Lynette was on her lunch break from work and walked into the waiting room of her OB-GYN's office. Suddenly she saw a familiar face sitting there reading a fashion magazine.
Shit! Lynette thought. We must've scheduled our appointments at the same time. Of course Gabrielle would go to the same doctor as Lynette. Fairview was a small town so it wasn't like there were many choices with obstetricians. What was Lynette going to do? She wasn't ready to tell her best friend about her pregnancy yet. Lynette took a deep breath. Her doctor was also a gynaecologist so if Gabrielle saw her she could lie and not mention anything about the twins.
"Hi, Lynette!" Gabrielle had looked up from her magazine and had been surprised to see Lynette.
"Hi, Gabby." Lynette said, taking the empty seat beside her friend.
"What are you doing here?" Gabrielle asked.
"Oh it's just a check up." Lynette lied. "Gotta make sure everything's working properly!" Lynette added with a nervous laugh.
Gabrielle weakly smiled, "Okay. I guess Penny's basketball game was a lie?"
Lynette nodded, "Yeah, I really had this appointment. Have you been seen yet?"
Gabrielle nodded, "I'm just waiting for my results."
Lynette was about to say something but got interrupted by the nurse coming to get her.
"Want to get lunch when you're done?" Gabrielle asked.
"Sure," Lynette accepted. She might as well tell Gabby about the pregnancy then. She could tell the nurse was getting impatient so she stood up and followed her to the exam room.
It wasn't an ultrasound appointment so Tom hadn't come to this one. It was just a check up. It didn't take long. The doctor said everything looked good and told her to come back in three weeks for an ultrasound.
Lynette thanked him and went back out to the waiting room. Gabrielle wasn't there so she assumed Gabrielle was getting her test results. Lynette sat back down and waited for her. When Gabrielle was back a few minutes later, Lynette couldn't tell what Gabrielle's results had been. She was smiling and didn't look upset so Lynette had no idea if her best friend was pregnant or not.
"Ready to go?" Gabrielle asked.
Lynette nodded, "Let's!"
A few minutes later they arrived at the restaurant and were seated at a table. Lynette was glad her nausea was going away because everything on the menu looked delicious. When the waiter came to take their order Lynette was surprised that Gabby only ordered a glass of water.
"You're not hungry?" Lynette asked, after the waiter left.
"I feel so sick." Gabby said.
"So you're..." Lynette began.
Gabrielle nodded, "I'm eight weeks pregnant."
Lynette smiled. "Well, congratulations." She was happy she would have someone to go through this with.
Gabrielle smiled too. She wasn't too excited yet but she had Lynette so she knew everything would be okay.
"So, I have something to tell you, too." Lynette began. She had finally worked up the courage to tell Gabby about her own pregnancy.
"What is it? You can tell me anything." Gabrielle said.
"I'm pregnant, too."
