Title: It's Normal
Rating: PG-13
Series: Manga/Brotherhood
Word Count: 463
Characters: Ed/Winry
Summary: The body does weird things to you when you're pregnant.

“So what did the doctor say today?” Ed asked, hugging his wife to his chest, hand on her expanding belly.

“The baby’s doing fine,” she smiled back. “My back hurts a little bit, though.”

Ed stared, “Wait, your back hurts? Is that normal? Where does it hurt? Is it your shoulders or down low? If it’s down low, maybe you should rest…or lie down…hang on, I’ll call the doctor, we can see—”

“Ed,” Winry sighed, grabbing him by the wrist before he got a chance to run off and call every doctor in a thirty mile radius. “It’s fine. My back is gonna hurt a little bit…and my feet…and a lot of things. It’s normal.”

He frowned. “It shouldn’t be normal if you’re hurting.”

She gave another sigh. “It’s normal for being pregnant. Don’t do what you did last time with the morning sickness—”

I was worried!

He really was too sweet about these things, but all the same…“I know. But I told you, and pretty much every doctor in Amestris told you, it’s normal. You shouldn’t get so worried. I’m going to be in a little pain, I can’t help that. The body does weird and gross things to you when you’re pregnant.”

He gave her a guilty look, and came to hold her against him again. “I don’t like seeing you in pain. I don’t like not being able to do anything for you…”

He really was being too sweet. This was why, idiot that he was, she couldn’t help but love him. “There is one thing you could do for me,” she said, getting a wicked smirk on her face. “I could use a little relaxation…”

He stared at her. “You want tea? A backrub or something? How about—”

Winry grabbed him by the collar and gave what she hoped was a sexy grin (it was hard to feel sexy when you couldn’t see your feet anymore). “Not that kind of relaxation.”

With the way his eyes lit up, he got it now. “Uh…you sure?” he said…while glancing a bit longingly towards their bedroom. “Is it…safe to do?”

“What do you think was the first thing I asked him?”

The second she gave the okay, he grabbed her and kissed her hard, and then whisked her off to their bed. This whole pregnancy thing had been rough on him too, but with a little ‘fun’ now and again, they’d make it through…

Ten minutes later, a shirtless Ed sprinted from their bedroom to the kitchen, heaving and retching. He grabbed a glass of water and continued to sputter in disgust as Winry, sheet around her form, yelled back at him,

“I told you that might happen if you kept playing with them!”
