Double your pleasure, double your fun.
I doubt it will be positive, but better safe then sorry. When was the last time the two of you had sex?" Doctor Jacobs wanted to know.
"The day before Mia was pushed; we celebrated her getting the role," John answered.
"And the last time you took your pill?" the doctor asked.
"The night before the accident," Mia answered.
"It's very slim that you're pregnant, but we should find out for sure anyway," the doctor told her, drawing some blood carefully. Mia and John looked at each other, eyes wide as the doctor walked out of the room.
John and Mia looked up when the doctor walked in, his expression guarded.
"Please don't tell me I'm pregnant," Mia said, her eyes wide. John shot her what would have been a look of amusement had it not been for the fact that he was worried about Tyler kicking his ass. "I mean I want kids, but I, I'm only eighteen and I want to dance!" Mia stammered. John took her hand and squeezed.
"The test was inconclusive. It was either too soon to tell or negative. We'll wait about three weeks and rerun the test then," Doctor Jacobs said. He saw the look on Mia's face. "You will be here in three weeks. It's going to take at least that long for your bruising to go down and I want to keep an eye on you," he added. Mia released the breath she was holding as Doctor Jacobs left the room.
"You're doing great Mia," John encouraged as he helped her walk the halls.
"I don't feel well," Mia whispered, grabbing his arm.
"What's wrong?" John asked, studying her face carefully.
"My stomach's cramping really badly," Mia complained. John helped her back to her room and rang for the nurse. The nurse looked Mia over quickly and looked at her chart.
"It says you're due for a pregnancy test tomorrow. I'll call the doctor and get the ultrasound machine," the nurse said. John held Mia's hand, hating the look of pain and fear on her face.
"I'm scared," Mia murmured, her eyes wide as she held her abdomen in pain. Doctor Jacobs and the nurse hurried in with an ultrasound machine in time to hear Mia gasp and a flood of bloody discharge leave her. John paled and quickly turned his gaze from the foot of the bed to Mia's face.
"Relax Mia," he said softly, stroking her hair.
"I need for you to straighten out for me Mia," Doctor Jacobs said gently. He pushed the bloody gown aside and poured a small amount of gel onto her abdomen.
"What's wrong with me?" Mia asked. John heard the fear in her voice that matched the fear he had inside him as they waited for Doctor Jacobs to give them an answer.
"Mia, I need for you to relax for me. I know you're scared, and I don't blame you. I need for both of you to listen carefully," Doctor Jacobs said. John and Mia focused on the doctor's face. "You're having a miscarriage right now Mia. The gush of discharge was the fetus and part of the placenta. I can see the rest of the placenta detaching from your uterus here on the ultrasound. You're going to be fine," Doctor Jacobs told her gently. Mia's eyes widened more and she gasped in both shock and pain. John was floored and surprised by the sudden sadness that swept over him. The doctor made John leave the room despite Mia's protests so that the nurses could help Mia change and change the bedding on the bed.
"What do we do now?" John asked.
"You give her time. Even if the two of you didn't want a baby right now, this is a lot to handle, and it takes a huge toll on the body and the emotions of both people in the relationship. Mia is going to need you even more then she did before, I just hope you're up to it," Doctor Jacobs told John. John swallowed nervously as the nurses walked out of Mia's room; he could hear her crying quietly and he felt helpless. "Go on in there," the doctor added.
John nodded and slipped back into the hospital room. "Mia?" John asked uncertainly. Mia looked up with an apologetic smile.
"I'm sorry," Mia murmured. John sat down gently on the bed next to her.
"What are you sorry for? You didn't do anything wrong," John asked.
"I, I, I should have been stronger," Mia stammered.
