Warnings: cursing, tl;dr
Domino sighed as they entered Henry's lab again. Her body ached, and she looked like she was in the beginning of her third trimester, instead of her second. Everything ached, and she was getting upset frequently because of it.
Cable walked at her side, smiling as he touched her and gently sent soothing energy into her.
"Welcome. Please sit, be comfortable."
He gestured Domino to the bed and Cable to the chair next to it.
"How are both of you?"
Domino settled onto the bed, sitting up because laying on her back was uncomfortable. "I'm really not feeling good. I feel drained and angry a lot of the time. These fuckers are heavy." Her voice was a little sullen. "I feel. . . kind of overstretched, maybe? I have stretchmarks on my stretchmarks."
"I can do some tests, but that is mostly normal. And I can help."
He held up a small bottle.
"Your body is being drained of resources. This will help you produce more of what you need, and do so without harming your children. It is a regimen of vitamins and herbs that must be taken every day."
He gently waved at her belly.
"Firsy I'd like to check the feel of the positioning, then use the scanner."
"Okay. You can feel me up if you really want to. I nearly sprained a woman's wrist when she surprised me at the supermarket trying to touch my stomach."
For a moment, the irritation faded. "I can feel them moving now. It's pretty cool."
Henry smiled and his hands were strong and gentle as he touched her belly, feeling the placement of the children through her skin and muscles, his eyes closed for a moment, head cocked. Then he nodded as he pulled his hands back.
"They feel in very good position. If you will sit back against the pillow cushion, I will prepare the monitor."
He turned to do so as Cable smiled and moved to help Domino.
Domino didn't need the help that much, but she used it anyway. His presence made her feel more relaxed, and she needed that desperately.
"Do you think that the girl's size will make the pregnancy harder?"
"It will make it more tiring, and the delivery will be a lot harder..."
He bit his lip as he manuvered the machine close.
"I am beginning to think you might want to investigate having a C-Section. The girl's size and development will only grow as she does. And I want you both as safe as possible."
He nodded to them and came forward to set the scanner at her belly.
"Yeah. Probably. I don't need a broken pelivs. Will that inhibit my ability to have children later?" Despite the fact that this pregnancy was such a bitch, she wanted to have more kids.
The machine she eyed a bit, but it wasn't terrifying. "What kind of diet should I be on?"
"No. If properly done, a C-Section does not inhibit a future pregnancy or delivery at all. And you have several very good psychic surgeons at hand as well as myself."
The machine began to hum as it started scanning.
He spoke quietly on her diet, giving her several suggestions.
She was quiet as he scanned her, hoping everything was okay. "How much longer will they be growing like this? HOw big am I going to get? I'm having problems doing everyday things, now."
He nodded as he finished and a holographic representation of the kids popped up into the air.
"They are healthy and you are... they should stabilize, but I am afraid they will keep growing, if a lot slower now."
He paused and eyed her.
"You might consider using a wheelchair as pregnancy advances. However, they will not grow much faster now, nor much larger. IF they do... then we will need to start considering early removal."
He raised a hand.
"Do not worry right now. They are on track to slow down, and to take on a more normal profile, even if they are over large. But if we need to, the idea should be one in your mind. I will not let either you or your children suffer, Domino, Nate."
He nodded, confidence in his tone and his gaze.
Domino shivered, but nodded, looking at the children. "It's incredible how much bigger than him she is." She couldn't wait to hold them. They would be beautiful. "Will this, um, make sex not viable?" She'd read about the risks, and made a note to ask Hank during their next visit.
"Sex it out of the picture for the rest of teh pregnancy, I am afraid. But... when it is done, and if the C-Section goes as planned, if planned well... then you will be able to have sex again as soon as you are healed."
There was a moment of silence. "Fuck."
No more sex? She was going to kill someone, if that was the case. "There's. . . just none?"
Henry eyed Cable and they shared mental communication for a moment.
"No physical sex, no, I think, however, you will find that Nathan is able to give yuo as much sex as you can handle, for the duration... mentally."
Cable blushed and nodded,.
Domino blushed brightly. "Oh. That might be alright, then."
New topic now, please. "Is there anything I can do to be more comfortable on my feet?"
"Swim. Build up the muscles in your back, legs and feet by doign exercises with Nathan or others while swimming. And make no swift movements until you are used to it."
She nodded, and made a mental note. "Thank you, Dr. McCoy." They had an indoor pool in their new place. It would be fun to play in there. And it would take the pressure off her body. She wondered why she hadn't thought of it.
He smiled at her.
"It is my pleasure. Take the vitamins, and sleep a lot, and exercise. And I will see you in two weeks."
"Thank you, Dr. McCoy."
She sat up and slid off the table, wiping her stomach off. "See you in two weeks."
Henry's smile was jovial.
"See you then, Domino, Nathan. Be safe."
