"Okay." He agreed slightly stressed out about the idea. He didn;t want Sammie to be running around chasing kids while she was pregnant. "But I want you to know that you don't have to." He said taking a deep breath and resigning himself to the idea. "And will you please consider only working part time?" He asked looking into her eyes. "For me."

Cole wasn't sure the life he wanted was the life Sammie wanted but he didn't care about anything serious right now. They were only dating and he couldn't ask Sammie to give up so much for that. He dropped it and decided he'd let her do whatever she wanted.

Sammie could tell that Cole was stressed out and she rolled over a little closer to him and kissed him softly. "I will only work a few days a week, two or three at the most and I promise if things become too much with the pregnancy and working then I will quit" She said as she kissed him again trying to get him to at least smile about the idea. Sammie wanted Cole to be alright with this. Yes it was her life, but the life that was now inside her stomach was just as much his as it was hers. She would never dream of doing anything that would hurt their child and she was taking this seriously. Sammie would also do anything for Cole if it really meant that much to him, yet he needed to listen to her too.

The troubles of what her life was turning out like were still in the back of her mind as she kissed him but Sammie decided it was best to keep that to herself. She didn't want to upset Cole and she needed to know how she felt about it all first since at the moment she was very confused. Maybe when the baby came she would be more than happy to spend every day at home with the child, but that was something time would only tell.

As she kissed him Cole let the corners of his mouth form into a small smile and leaned down kissing her back. "Alright. Then I guess it's okay." He said wrapping his arms around her a bit tighter as she moved in closer. "I just want you to know that I care about you and I am here for you. You don't have to work. I can take care of things Sammie." He said as he curled up with her.

He closed his eyes softly as he talked, "Did your mom work? You know while your dad was stationed and what not?" He asked her, then paused to wait for her answer. "And speaking of your mom.. I think we should have her for a visit soon." He said unsure how Sammie would react.

As she felt the corners of his lips turn into a smile it made her smile as well. The last thing she had wanted to do by bringing up her working was to upset Cole. Yet they had seemed to work that out well, both of them compromising since if Sammie had her way then she would have been working five days a week. It really made Sammie believe that they would be able to raise a child together if all of their decission making went that way. She cuddled up with him as he spoke about taking care of thingss. "I know you can" Sammie whispered to him, kissing his neck softly as she relaxed and her eyes closed.

"No she didn't work" Sammie responded when Cole asked if her mother had worked. Her mother now had nothing. What Sammie wasn't about to tell Cole was that although her mother got a widow pension from the government and got a pay out on her fathers death, her mother now had nothing. She had no skills to go out and get a job because all she had done her whole adult life was follow her husband around as he worked. Sammie didn't want to end up like that.

At the mention of her mother coming for a visit Sammie smiled. "Yeah, I can invite her. Maybe next week? I am not sure how she will like being on base but I am sure it will be fine" Sammie mumbled. Despite being tired she was excited about the idea of seeing her mother. After all she had no family or friends here (well except Jenna but that was new) so it would be nice to have a touch of home.

Cole nodded, "Alright, next week sounds great." He smiled excited about the idea of meeting her mother, though unsure whether she would approve of Cole. After all he did take her daughter away from her and brought her into a life that could essentially hurt her. He had no intentions of doing that and swore that he would do everything in his power to take care of Sammie and their child and he wanted to be able to reassure her mother of that.

"If she really wants I can get her a hotel room, though it's not too close to base for one." He said wanting her to be comfortable. "I can't imagine how she'll feel being on base. Maybe you can give her the option." He said softly.

Sammie was nervous about her mother meeting Cole. She hadn't been very impressed with him so far and that was even before she knew that Sammie was pregnant. It hadn't been something that Sammie had wanted to talk to her mother about over the phone so she had been waiting for a chance to invite her mother up to meet Cole and she would tell her then. She just really wanted Cole and her mother to get along, since both of them were important in her life. Especially with a baby on it's way.

"I will talk to her about it. I am sure on base will be okay. And there is no way you are paying to put my mother up in a hotel. I have all this money from my houe sale that I need to spend on something" Sammie teased, yawning softly as she kissed Cole once more. "I need sleep" She muttered, curling up a little more as she felt her body relaxing and beginning to drift off. It had been a very big day and a big night as well.

"Well then sleep silly." He smiled as he rubbed her back softly as she fell asleep. He too slowly drifted off, the day having been long and tiring for him as well, but he found it enjoyable. When he had been deployed he'd never imagine to coming back to something so great. He had just about fallen right into a decent life and he wasn't going to do anything to let that slip away.

The next morning his alarm went off and he groaned slightly waking up and heading for the shower. He got dressed quickly knowing he was running a little late. Sammie looked so peaceful sleeping he let her sleep and left her a note before heading to work for the day. He called her on his lunch break from work and made sure she was alright.

Sammie managed a small laugh but was quickly sound asleep with his hand rubbing her back gently. It was soothing and something that she would never get enough of. Just falling asleep next to him and in his arms was perfect. The next morning Maci didn't even hear the alarm going off and instead slept all the way through until around ten am. It was then that she got up out of bed and was forced to race to the bathroom. Sammie felt extremely sick and soon had her head in the toilet bowl. She had never been that sick before in her life. Clutching her stomach Sammie just headed downstairs to the couch with a blanket and a pillow to curl up for a little while. She spotted the note from Cole as she left the bedroom and smiled.

After a little while and only two more trips to the bathroom to be sick, Sammie decided to call one of the doctors in town which Jenna had suggested to get an appointment. Luckily she was able to get one for tomorrow so she booked it. Now all that was needed was for Cole to be able to go with her. Sammie hoped that he wasn't working or could get the time off.

When the phone rang around lunch time she answered it, expecting for it to be Cole since no one else rang. "Hello?" She said with a smile.

Cole spoke with her for a few minutes while he was on break letting her know that he could switch his shift for tomorrow so that they could go to the doctors together. He asked if she wanted him to bring anything but she denied. He promised he'd be home before she knew it and he couldn't wait to eat the dinner she promised she'd make. "If you don't feel well enough call me and I'll bring something home." He said hanging up quickly as his boss came in and started talking to him.

He finished up the day and headed home, grabbing some flowers on the way. As he walked inside he dropped his things by the door and called out for Sammie as he headed into the kitchen. He found a vase and started to put the flowers in.

Despite Cole saying that it was okay for her not to have to cook dinner if she wasn't feeling well, Sammie was determined to cook him something. She felt like she owed him after everything that he had done and a little morning sickness was not going to stop her from doing that. Sammie had to argue though that it was not morning sickness since it had lasted all day. She felt a little bit better after speaking to Cole on the phone and then went to one of the stores to pick up some things for dinner. Thankfully her stomach behaved for the trip to the shops and a little while later she came home with all of the ingrediants to make them quiche for dinner and chocolate mousse for dessert.

For the rest of the afternoon Sammie spent her time either cooking, or in the bathroom being sick. She had given herself plenty of time to make dinner because of this. When Cole finally arrived home at the end of the day the quiche was in the oven cooking and the mousse was in the fridge setting. Sammie was upstairs in the bathroom once more being sick. When she heard him call out for her she got up from the bathroom floor and cleaned herself off, careful to use mouthwash before coming downstairs.

"Hey" Sammie said as she walked into the kitchen with a smile. She looked a little pale but for the most part she was okay.

"Hey Yourself," Cole smiled some more. "I got you some flowers, how are you feeling?" He asked moving to where she was wrapping her up in his arms and kissing her forehead. "I missed you today."

Cole had a long day at work and was tired and just wanted to be done. He had gotten in trouble for taking too long of a break with one of the guys and tomorrow morning he had mandatory training which always sucked, and usually consisted of marching or running 20+ miles. All he wanted to do was spend the evening with Sammie and then go to bed.

"I have training at 0500 in the morning but I should be back by 0900 and we can get to the doctors in time." He felt like he was talking up a storm and laughed a little. "I'm sorry.. tell me about your day." He said sitting down to listen.

Sammie hugged him tight as he wrapped his arms around her almost the instant that he saw her. She kissed his neck softly as they hugged before he pulled back and went to sit down. The flowers were sitting in the middle of the table and they were beautiful, Sammie felt very spoilt as she moved to sit down with him. She listened as he mentioned that he had training in the morning and frowned a little bit. She knew that those training sessions could stretch into the morning and it would be cutting it fine for him to be able to get home and showered in time to go to the doctors appointment at 9:30.

"My day was a little boring. I went to the shops and cooked dinner" She said with a playful and sarcastic smile as if that was the most interesting thing in the world. "My stomach still wont settle" Sammie said trying not to worry him about it as it was just a little morning sickness. For the moment her stomach was behaving and she was glad since the last thing she wanted was for Cole to see her sick.

"Are you sure you will be back in time tomorrow?" Sammie sounded a little doubtful. She didn't want to have to go to the appointment tomorrow by herself and didn't want to cancel or reschedual because of how sick she had been today.

"I promise." Cole said reaching over taking her hands in his. "I'll be back I promise." He said trying to reassure her but was still a little skeptical himself. He knew that he'd cut it close and probably wouldnt have time to shower or do anything before they had to leave. Training ended at 0900 and they had to be there at 0930. He wouldn't let on though that he was worried in the slightest.

"What's for dinner? I'm starving." He said trying to change the subject relatively quickly. "And have you talked to your mom at all? Is she still going to come for a visit soon?"

Sammie nodded her head a little when Cole said that he would be there. He would certainly be cutting it close but if he said he was going to be there then he was going to be there. Sammie had no reason not to trust him on this. She managed a small smile as she squeezed his hand across the table. They would just have to wait for tomorrow to see what would happen.

When Cole mentioned dinner she grinned. "We are having Quiche and then there is chocolate mousse for after" She said as she got up from the table and moved over to finish dishing it up. While she was filling the plates she answered him about her mum. "I spoke to her earlier and she said that she might be able to come and visit next week. I offered for her to stay off base if she wanted but she insisted that if there was room here then she was fine staying with us. I hope that is okay?" Sammie asked as she walked over to the table and put dinner down in front of him. "I hope you like it" She said as she sat down next to him with a plate of her own.

Cole smiled as she sat down and gave him the food. He took a whiff of it and said, "Wow, this smells amazing babe." he said as he took a bite and smiled even bigger. "And it tastes amazing too." He said as he continued to eat.

"I can't wait to meet her, she is more than welcome to sleep in the guest bedroom." Cole said truly excited to meet Sammie's mom but truthfully a little nervous. After all he had knocked up her daughter and convinced her to live a life that he was sure she wouldn't be 100% happy with. He wouldn't let it bother himself though and knew that he could prove to Sammie's mother that he would take care of her daughter and their baby.

"Do you think she'll like me?" he asked with a joking mock tone to his voice.

It was amazing how much Sammie's face came alive when Cole said that he loved what she had cooked him. With them not being together for very long, Sammie was still trying to figure out what he liked in terms of food. Also her cooking skills were at times questionable and nowhere near as good as his so she was glad that he liked it. Once he had tried it she also began eating and had to admit it did taste good.

"I think she will love you" Sammie said honestly. "I mean if anything she will blame me for getting in this situation and I just know she is going to give me a lecture on using birth control" She said with a smile. Sammie had only come looking for Cole because of the baby so that one night on his hotel room had really changed their lives. "You have nothing to worry about. Once she see's how happy I am she will be happy too"

"Good. I'm a little worried. What if she thinks I ruined your life?" He said a little more seriously. "But I trust you, I trust that she will like me." He smiled at her and leaned in taking her hand on top of the table. "Thank you." He said again. He wasn't sure what for but he was happy for her in his life and he was happy she was there to support him no matter what.

As they finished eating he stood up starting to clear away the dishes and clean up. It was just something he was used to. "We will have to go to the commissary and pick up a few things before your mom comes in and probably some more groceries." He added as he cleaned up. He finished and stretched slightly "Mmm, I'm going to go take a shower and change out of these work clothes, then we could watch a movie or something." He smiled leaning in and kissing Sammie softly.

Sammie enjoyed dinner, especially since she got to sit down with him and just relax. At the mention of needing to do some shopping she just nodded her head. "Sure, maybe we can go tomorrow after the doctors appointment?" Sammie suggested as she took a sip of her drink. Part of her felt guilty that Cole was cleaning up after dinner but she was too tired after such a long day to get up. She still felt weak from how sick she had been during the day but Sammie was just thankful that she hadn't thrown up since Cole had arrived home.

Sammie kissed him back with a smile. "I can set up a movie upstairs in the bedroom? Maybe get some chocolate or popcorn?" She suggested before kissing him again. "I really enjoyed last time we watched a movie in bed together" She said clearly meaning that night in the hotel room. Sammie knew that he was tired abut she just wanted to spend time with him, even if he fell asleep in bed.

"That sounds great." Cole said as he leaned in kissing her back softly. Cole thought back to the night in the hotel room that they spent together watching the movie and then getting intimate. It brought a small smile to his face but he couldn't help but think how far they'd come in such a short time. It was scary, but Cole wouldn't give it up.

He knew that he wouldn't be able to stay awake for an entire movie but he wanted to spend some quality time with Sammie and he knew she didn't mind. He headed upstairs with her and stripped down to just some boxers crawling into bed, he let out a soft sigh as he settled and wrapped his arms around Sammie in the bed.

As they watched the movie Cole let a bunch of things run through his head, mostly about the baby, and about Sammie. He finally spoke up over the movie. "What should we name the baby?" He asked smiling a little bit.

With a grin Sammie went to find some chocolate and then followed Cole where he had gone upstairs. By the time she reached the bedroom he was already stripping off which only caused her to smile further. Sammie paused to watch him get into bed before she to got into her pjs and then set up the movie. Climbing into bed she cuddled up in Cole's arms where she stayed for the duration of the film. Sammie was positive that Cole was asleep until her spoke up quietly about baby names.

Sammie turned around so that she was facing him, a small smile on her lips. "Well I was thinking Cole Jnr for a boy" She teased quietly. "Honestly I hadn't thought about it. Did you have any ideas? And do you even want to know the sex?" Sammie said knowing they hadn't really talked about this before. She didn't really know what she wanted when it came to knowing or not.

He laughed a little bit at the mention of Cole Junior and shook his head, "Not Cole Jr." He smirked and curled up with her more, talking face to face as they cuddled in the bed. "I think I do.. I'm not good with surprises." He laughed a little bit. "Besides it will be fun to paint the room pink or blue and pick a name and all of that I think. Do you want to know the sex?" He asked not knowing how Sammie felt since they'd never really talked about it before. "I want whatever you want." He said as they spoke softly to each other.

Sammie laughed softly at his response to naming their child after him. She knew that some people loved to do that but she had never been a fan of naming a child after a parent since she wanted her child to have his or her own identity. This was a whole new conversation for the two of them and Sammie really didn't know if Cole thought that same as she did. Thankfully though they were both speaking calmly and quietly as they lay there together in each others arms.

"So... I shouldn't surprise you while giving birth that we are having triplets?" Sammie teased with a grin. "And I think I would like to know the sex of the baby especially if we get to paint rooms and go shopping for all the little pink or blue outfits" It seemed like a lot of fun setting up for a child and the idea of painting the room yellow just didnt appeal to her.

"Sure.. if you want to give me heart attack." Cole joked in response to her surprising him with triplets. "I'll be lucky if I can handle one baby coming out, I'd probably lose it with three." He said relaxing more with Sammie. It seemed as though they were finally getting into a rhythm with each other and settling down there on base. He just hoped things went well the next week with her mom visiting.

As Sammie thought as soon as they started to watch the movie Cole was drifted off to sleep and completely out of it. His alarm went off like clockwork the next morning and he snuck out of bed to get ready. He threw his clothes on brushed his teeth quickly and got out of the bedroom so as not to wake Sammie up.

Cole went to training and got his ass kicked up and down. He was a little out of shape but a few more days of this and he'd be fine. They went on a 5 mile run, then had to spend an hour in the gym. He finished up around 9AM and rushed home as quick as he could. He was throwing his clothes off before he was even in the door calling out, "Give me 2 minutes to take a shower and we can go."

Sammie lay cuddled up in Cole's arms as she watched the first forty minutes of the movie. It was then that she found herself falling asleep so she turned the tv off and let her eyes close. It was amazing how well she slept when she had Cole's arms around her. The next morning she just groaned softly at the sound of his alarm going of but she didn't move or wake up completely. Instead she curled up and continued to doze.

When she heard the front door close it was almost at the same instant that her stomach twisted and she had to get up and rush to the bathroom. The morning sickness was bad and Sammie spent the next hour in the bathroom and then had to return at least twice while getting dressed and ready. By the time the clock ticked to nine she was completely dressed and ready to go to the doctors but she was also exhausted. All she wanted to do was climb back into bed.

As Cole rushed through the door, Sammie was glad to see him. A huge part of her had been scared that he wouldn't make it in time. "Thats fine, you stink of sweat" Sammie said laughing as he rushed past her. While she waited Sammie headed into the kitchen to have glass of water before they left.
