John Crichton looked over at the form sleeping next to him. He gently pulled the covers back from the body and laid his head softy against his wife's beautiful stomach, pressing a kiss on a rounded curve.

"Hello precious. It's Daddy," he whispered. John ran his hands slowly over the expansion of his wife's stomach. His hand was greeted with a bulge pushing out of the skin. John smiled and kissed the spot.

Aeryn Sun slowly opened her eyes to her husband kissing her rounded belly. She smiled and ran her hand through his hair.

"Good morning, Sunshine." John greeted his wife.

"Good morning to you, too." Aeryn said. John leaned down to kiss her. Aeryn responded by kissing him back passionately. John bit down lightly down on her bottom lip.

"Enough. You don't want to get me worked up. Do you?" he scolded. Aeryn laughed softly.

"That would be the least of your problems at the moment." Aeryn said as she sat on the edge of the bed. John slowly helped his wife get to her feet. She went to the refresher to take a quick shower. She emerged a few microts later dressed.

"Jool wanted us to come down to medical so she can take a scan of you to check on the baby." John said.

Aeryn groaned at him. "Frell, I really hate being probed at."

John smiled. "Just remember one thing, sunshine. We have no idea how long the gestation period is going to be for you. Remember our child is half sebacean and half human."

"Don't remind me. I feel like I have been pregnant for four cycles," she said sarcastically. John smiled at her amusement and held out his hand to her.

"If you are a good girl. I will let you have some extra food cubes," he bribed her.

"Oh goody!" she said with a smirk on her face.

********

Aeryn lay on the examination table as Jool scanned over her body with the medical equipment. John had been called up to command to take care of a little problem. Frell you, Rygel! Jool finished scanning and looked at the control panel to get the readings.

"How much longer do you think?" Aeryn asked as she sat up.

"Well, since this is the first Sebacean/Human pregnancy, I have to take the information that John has provided with human gestation. A Sebacean gestation is average of six monens, whereas Human gestation is nine monens. You have had a gestation period of seven monens." Jool said as she turned toward Aeryn with a smile on her face. "According to my scan, it looks like that the child has turned in the womb and you are in the beginning stages of labor."

"Yotz." Aeryn groaned.

"I figured this would be good news. Since you said that you are tired of being pregnant." Jool teased.

"Jool, how's the patient?" John asked as he entered medical. Aeryn turned to look at her husband.

"You wife is in the early stages of labor. The child can come at anytime now." Jool said

John looked at his wife. "Well, I guess you won't have to be pregnant much longer."

"Funny, Crichton. But just remember one thing, I am the one pushing this child out while you are having a grand ole time." Aeryn said through clenched teeth.

"And the mood swings begin again." John said as he remembered back to two monens ago when Aeryn had returned to Moya. The mood swings were a normal part of Sebacean pregnancy.

Jool backed out of the medical slowly, hoping not to get Aeryn's attention because the last time that Aeryn was in such a mood. Jool almost lost most of her hair because Aeryn threatened to cut it all off.

John smiled as his wife as he helped her off the examination table. "Pilot said that he needed to speak with us in his den," he said as he wrapped his arm around her waist.

"I think we should head up there then. I am sure that he has an answer to the request we asked of him and Moya." Aeryn said as she laid her head on his shoulder.

"Well, let's not keep him waiting." John said as he led his wife out of medical.

********

Aeryn sat on the side of Pilot, resting her aching body. Her labor has started in full force, but she did not lead anyone on to the knowledge. John was standing in front of Pilot.

"Pilot, have you an answer to our request?" John asked as he crossed his arms over his chest. Pilot looked up from his console.

"Yes, Commander. Moya and I have agreed on a name for you offspring." Pilot said. Aeryn smiled as the memory of a similar situation played in her mind. Moya had wanted Aeryn to name her offspring. She named him Talyn after her father.

"What have you two decided?" Aeryn asked as she caressed Pilot's brow.

"Moya and I have decided on the name Amara for your offspring. Moya and I are very honored to name your offspring." Pilot said as he looked both at John and Aeryn. Aeryn slid closer to Pilot, taking on of his fours arms, putting a hand on her belly.

"John and I are both even more honored to have a child named after one of Moya's creators. Amara will be loved by all." Aeryn said looking into Pilot's eyes. She felt another pain grip her middle. Aeryn tried to ignore the pain, but it became stronger. John saw the look of alarm on her face. He went towards her.

"Aeryn, are you okay?" he asked with a worried expression on his face, putting a hand on her shoulder.

"No, I think there is something terribly wrong." She said trying to stand up, but blackness fell over her. John caught her as she collapsed. John activated his com.

"Jool, meet me in medical. There is something wrong with Aeryn. She passed out cold on me." He said with alertness in his voice.

"I will meet you down there." Jool's voice cracked over the com.

John picked up Aeryn in his arms; he felt something sticky on his hands. He looked down and saw blood on them. " Frell!" he exclaimed as he ran out of Pilot's den with his unconscious wife in his arms.

********

Aeryn heard someone calling her name, but she did not want to leave this warm place. She opened her eyes slowly to see John and Jool standing over her. Aeryn felt pain rip through her body. She screamed in agony.

"What the frell is wrong with me?" she demanded. John put a reassuring hand on his wife's cheek. 

"Jool is doing another scan. Just remain still." John said. Aeryn looked into her husband's eyes, knowing that something was terribly wrong. Jool finished scanning Aeryn's body and turned to exam what had come up on the screen. John left Aeryn's side and stood next to Jool.

"What is wrong?" he asked.

Jool sighed heavily. "The child has damaged her peripheral nerve. Aeryn cannot regulate blood. She is losing volumes as we speak. We have to deliver the child to save Aeryn."

John looked back at his wife who was lying on the examination table, her face pale. "Then deliver that baby and save my wife." He said with alarm in his voice. Jool went over to her workstation and grabbed an injection device.

"This will help along the birthing process. Aeryn should deliver with in the arn," she said looking at John.

"Will someone please tell me what the frell is going on?" Aeryn demanded through clenched teeth as pain ripped through her body again. John got to his wife's side, taking her hand in his. "There have been some complications. The baby has damaged your peripheral nerve. You are losing a lot of blood. The baby needs to be delivered fast, so Jool can repair the damage."

"Is the baby going to be alright?" she asked looking at Jool. Jool came to her side and injected her with the serum.

"The child shall be fine. You must rest because you are going to need all the energy to push the child out from your body. I have injected a serum into your system to speed up the birthing process." Jool said.

John kissed his wife's hand. "Rest, baby. I am right here with you."

********

"COME ON, BABY. JUST ONE MORE PUSH!" John yelled as he held his wife's shoulders as she struggled to push their child from her weakening body

"Ahhhh..." Aeryn screamed as she gave a final push, tightening her muscles to bring her child into the world. The child slipped from her body. Jool picked up the child and gave it a small whack on its bottom. The baby let out a healthy cry.

John cried as he saw his daughter for the first time. He loosened his grip on Aeryn's shoulder. Her body leaned against his for support. Jool placed the baby in Aeryn's awaiting arms. She looked down at the child that she and John created, tears coming to her eyes. John wrapped his arms around both his wife and child.  

"Amara Erin Sun-Crichton." Aeryn whispered as she brought her lips to her daughter's brow, kissing her softly. John looked in wonder at the small life that his wife held in her arms. He brought his finger to his child's hand and Amara wrapped her hand around it.

Pray God you can cope. I stand outside this woman's work,
This woman's world.
Ooh, it's hard on the man,
Now his part is over.
Now starts the craft of the father.

"Welcome to the world, Precious. Mommy and Daddy are here for you. We love you so very much." He said quietly to his daughter. John looked at his wife with a smile on his face. "I love you and thank you for giving me a daughter."

Aeryn smiled weakly back at him. "Your welcome and I love you, too." Jool came over to the couple.

"Chiana is going to take the child and clean her up." Jool said as she held out her arms for the baby to be placed into them. Aeryn reluctantly placed the baby in Jool's arms. She had a worried expression on her face. Jool smiled softly, "I will bring her right back to you after she is done. I promise."

Jool left medical with the child in her arms. John laid his wife down on the examination table, caressing her pale cheek. "Who would have guessed that fate had this in store for us?" he said as he smiled. Aeryn smiled weakly at him. She closed her eyes as she felt the more blood drain from her body.

"John..." she whispered as she touched his cheek. "Jool is not going to be able to repair the damage. I am going to die."

I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.
I know you have a little life in you yet.
I know you have a lot of strength left.

John shook his head in denial. "No, she can repair it! You will live."

Aeryn shook her head. "John, you and I both know there is only one way for it to be repaired. We don't have that option." Tears began to slide down her cheeks.

"You are not going to die. You are not going to leave me again." John said as tears ran down his cheeks. Aeryn looked up at her husband.

"I love you and nothing will ever change that. I don't want to die here. Take me to the terrace. I want to hold my daughter in my arms before I die." Aeryn said through her tears. John was reluctant at first, but hecomplied with his wife's wishes. He gathered her in his arms. Jool was walking back into medical with Amara in her arms.

"Where are you going with her?" Jool demanded.

"Give Aeryn, Amara." John said quickly.

Jool placed the baby in Aeryn's arms. "What the frell is going on?" John hurried out of medical with his wife and child in his arms.

********

Aeryn slowly felt as John sat down on the cushion on the terrace, his strong arms embracing her dying body. Aeryn tightened her arms around Amara. John was crying hard.

I should be crying, but I just can't let it show.
I should be hoping, but I can't stop thinking.
Of all the things I should've said,
That I never said.
All the things we should've done,
That we never did.
All the things I should've given,
But I didn't.

"I don't want your life to end like this. You still have so much time a head of you." John whispered into her ear.  Aeryn pulled her face away from his shoulder, her blue eyes full of tears.

"I don't regret one microt of my life that I have spent with you. You have made me the happiest person," she said as she looked down at her sleeping daughter in her arms. "You have given me so much more. John, you taught me how to love and to be loved. I brought our daughter into this world out of love."

"Aeryn, you have made me the happiest man in this universe. I love you with all my heart and soul. You have given me your love and our precious daughter. Thank you for all of that." John said as he tightened his arms around his wife and daughter. Aeryn slowly felt a force pulling her soul away from her body. No please! Not yet. I just need more time.  Aeryn brought her lips to John's and kissed him. John pulled back a little to look into her blue eyes. "I love you, John Crichton. Take care of our little girl."  Aeryn's eyes closed and her breathing stopped.

"AERYN!! NO!!" John shouted. "Come on baby. Don't leave me. Don't leave me..." John cried as he began to rock back and forth with his wife and daughter in his arms.

Give me these moments back.
Give them back to me.
Give me that little kiss.
Give me your hand.

Amara started to cry. John laid his wife's body on the cushion beside him. He took his daughter into his arms. John rocked back and forth. "Shhh...precious. Daddy's here. Daddy's never going to leave you." John walked farther out onto the terrace, looking down at his daughter. Amara had the same blue eyes as Aeryn. Amara wrapped her tiny hand around his finger. He sighed and looked out into space. A star twinkled brightly in the distance.

Oh, darling, make it go away.
Just make it go away now.

-Kate Bush
