Chapter 637: The Baby Is a Tad Small
Different from humans, female beastmen could only conceive a few days after they went into heat. Hence, it was possible to calculate with precision the time of conception.
“Seems like a female baby,” Harvey said confidently.
Molly’s expression turned even more dazed. She first broke into a smile, before it vanished from her face, and a panicked expression appeared in her eyes.
This female baby must be Carl’s.
Although she had also mated with Edgar, at the time it had been quite a while after she went into heat, so she couldn’t have conceived then.
“Bai Qingqing, I’ll go back first.” Molly got to her feet and walked away dazedly.
Just from her reaction alone, Bai Qingqing could guess who the father was. She couldn’t help sighing with emotion about how the G.o.d of destiny made a fool of them.
The things that were out of Carl’s reach while he was alive became his after his death—understanding from his mate and a precious offspring.
However, it was incredible that Harvey was able to tell these sorts of things from just a sniff!
Harvey cast a strange glance at her back view, but very quickly his attention was seized away by Bai Qingqing’s puffed up belly.
He couldn’t help letting out a sigh. “Bai Qingqing, you’re pregnant again.”
Despite Harvey’s reserved nature, Bai Qingqing could still tell the meaning behind his words—Bai Qingqing, you truly are fertile!
This was made particularly apparent by that sigh.
Bai Qingqing was embarra.s.sed. Just then, the leopard cubs came running from afar having sniffed the scent of a fellow leopard.
Roar roar roar~
Roar roar roar~
They started calling out from afar. Just like all leopards, they had explosive power. Moving on their well-toned and long limbs, one could only see three yellow figures sprinting.
As the three of them were the only leopards among the tigers, Harvey instantly understood what their relations.h.i.+p with Bai Qingqing was.
And then, he let out another sigh, this time minus the reservedness—so fertile!
Bai Qingqing’s face exploded with redness.
Thankfully, Winston now was the indisputable big boss here, so she wasn’t afraid that formidable beastmen would hold her captive and force her to keep giving birth.
“How long have you been pregnant?” Harvey asked.
Speaking of her baby, Bai Qingqing was filled with joy. She caressed her tummy and replied, “It’s a female baby, about five to six months. I don’t know exactly how long either.”
“You don’t know?” Harvey asked in turn, confusion in his tone.
Parker answered on her behalf, “It’s been a long time, so it’s inevitable she lost track. Hurry up and take a look at her. How’s our female baby growing?”
Harvey touched Bai Qingqing’s entire stomach with his hand, then said, “She should be five months into her pregnancy.”
“Oh.” Bai Qingqing nodded. “What if it’s six months?”
If it was Winston’s, it would just nice be six months.
“Then, it means the baby is a tad small.” Harvey went on to ask, “How’s the fetal movement?”
The cubs sniffed about Harvey. As Bai Qingqing watched them, a look of recollection surfaced in her eyes. “When I was pregnant with the leopard cubs, I could sense the fetal movement by the time my stomach was this big. Why isn’t my female baby moving even till now? When does one sense fetal movement with a female baby?”
She gazed at Harvey with antic.i.p.ation, yet the latter’s countenance suddenly changed.
“You said the female baby didn’t move even till now?” Harvey asked nervously.
Startled, Bai Qingqing said honestly, “No, she hasn’t.”
Parker also panicked. “Is there a problem?”
Harvey pressed his ear against Bai Qingqing’s stomach and listened for a while, before saying, “Usually, you should sense fetal movement about four months in. This could mean that the female baby is very weak, so weak that you didn’t sense her fetal movement. You need to take note going forward.”
“Mm, mm.” At the thought of how she might be six months pregnant, Bai Qingqing felt even more panicked.
“Don’t worry. You need to stay relaxed.” Harvey comforted. “I’ll go and pick some herbs that are beneficial to the fetus right away.”
Parker held Bai Qingqing in his arms and stroked the top of her head rea.s.suringly, then said to him, “I’ll come along with you.”
