reminded of something that struck me as odd.
The first time Carlisle comes to check on Bella, Edward responds to something he thought. Then Edward says "I don't know. I'd love to flog them both."
I'm guessing that one of them is Jacob, due to his imprinting on Renesmee. I'm wondering who the other one is, though- Rosalie, perhaps? For being overprotective?
He also talks about not knowing which side to choose, and that Bella will probably surprise him with her choice. Not 100% sure what he's talking about there, either- though I'm guessing it's again related to Renesmee and the previous comment.

This book could've and should've been ENTIRELY about Bella as a thirsty, struggling, regretful newborn vampire! Imagine all the amazing descriptions of the transformation and her new senses would be main points in the story (as they should be), not just quick mentions. If Bella would've struggled as a newborn, she would have to depend on Edward to help her stay good- giving him a bigger role in the book. She was supposed to be emotional as a vampire. This was all foreshadowed and would've been a much better story. If it was devoted to how Bella is now paying her price for immortality and love, instead of "look how amazing my baby is!", it would be the BEST BOOK!!!
In my opinion, it was SM's intent all along to make Bella's "adjustment" to being a vampire pretty easy. The reason I believe that is, I think it was Bella's destiny to be a vampire. In fact, I stated this in a post over a month ago, I believe that Bella was born to, not only BE a vampire, but to be with Edward eternally. In fact, I said I believe she was BORN a vampire, she just wasn't immortal yet.
-She's pale naturally (even in AZ);
-She never fit in with any human groups;
-She immediately felt comfortable around the vampires in her life;
-She wasn't shocked by anything Edward told her about his lifestyle, in fact it all made perfect sense to her from the get-go.
I LOVED the fact that she had no trouble whatsoever adjusting to it!
And she was protecting Edward when she refused to show how painful her transformation was after the morphine wore off and she was able to move. She knew he was already in pain about her wanting to give up her human life for him (of course, it became necessary in HIS mind with Renesmee--but before that), she didn't want him to hurt more knowing that she was in severe pain. That was amazing!!
