Chapter 22 :) I couldn't resist. I just needed to write this wedding chapter


Rachel wrapped her arms around her sleeping daughter and pulled her close. Finn wasn't there, he was at his bachelor party with Puck (God knows what they did there) so Amy slept in her parents bed tonight. Rachel, however, was far too nervous to even think about sleep. Tomorrow she'd get married to the man of her dreams and they'd be a real family. Finn and Rachel had been engaged a little over six months now and they were more in love than ever. Finn had adopted Amy and they had changed Amy's name about two months ago, so now she was Amalthea Lola Hudson and she wore her name with so much pride. Whenever someone asked for her name Amy emphasized the Hudson. Rachel and Finn found that it was very cute and they just smiled whenever they heard it. Everything was planned and ready for tomorrow. Finn's best man would be Puck and Rachel's bridesmaids would be Quinn and Marley. Jenny and Amy would be the flower girls and Amy was so excited to wear the dress they had picked out for tomorrow. Rachel's dress was at Burt and Carole's because they all knew that Finn would've peeked if they had kept it at the apartment. Rachel sighed and turned on the other side but suddenly she felt an incredible nausea overcoming her. Her stomach twisted and turned and she took a deep breath. That had to be the nerves. She tried to breathe deeply but her body wasn't having it. Rachel sat up in the bed. Big mistake. She tossed the covers aside and ran into the bathroom, throwing up in the toilet. With shaking hands she flushed the loo and went over to the sink. She brushed her teeth to get rid of the disgusting taste and when she opened the drawer to grab a towel, something else caught her attention. A blue package. Tampons. Her head immediately started counting. The last period was about 35 days ago which made her at least a week overdue. She counted again and again but always came to the same result. 35 days. A wordless scream escaped Rachel's mouth and she placed her hand over her belly, stroking it lightly. She couldn't possibly be pregnant, could she? How was that possible? They always used protection. But then she remembered a certain night about one month ago…


One month ago

Rachel snuggled under the covers and sighed. She always felt so happy, content and loved after sex with Finn. He was cleaning himself off in the bathroom and Rachel waited for him to come back because they always cuddled after they did it. The door to the bedroom opened and Rachel smiled brightly at the sight of her fiancé until she realized the shocked expression on his incredibly pale face.

"Baby, what's wrong?" she asked and Finn gulped.

"That's wrong" he said and lifted his arm, the used condom in his hand.

"What…" Rachel was confused.

"It broke" Finn whispered. Rachel stared at her fiancé, a blank expression on her face.

"Words can't describe how sorry I am, Rach. I should've been more careful" he said and lowered his hand, throwing the condom into the waste basket. The cozy and happy feeling in Rachel's body was gone and a strange feeling of not knowing what to do spread inside her. Finn climbed into bed next to her and wrapped her up in his arms.

"What if I'm pregnant?" Rachel asked and looked up at him.

"Then we'll have baby in nine months, I guess" he said and a slight smile tugged on his lips.

"Do you want to have kids with me?" she asked. Finn caressed her cheek and looked deep into her eyes.

"Of course I want to have kids with you. I might have preferred it if we had planned it but if it happens I'll be more than happy to be a dad again" he said and kissed her on the lips.
"I love you" Rachel said and snuggled deeper into his arms.
"I love you too, future Mrs Hudson" he said and Rachel just smiled. She liked the sound of that.

Rachel got ripped out of her thoughts by the twist of the doorknob. She hadn't locked the door so now Amy stood in the bathroom.

"Mommy, what are you doing?" she asked and rubbed her eyes.

"Nothing, sweetie. I'm just very nervous" Rachel said and picked Amy up.

"Don't be nervous. Daddy loves you" Amy said as Rachel laid her down on mattress.

"I know. And we love you" Rachel said and kissed her forehead.

"Love you too" Amy said and then she was asleep. Rachel laid down next to her and her hand subconsciously placed on her belly again while she thought of the new life which may was growing inside her right now.


Rachel was in the bathroom and clutched the phone tightly in her hands. Finn was already at Puck's to get ready for the wedding and Burt was watching Amy. Rachel paced back and forth in the room until she heard the liberating ring of the door bell. She ran across the apartment and swung the door open, hugging her soon-to-be mother in law.

"Rach, sweetie. Look at you" Carole said as she pulled back.

"Carole, I'm so glad that you're here" Rachel said, sobbing a little. Carole placed the bag with Rachel's dress on the floor and looked at her.

"What's up, honey? You look worried" Carole said. Rachel led her into the living room and the two women said down on the sofa. Rachel fumbled with the engagement ring on her finger and a few tears rolled down her cheeks. Carole scotched over and placed an arm around her shoulders.

"You can tell me what's up, Rachel" she said and rubbed her back in wide circles. Rachel wiped the tears away and swallowed the lump in her throat.

"Carole, I think I'm pregnant" she said and fresh tears threatened to fall.

"Oh honey. Does Finn know?" she asked with a caring expression on her face.

"No. I just realized last night that I'm overdue because I had to throw up" Rachel said, her body trembling.

"So you haven't taken a test yet?" she asked. Rachel shook her head no.

"Ok, here's what we'll do. I'm going to the drugstore now and you'll take a test. Then you're going to get married and tonight you're going to tell Finn the result" she said and hugged Rachel.

"Thank you so much. I don't know what I'd do without you" she said.

When Carole returned from the drugstore Rachel was beyond nervous. She grabbed the little box and disappeared in the bathroom. She unpacked the pregnancy test and stared at the little stick which was going to tell her whether she was pregnant or not. It took her a little time to build up the courage to actually pee on it. Then she stepped out to join Carole in the living room.

"Now we're waiting" she said.

"Now we're waiting" Carole nodded and hugged Rachel again, letting her know that she was there for her.


Finn stood up at the altar and ran a hand through his hair. His hands were sweating and his heart was racing.

"Dude, keep calm" Puck said and elbowed his best friend.

"Sorry" Finn said but couldn't stop being nervous. He was positive that Rachel would look beautiful but still he was curious what dress she wore.

"I'm so freaking nervous" he said and rubbed his neck.

"I know. But it'll be worth it" Puck said. And then the organ started to play and Amy and Jenny appeared around the corner. Both girls looked so cute in their light pink dresses, skipping down the aisle throwing the rose petals everywhere. Amy winked at him and he smiled nervously. Quinn and Marley walked down the aisle next, both wearing pink dresses. Quinn gave him a knowing look and then a beauty in white appeared at the other end of the aisle. Finn blinked a few times to prevent the tears from falling because Rachel was just so damn beautiful. She had the brightest smile on her face and when she finally reached him he took her hand and he realized that this was real. He was getting married to the love of his life.

"I love you" he whispered into her ear and then the priest started his speech. Rachel and Finn didn't really pay attention, they just had eyes for one another. And then it was the moment of truth.

"Finn Hudson, do you want to take Rachel Berry as your beloved wife to have and to hold, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish till death do you part?"

"I do" Finn said proudly.

"Rachel Berry, do you want to take Finn Hudson as your beloved husband to have and to hold, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish till death do you part?"

"I do" Rachel said, her voice breaking away at the end. She just couldn't stop the tears.

"I now pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss the bride" the priest said but Finn and Rachel didn't hear him anymore, they were already kissing each other lovingly.

"I love you, Mrs Hudson" he said and Rachel smiled at the sound of her new name. And she smiled at the thought of what she was about to tell him later.


Finn and Rachel were dancing at their reception when Rachel decided that it was about time to tell him the news.

"Finn, I have something to tell you" she said and her fingers played with the hair on his neck.

"Yes, my lovely wife?" he said and Rachel saw so much love and happiness in his eyes.

"You said that you wanted to have kids with me, right?" she said and realization it up on his face.

"Are you telling me that you're pregnant?" he said. Rachel nodded her head yes. Finn immediately placed one hand on her belly, an unbelievable amount of joy on his face.
"Really?" he asked, happy tears forming in his eyes.

"Yes. We're having a baby" Rachel said and kissed him fiercely.

"I'm so happy right now, Rach" he said and took her face in his hands, placing another loving kiss on her lips.

"Me too" she said and Finn wiped her tears away with his thumb.

"When are we going to tell Amy?" he asked but Rachel's lips were already on his again.

"Later" she whispered, nibbling on his bottom lip.

"But…"

"Later" Rachel said, swallowing his protest attaching her lips to his.

Later that day they left for their honeymoon in Florida. They hadn't told Amy yet, they had decided that they wanted to tell her after their honeymoon because they wanted to be there for her when she'd receive the big news. On the plane they snuggled together, Finn caressing her belly and Rachel kissing his neck. They were finally married, they already had a perfect daughter and now another baby on the way. Their life couldn't be more perfect right now and they were excited to see what the future had in store for them.


Ok, I'm crying right now because Finchel is just so perfect and I'm crying because this story is almost over. I don't want it to end... :(

Please review and stay tuned for the epilogue!
