Breaking Dawn, page 296:
"Also funny how, even knowing that it was almost over, the hold she had on me only got harder to break - as if by getting bigger, she was gaining gravitational force.
For a minute I tried to look at her from a distance, to separate myself from the pull. I knew it wasn't my imagination that my need for her was stronger than ever. Why was that?"
and later: page 355:
"But there was nothing there, just me, just him.
Working over a corpse.
Because that's all that was left of the girl we both loved. This broken, bled-out, mangled corpse. We couldn't put Bella together again.
I knew it was too late. I knew she was dead. it knew it for sure because the pull was gone. I didn't feel any reason to be here beside her. She wasn't here anymore. So this body had no more draw for me. The senseless need to be near her had vanished.
Or maybe moved was the better word. It seemed like I felt the pull from the opposite direction now. From down the stairs, out the door. The long to get away from here and never, ever come back."
Based on both the above quotes, I see the pull being Jake's wolfy subconscious awareness of Renesmee's presence. As her presence grows as a being with the growth of her body, so does the pull Jake has for her that he doesn't yet realize what it is. He keeps attributing it to other things. Do I also think that Jake absolutely had real feelings for Bella long before Renesmee? Yes.
Now, after Bella "dies" he initially seems to think it's gone. BUT he then realizes that it's simply moved out the door and down the stairs. Now, he doesn't realize that that's where Renesmee is, so he just thinks he's needing to run away.
