When Kris and Janet left Dr. Boson’s office, after setting their next appointment, they decided to stop in and see how Delsie was doing. They found Taran already there visiting her wife. She was sitting on the side of the bed holding Delsie’s hand. Kris sat in the chair while Janet stood behind with her hands on her wife’s shoulders as the four of them talked.
[I’d like to tell them,] Kris told her wife.
[Are you sure?]
[They’re our closest friends and they’ll be happy for us... and if... well, they’ll be there for us...]
Janet understood what Kris meant and gave her shoulders a gentle squeeze. Kris reached up and took one of her wife’s hands in her own.
“We’ve got something we’d like to tell you,” Janet said.
“What is it?” Delsie asked.
Kris exchanged a looked with her wife before answering. “I’m pregnant.”
“I knew it! I knew something was going on with you two last night,” declared Taran. She got up and hugged them both. “Why didn’t you say anything last night when we asked you about it?”
Janet let out a small sigh. “We told you the truth when we said they’ve been having some trouble making our DNA compatible. We’ve been trying to have a baby for a couple years,” said Janet.
“Because of my alien DNA Janet’s body kept rejecting the fetus. She’s had four miscarriages. And my body just doesn’t seem to like the idea of being pregnant. It keeps wanting to treat the fetus like an infection. This is the second time around for me,” Kris explained.
“And the last,” Janet said softly as she squeezed her wife’s hand.
“But we’ve never made it this far before.”
“How far along are you?” Delsie asked.
“Four and half months.”
“You’re not even showing.”
Kris let out a bark of laughter. “You should see me without my clothes on.”
“That privilege is all mine, my love,” Janet replied.
That night Kris got up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. On the way back to bed she experienced a sharp pain that dropped her to her hands and knees. “Janet!”
Janet woke up and rushed to her wife who was curled up on her side in the middle of the floor. She took Kris’s head into her lap. “I’m right here, sweetheart.”
“Are you having contractions?”
Sweat popped out on Kris’s forehead, arms, and chest. She nodded.
“Remember to breathe slow and deep.”
Kris tried to take a slow, deep breath.
“That’s it; just like that.” She placed her hand on her wife’s belly. [Now clear your mind and focus. Relax all the muscles in your body. Slow breath in; release the tension with each exhale.]
With Janet’s help Kris was able to focus. After a while she was lying flat, totally relaxed, and breathing regular, deep, cleansing breaths. The contractions had stopped and there was no more pain. She opened her eyes and looked up into Janet’s brown eyes. Janet was cradling Kris’s head and smiled down at her. Kris didn’t miss the concern in her wife’s eyes.
“How do you feel now?” the doctor asked.
“I’m okay. Thank you.”
“You’re the one who did it, love.”
“You guided me.”
Janet smiled. “Can you get up?”
“We need to get you to the clinic.”
They got dressed and went to the clinic
Lettie Boson was contacted and came in immediately to examine Kris. During the exam Janet stood next to the table holding Kris’s hand.
“Okay, you can get dressed now, Kris,” Dr. Boson said before stepping out of the room.
After getting dressed Kris and Janet joined Lettie in her office. Boson wasn’t as optimistic as she had been that morning.
“I have to tell you, I don’t understand how you were able to stop the contractions. If you were any of my other patients I don’t believe you’d still be pregnant.”
“Kris is only 19 weeks. How much longer do you think she’ll be able to carry the baby?” Janet asked.
“I don’t know. We’re in uncharted territory here.” Lettie locked eyes with Kris. “No more work for you. Someone else will have to teach your classes. This pregnancy, and whatever it is you’re doing to keep it going, is taking its toll on you. You’re going to have to take extra good care of yourself. Good nutrition, lots of rest, no stress, plenty of relaxation.” She then smiled at the couple. “Pamper yourself – doctor’s orders. Now go home and get some sleep.”
“Thank you, Lettie,” said Janet. The couple left the doctor’s office. They were about to leave the clinic when Janet turned to her wife. “I want to take care of something. It’ll only take a minute.”
“I’ll be right back.”
Kris watched as Janet went into her own office. While she was waiting Dr Boson came out of her office. Kris waved the doctor over. “Dr. Boson, I have a question for you.”
“Sure, Kris, what is it?”
“As far as physical activity, just how far do I need to cut back?”
“Nothing strenuous. Walking is a good choice for keeping active.” The doctor paused as she took in the expression on her patient’s face. “What is it you’re concerned about?”
“What about making love?”
“You don’t swing upside down from a chandelier, do you?”
Kris smiled. “Not too often.”
“Kris, there’s no reason for you and Janet to avoid making love. An orgasm is not going to jeopardize you or the baby. Just let ‘gentle’ be your guide word as far as your body is concerned.”
“You’re welcome.” Dr. Boson left.
Janet returned from her office a moment later.
“Are you ready?” Kris asked.
“I sure am. Let’s go home and get some more sleep.”
In the morning Kris was woken up by a kiss on the forehead. She opened her eyes and saw her wife smiling down at her. “Mm, morning.”
“Afternoon would be more accurate.”
“Why didn’t you wake me up sooner?”
“You needed the sleep, especially after our trip to the clinic in the middle of the night.”
Kris’s stomach chose that moment to announce it was also awake with loud growl.
Janet chuckled. “I have the solution for that. Sit up,” she told her blushing wife. She then placed a tray across Kris’s lap.
“Breakfast in bed?”
“Well, lunch in bed.”
“Because I love you.”
“Aren’t you supposed to be at work?”
“I’m taking some time off.”
Kris stopped and looked at her wife. “Janet?”
“I’m taking a leave of absence. Except for keeping my promise to Delsie and Taran to deliver their twins, I’m not seeing any patients.”
Janet looked her wife in the eyes. “Because some things are just more important.” [My place is right here with you, beloved. No matter what, we’re going to get through this together.] She reached up and wiped away a tear that made its way down Kris’s cheek.
[I love you so much more than I know how to tell you.]
“I know. My job is pampering you. And making sure you take good care of yourself, so eat your vegetables.”
Janet and Kris didn’t really do much for the next four days. In the meantime, SG-1, particularly Jack, was beginning to wonder just how long it was going to take to find what they’d come to Jidiri to find. They’d already been on Jidiri six days and had no clue what or who they were looking for. Not surprisingly, Jack was the most impatient of the group.
“This place is really getting to me. Everyone is so... nice,” he groused.
“Actually, I like it here. I’ve met a lot of very interesting people,” said Sam.
“I agree. Do you realize there are people here from not only other planets but from other times as well?! This place is a utopia!” exclaimed Daniel.
“There are many people with different backgrounds and yet there is total peace and harmony,” observed Teal’c.
“There’s only so much peace and harmony I can take. Everyone split up. We can cover more ground that way. I want to find this Guardian as soon as possible so we can go home. If you think you’ve found anything use your radios. Otherwise see you back here tonight.” With that Jack marched out the door leaving the other three behind.
The other three went their own ways and planned on having a pleasant day while keeping an eye out for the Guardian. Sam ran into Cayden while she was out walking.
“Are you enjoying your stay with us, Major Carter?” he asked.
She smiled. “Yes, I am, Cayden.”
“Good. Please, just let me know if there is anything I can do to make your stay more comfortable.”
“Actually, I was wondering if I could speak to someone and discuss some of the advancements you’ve made in the medical sciences – specifically parthenogenesis.”
He smiled. “The best place to get such information would be at the clinic. I’ll take you there.” He walked her to the clinic where he spoke to someone. “Just have a seat, Major Carter. Someone will be with you shortly who should be able to answer any questions you may have.”
“Thank you, Cayden.”
“You’re welcome. Have a good day.”
A couple of minutes later Dr. Boson came out. “Major Carter?
The blonde stood. “I’m Major Samantha Carter; you can call me Sam.”
“I’m Dr. Lettie Boson. I’m one of the doctors here. I understand you’re a visitor here and have some questions about some of our medical procedures.”
“Yes, I do. On Earth, where I come from, we haven’t advanced as far as you have with reproductive medicine and we haven’t been able to achieve parthenogenesis. I’d like to see how you’ve accomplished this, if possible.”
“Come with me.”
Sam and Dr. Boson talked for quite a while.
“It sounds like it’s practically full proof,” Sam observed.
“Not by any means,” sighed the doctor. “Don’t get me wrong. It’s made such a big difference for so many couples. Infertile heterosexual couples and female couples can now have children. One of the toughest riddles was figuring out how to make things work for the male couples. But still, there are cases that can just break your heart. Usually the difficult cases are the ones where the couples are not of the same race. Sometimes the DNA just isn’t compatible enough.”
“I can only imagine how difficult it must be in those cases.”
“Those are the cases I get. The majority of the cases are handled by the couples’ regular doctors. The tough cases are referred to me or one of the other doctors that specialize in difficult cases. So when we do succeed it’s a big win, but it’s heartbreaking when we don’t.”
While Sam was talking with Dr. Boson, Kris was also at the clinic visiting Delsie and Taran. Delsie was getting very impatient to have the twins. She had been in the clinic for almost a week and was actually two days past her due date.
It came time for Kris to head home. Janet had been out running a few errands when Kris went to visit with Delsie and she wanted to get home before her wife did, so Kris said goodbye and left. She didn’t get very far. Kris was only a few feet down the hallway when Taran came flying out of the room.
“I think Delsie’s in labor.”
Kris grinned. “Well, it’s about damn time,” she said with a chuckle. She took in Taran’s panicked expression. “Calm down, Taran. I’ll send someone in and I’ll go get Janet.”
Kris stopped at the nurses’ station and told them about Delsie, and then headed home. It was only a short walk.
Janet had arrived home before Kris. She was a little surprised to find that Kris was not at home, but through their bond could sense that everything was fine with her wife. In fact, she could tell that Kris was in a particularly good mood. She suspected that her wife was at the clinic visiting Delsie, so she thought she would go to the clinic and check on her patient anyway. She headed out of the house. The doctor didn’t get very far when she saw someone stop and stare at her from across the way. That person moved slowly towards her, eyes wide open in disbelief.
“Janet?” asked the woman from her past. “Is it really you?”
“Sam? Oh, my god.”
Kris was almost to the house when she saw Janet faint a few feet from their front door. She ran to her, but a tall blonde got to her first and was kneeling next to Janet looking very concerned. Kris recognized the blonde from Janet’s memories, but right at that moment she didn’t really care who Sam was or why she was there.
“What happened?” Kris demanded.
“I don’t know. She just fainted.”
Kris picked her wife up and carried her into the house. She carefully laid Janet on the couch and quickly ran a clean dishcloth under the water. She kneeled next to Janet, laid the cloth across her forehead, and held her hand. “Come on, Janet. Wake up now.” [I’m right here, love.]
Janet’s eyes opened and she looked at her wife.
“Hey there. Want to tell me what happened?”
She let out a deep breath. “I thought I saw Sam.”
[You did, love.] Kris tilted her head towards Sam who had followed the couple inside the house.
Sam gave Janet a half-smile and waved.
“I’m seeing things,” Janet said.
“No. But I know how you feel, Janet,” said Sam. “I thought you were dead.” There was a lot of emotion just barely held in check in her voice.
“I am– I was. I guess we were both surprised.”
“That’s putting it mildly.”
Janet took another deep breath and let it out as she sat up and put her feet on the floor. “How did I get in here?”
“I carried you in,” Kris said.
Janet gave her wife a concerned look. “You know you’re supposed to be taking it easy.”
[I’m alright, love.] “I know. I was careful.”
The doctor looked up at the blonde. “I guess we’ve a got few things to talk about.”
“I hate to spoil your plans, but I was just on my way to let you know that Delsie finally went into labor.”
Janet couldn’t keep from grinning. “Well it’s about damn time.”
Kris returned her grin. “That’s exactly what I said. Anyway, your presence is requested, Doctor.”
Janet sighed. [I was not expecting this. I can’t deal with this right now.]
[It’ll be alright. I’m right here beside you, beloved.]
The doctor stood. “I’m sorry, Sam. We’ll have to talk later, perhaps tomorrow. I have to go deliver a pair of twins.”
“Can I come along?”
“I don’t know how long I’ll be. It could take all night.”
“I don’t care.”
Sam walked on one side of Janet while Kris walked on her other side.
[You really should get some rest, honey,] Janet told her wife.
[I’ll get some rest at the clinic during the wait. I’ll be fine.]
At about 2:00 in the morning the twins were born. Both mothers and babies were doing fine. Sam had radioed in to the colonel that she may have found something. She also told him that she wasn’t coming back to the house that night but that she was perfectly safe and sound.
Kris and Janet headed home around 2:30 with Sam in tow. Kris’s back ached and she knew her wife needed to talk to the blonde, so she took a hot bath and soaked for a bit, giving the other two some privacy.
Janet got herself and Sam something to drink and they sat down in the living room. She looked at the blonde, feeling her stomach do a flip-flop. “So, where do we start?” she asked with some trepidation.
Sam just looked at her for moment. “What the hell happened, Janet? I thought... we all thought, you were dead. You were hit by a staff blast. It was all caught on video.”
The doctor took a deep breath and slowly let it out. “Well, I was killed, but someone with more advanced medical technology was able to resuscitate me and heal my wounds. I woke up here on this planet. I have no idea how I got here.”
“I’ve missed you so much.”
“I’ve missed you, too, Sam. And Cassie. How is Cassie doing?” Janet asked, certain that her daughter had excelled at whatever she’d decided to do with her life.
“As well as can be expected under the circumstances. She misses you. I’ve always been her friend, but you’re her mother. I can’t replace you.” There was a long pause.
“How did you get here?” Janet asked.
“Thor came to the SGC and told us that SG-1 had to go through the stargate to retrieve something. He couldn’t tell us where or when. He said the colonel had the information downloaded into his mind by the Ancients’ repository of knowledge.”
“Didn’t the Asgard remove all of that information?”
“Apparently everything except for the stargate address. It has something to do with some prophecy of the Ancients. Thor also said we’d find something we’d lost. I’m betting that’s you, Janet.” She paused. “You have to come back with us.”
Janet stood up and started pacing.
“I know General Hammond would welcome you back at the SGC. Cassie needs you... I need you, Janet... I love you.”
Janet paced for a few more seconds and then finally stopped. She stared at the fireplace instead of looking at Sam. “No,” she finally said quietly.
Sam couldn’t believe what she’d heard. “What do you mean ‘no’?”
“I mean I can’t go back. At least not right now.”
“Because I can’t go without Kris, and right now she’s needs to be here.”
“What does she have to do with any of this?”
Janet took a deep breath a looked at Sam. “She’s my wife.”
Sam was stunned... and hurt. It took her a several seconds to gather herself. Tears welled in her eyes when she finally spoke. “I see. I guess it didn’t take very long for you to move on.”
The doctor couldn’t miss the pain in the blonde’s voice. She saw the tears in Sam’s eyes and sat next to her on the couch. “Actually, it took me quite a long time,” she said quietly, trying to make Sam understand.
“You’ve only been gone seven months!” Sam said accusingly.
It was Janet’s turn to be stunned.
“Sam, I’ve been here over five years.”
Both women were silent for a while.
Sam, who was much more comfortable when working on a scientific problem or figuring out a puzzle, started thinking out loud. “Okay. Obviously time has passed at different rates for us. Thor did say this planet was a special place. And Cayden said he knew to expect visitors when the stargate appeared – indicating there’s not always a stargate here.”
“Cayden told Kris that Jidiri had no need for any planetary defense, that it’s perfectly safe.”
“Then perhaps it’s the planet that appeared when it was time for us to come here. If Jidiri is normally on a different plane of existence it would explain time passing at a different rate, and why there’s no need for planetary defense.” Sam stopped and shook her head. “Anyway, why did you say she needs to be here?”
Janet let out a sigh before answering her. “She’s pregnant with our child, but it’s a high risk pregnancy. There have already been complications. Even with the advanced medical help available here the odds are against us. On Earth...” she shook her head as her voice trailed off. “We’ve been trying for two years to have a baby. This is our last chance.”
Even though Sam was hurt that she had ‘lost’ Janet a second time, she was still the doctor’s friend. Their friendship had lasted seven years. Her heart went out to Janet. “I understand, and I hope everything turns out okay.” It was obvious that Sam was sincere.
“Thank you.” Janet yawned. “I think it’s time to get some sleep before the sun comes up. You can stay in the guest room.”
Kris came out of the bedroom to get something to drink. Dressed in her pajama bottoms and a tank top, instead of the usual loose fitting pants and pullover shirt, it was obvious she was pregnant. “Sorry to interrupt,” she said.
“Actually, you’re not. We were just going to turn in.” Janet stood, and walked over to her wife. “How does your back feel?”
“A little better.”
Janet took Kris’s hand and started to lead her to their bedroom. “Let’s see if a backrub will help.” At the bedroom door she stopped and pointed to the guest room door (Kris’s old room). “That’s the guest room, Sam. If you need anything just let me know.”
“Thanks. I’m sure I’ll be fine. Good night.” Sam paused. “It was nice meeting you, Kris.” Although sincere, the sadness in Sam’s voice could not be missed.
“Nice meeting you, too, Major.”
Janet gave her wife a nice backrub that took care of the residual soreness. She then lay down next to Kris who then rested her head on the doctor’s shoulder.
“Mmmm, that felt good. Thank you.”
Janet kissed Kris’s forehead. “I like making you feel good.”
Kris’s hand began to wander across her wife’s body until she cupped a breast. She teased her wife’s nipple which became hard. She then bent her head and teased the other with her mouth through the material of Janet’s top, eliciting a quiet moan.
[I like making you feel good, too.]
After a few moments Janet stopped Kris. She pulled Kris’s head up to look into her eyes. “Not that I don’t want you, my love, but Lettie said no strenuous activity.”
Kris smiled. “It’s alright, Janet. I asked her. She said an orgasm wouldn’t hurt me or the baby. She just recommended we avoid swinging from the chandelier for the duration.”
The doctor smiled up at her wife. “Well, damn. So much for that idea.” She caressed Kris’s cheek very lovingly. “There’s never been anything wrong with tender and gentle.”
Kris dipped her head and kissed Janet, who slipped her arms around her wife. Kris reached down to the hem of the doctor’s top and started pulling it up. The doctor broke their kiss just long enough to slip her top off over her head. Kris kissed her way down Janet’s throat, pausing at a sensitive pulse point, but she didn’t take too long before continuing on her way. She stopped her journey and spent lavish attention on Janet’s breasts. The moans and whimpers escaping from her wife’s throat were turning Kris on. She trailed her hand down to the waistband of Janet’s pajama bottoms and carefully slipped her hand inside the pajamas. Janet let out a quiet gasp.
“You’re so wet.”
“That’s what you do to me,” Janet replied.
Kris removed her hand.
“I’m not. I just want to get these clothes out of the way.”
With Janet’s pajama bottoms removed Kris replaced her hand and gently caressed her wife’s slick folds as she sucked on her breasts. It was obvious from Janet’s ragged breath, the volume of her moans, and the way she clung to Kris that she was very, very close to coming. Kris claimed Janet’s mouth with her own in a deep, passionate kiss just as her wife came. They were still kissing as Janet came down from her climax. She was panting when they finally parted.
“You take my breath away,” Janet panted.
Kris smiled and then laid her head over her wife’s heart. Janet ran her fingers through the dark, silky hair.
“Have I ever told you how much I love listening to your heartbeat?” Kris asked.
“No, but you do it a lot.”
“It centers me... it’s hard to explain.” [It has something to do with our bond... I can’t really explain it in words.]
[I think I understand what you mean.]
[Your touch – whether it’s my body, my heart, my mind, or my soul – makes me... better.]
[I know I feel things with you I’ve never felt before. I know you’re as essential to me as breathing. You’re my beloved.]
Kris noticed Janet’s heart rate was approaching normal. She turned her head and starting trailing kisses down her wife’s torso. She dipped her tongue in and out of Janet’s belly button.
“Where are you going?” Janet asked.
Kris glanced up at Janet as she trailed her lips and tongue over a hip bone. “I want to taste you.” She took her time relishing her wife. When Janet neared her climax again Kris slipped a couple of fingers inside her and sucked on her clit. Janet’s thighs closed around Kris’s head and her muscles clamped down on the fingers inside her. She came crying out her wife’s name.
Afterwards they lay on their sides facing each other. Janet caressed Kris’s cheek and gently kissed her.
“I think you have entirely too much clothing on, my love.”
