“One more push, Honey. You are almost there… that’s it…I am so proud of you…” Tina’s voice was soft, encouraging as she spoke in Bette’s ear, one hand holding Bette’s tightly palm to palm, while the other moved sweaty curls off the brunette’s forehead. “You can do this, Baby… we are so close to meeting our daughter…and I love you, I love you…one more…”
“Tee…” it was a whisper, a lifeline, a prayer. Bette was holding on to every word her wife spoke like each syllable was a life preserver in a stormy sea. The contractions were coming fast and furious and Bette was using every last reserve of energy she had.
This was a brief moment in time, a minute, maybe two, where the pain was manageable and it was just them, the beeping of the monitor fading in the background as Tina pressed her forehead to Bette’s to whisper more encouragement, wishing that her own strength could be transferred to the brunette somehow. Nothing else mattered but the two of them, the air between them mixing, the sweat from Bette coating Tina, the trust that shone in Bette’s eyes making Tina fall in love with her all over again.
“I love you, Babe…I love you so much Sweet Bette…” she whispered again, seeing how her words impacted the brunette, empowered her, loving the soft smile and the way Bette squared her shoulders as she listened to Tina’s words.
It had been a long labor and Tina knew Bette was exhausted and uncomfortable, and she smiled at her wife when Bette reached up to cup her cheek, both waiting for the next contraction so Bette could push, the doctor ready, it was time.
“Get ready…” Dr. Wilson warned, saying something to the nurse, who pulled a cart over with delivery supplies.
Slow elephant tears trickled down Bette’s cheeks, tears of pain and fatigue and excitement in the anticipation of finally seeing their baby. She was overcome with the emotion of the snapshot of this day… a baby… she was about to give birth to a newborn baby… and dear God all her dreams were coming true. And it all started with the pretty blonde forever at her side, wiping her face with a cool washcloth and coating her heart with love.
