Chapter 1619: Only Son
Heaving a big sigh of relief, Bai Qingqing wrapped the egg in a towel and gently wiped away the traces of blood on it.
“Finally gave birth. This egg is really big. No wonder it wouldn’t come out.” As she spoke, Bai Qingqing looked towards Shen Yin. The latter looked like she had just been scooped out from the water, with only a faint breath of life left. It wasn’t any easier than giving birth to a human baby.
Bai Qingqing set the egg down beside her head and said gently, “Take a look.”
When Shen Yin turned her head and saw the egg, strangeness and joy blended in her eyes. She reached out a quivering hand to touch it.
“It’ll become healthier when it gets bigger, right?” Shen Yin’s breath was slightly weak, but there was no resentment in her voice.
Mu Ya, on the other hand, felt frustrated. “It was my fault for failing to discover your pregnancy earlier.”
As he spoke, he looked towards his mother and asked, “Mom, has Yinyin finished giving birth? If not, if she eats less going forward, will the egg be smaller in size?”
Bai Qingqing replied, “You can go to the hospital to check for this. Ooh… let me ask if we can bring the instrument home.”
“Mm, thanks for the trouble, Mommy,” Mu Ya responded, before immediately looking towards Shen Yin. He grazed his fingers over her pale face and said with heartache, “You’ve worked hard. It wasn’t easy for you to grow a tad fatter. Why did you go back to becoming so thin all of a sudden?”
“It wasn’t hard. Compared to others who have to go through ten months of pregnancy, it’s already very relaxing for me,” Shen Yin said with a smile.
Mu Ya’s att.i.tude truly made Shen Yin heave a big sigh of relief. She had been afraid that he would have a bad impression of her after seeing her scream and cry hysterically. Thankfully, all he felt was heartache for her.
Bai Qingqing gave Mu Ya instructions on how to care for Shen Yin before going out.
Mu Tian and Mu Hai were watching television in the living room. When they saw their mother coming out, they immediately ran over.
“Mom, Shen Yin has given birth? It’s Third’s?” Mu Tian asked incredulously.
Mu Hai looked equally shocked as he gazed at his mother.
Bai Qingqing replied with a smile, “Yeah, she’s given birth. In a few days’ time, you’ll be able to see your little nephew.”
“My goodness. I’m too shocked. Totally didn’t expect this.” Mu Tian shook his head as he spoke.
Bai Qingqing suddenly said, “The two of you mustn’t scare me like this. If you have a girlfriend, bring her back to let us take a look first. Date for a few years before confirming your relations.h.i.+p.”
Mu Hai said, “We know. We won’t dare to be careless with something like this.”
Even if Third’s endeavor in finding a mate had gone smoothly, they didn’t dare to be reckless. They had heard that girls asked for a breakup on a whim. It would be terrible if they got dumped.
Mu Tian also expressed that he would heed his mother’s advice.
“Hurry up and come eat. It’s nearly eight,” Parker called out from the dining room as he brought the food that he had kept warm in the pot to the table.
Bai Qingqing wasn’t hungry before this, but at the mention of food, she suddenly felt hungry. She walked towards the dining room right away. “Mu Ya and Little Yin haven’t eaten, either. I’ll bring it into the room for them.”
“I’ll do it. Just sit down and eat,” Parker said sternly.
Bai Qingqing had no choice but to obediently go eat.
Because moving the apparatus easily affected the precision of the apparatus, on the next day Shen Yin still went to the hospital to do a B-scan ultrasonography. Her womb was clean, and no more eggs could be seen.
This answer disappointed Shen Yin, but Mu Ya was rather happy. As for Bai Qingqing, she heaved a sigh of relief.
The first egg had already ripped a wound in Shen Yin. If she were to give birth shortly after, she would probably be in even greater pain. It was a good thing that it was an only son.
After confirming there was only one egg, they prepared to incubate it.
Shen Yin had wanted to incubate the egg in her bed, under the blankets, but the Bai family unanimously objected. Never mind the fact that it would take a toll on her after having just given birth, there was too big a risk in having a human incubate the egg.
In the end, Mu Ya applied for ten days’ leave to especially stay at home to incubate the egg.
Seven days later, the baby eagle broke out of his sh.e.l.l on time.
