I have skipped the part where Lily tells James that she is pregnant because it is in Telling Him. Please don't get mad at me!

Can't explain all the feelings
that you're making me feel
My heart's in overdrive and
you're behind the steering wheel
Touching you, touching me
touching you, god you're touching me


I grasped the couch firmly, trying not to cry out from the pain that was occurring. James was at his job at the Ministry (he had become Deputy Head Auror just two weeks ago), so Sirius was keeping me company and making sure that I didn't give birth early. I was headed toward the kitchen when the pain started getting consistently worse.

"Oi! Potter!" As my warden liked to call me. "I need your help... is there something wrong?" I nodded my head. sirius walked over to me and supported me as the pain started to subside. I sighed in relief.

"Get... James," I said, a little out of breath. Sirius nodded and immediately Flooed to the Ministry. The pain was gone - for now. It took Sirius about ten minutes to finally return with James - just as another spasm of pain shot through me, much more painful than the last one. I couldn't contain the pain anymore - I screamed. James rushed to my side.

"I... think... he's... coming," I said, gasping in between each word.

"Who, Voldemort?"

"No," I whispered. "The baby."

I believe in a thing called love
Just listen to the rhythm of my heart
There's a chance we could make it now
We'll be rocking 'til the sun goes down
I believe in a thing called love
Ooh!


James just stared at my face.

"What? Are you sure?" I glared at Sirius.

"Would I be in this much pain if he was kicking?!?!?" I said sarcastically. I turned to James. "Go get the bag," I said as calmly as I could. He obliged. Within a matter of seconds, James and I were standing in the fireplace, getting ready to use the Floo network.

"Sirius," James said. His friend looked at him solemnly. "Owl Albus." He nodded and ran off to write to Dumbledore. Then there were green flames and we were standing in the entrance to the maternity ward at St. Mungo's. Alice and Frank were standing in front of us, Alice clearly having a horrible contraction. Frank looked at us and smiled wearily. We walked over to them, James forcing me into a nearby chair. I groaned as another contraction came and passed. Suddenly, green flames lit up the room and Sirius walked out, closely followed by Albus Percival Wolfric Bryan Dumbledore. HE quickly walked over to where we were sitting and called a nurse over. The nametag on her nurse's outfit read "Shelby." She looked at James and gave him a flirty smile.

"Can I help you, sir?" She said to James. I glared at her before answering.

"My husband and I need to have a Healer immediately." Shelby's face looked priceless when she heard the first part.

"Right away, ma'am," she said nastily, before winking at James and leaving. I looked up at James, who was glaring after her.

"I don't flirt with others, now that I'm married," he explained, not even looking down at me.

I wanna kiss you every minute,
every hour, every day
You got me in a spin
but everythin' is A.OK!
Touching you, touching me
touching you, god you're touching me
I believe in a thing called love
Just listen to the rhythm of my heart
There's a chance we could make it now
We'll be rocking 'til the sun goes down
I believe in a thing called love
Ooh! Guitar!


About an hour later, I was pacing around the emergency room, waiting for the dilation process to finish. There was a knock on the door just as another contraction hit. I hissed through my teeth and said, "Intrate."*

Dumbledore and Healer John Henry entered the room. Healer Henry spoke first.

"Well, it's about time, Mrs. Potter." I sighed in relief (again) as the contraction ended.

"Finally!" I muttered under my breath. That was when I noticed that James wasn't there.

"Where is James?!" I asked, afraid that I might have to go through this alone. The Healer was leading toward the bed. I struggled to loosen my grip.

"I need James!" I said.

"But you need to lie down!"

"I can't do this without James!"

"Mrs. Potter, your husband is not in here, but I assure you, he will be back as soon as possible. For right now, I need you to get on the bed and we need to start push-"

"I REFUSE TO DO ANYTHING WITHOUT MY-" I didn't get to finish the sentence. James had opened the door, and looked furious.

"Henry! Let go of my wife! I'm the one she wants." Henry's firm grasp was soon replaced with James' soft, warm, and calloused hand. I quickly climbed onto the bed, but had to stop as another contraction hit. I screamed again, the pain more than I could bear. Dumbledore came over to the other side of the table and grabbed my hand. I looked at him and he smiled at me.

"Ok Lily. Push!" I did as the Healer said, and screamed as the pain worsened by at least one hundred percent. I cried out in pain. James' grip tightened; he was in pain, too, because I was hurting so badly.

Touching you, touching me
touching you, god you're touching me
I believe in a thing called love
Just listen to the rhythm of my heart
There's a chance we could make it now
We'll be rocking 'til the sun goes down
I believe in a thing called love
Ooh!


A half an hour later, I was holding a tiny, baby boy with raven black hair. I had finally gotten him to stop crying. He was just breathing now, his eyes still closed. He yawned.

"Aw," I said. James chuckled and kissed the top of my forehead. I smiled. The tiny creature in my hands started opening his eyes - they were emerald green, just like mine.

"Hey, baby," I cooed. "I'm Lily. I'm your mommy. And this big goofy looking guy is your daddy. And that weird looking guy standing in the corner? That's Uncle Sirius. And The other guy is your Uncle Remus. You'll meet Uncle Peter later. And the man with the silver beard is Professor Dumbledore. He will be your teacher when you are eleven!"

The little boy just looked up at me and James.

"He needs a name." I looked up at James, contemplating a few names.

"Harry James Potter?" James and I said at the same time. We laughed.

"Great minds think alike," James said in a husky voice. I looked back at Harry.

"Welcome to the world, Harry James Potter."
