My question is, if he didn't unconsciously have those feelings for Nessie before her birth, then why did those feelings go away as soon as Nessie was out of Bella?
And remember, Jacob didn't see Nessie for the first time until he got downstairs, but he had lost feelings for Bella as soon as Nessie was born. If he had to see her to imprint, then he shouldn't have lost his feelings for Bella until he saw Nessie downstairs.
Does that make any sense?
The period between Nessie's birth and when Jake saw her for the first time, he never lost his feelings for Bella. He was in a state of shock. The girl he loved was dead and all that was left of her was a mangled corpse. He walked down in a shocked state and as he got closer to Nessie, his desire to kill her grew more and more till he finally saw her and then it turned into love. In all, before he set eyes on Nessie, he was walking down the stairs towards her due to a combination of shock that the girl he loves was nothing more that a mangled corpse and hatred and a desire to kill the thing that caused her supposed death (Nessie). Jacob always had feelings for Bella till he saw Nessie.
