Chapter 1623: I Know He’s Still Alive (4)
"You don't believe it, right?" Professor Luo laughed.
"Yes, it's hard to believe..." Huo Mian couldn't calm herself down.
She couldn't get pregnant for the longest time, but now, twins? It was all too much...
"The fetuses are still small＃ They're not fully formed yet, but the good thing is I can hear their heartbeats. Although this is great news for you, it's also going to be a lot of work from now on. You're a doctor and you've worked in the OB/GYN department. You should know that twins always arrive early. They'll most likely arrive seven to eight months into the pregnancy. It's a lot of work on your body＃ you need to be prepared."
"I know, I'll be careful." Huo Mian's eyes were sparkling with tears.
Qin Chu would probably jump up with joy if he found out about this, right?
There was also her mother and father-in-law＃ Their precious little grandchildren were finally coming.
It was rare to see any emotions on Huo Mian's face, much less excitement.
Her personality was truly cold＃ but now?
The person in front of Professor Luo was not a gifted doctor. She was nothing but a young girl who was crying from too much happiness.
Because she was so excited and nervous, Huo Mian's hands folded on top of one another, her fingers laced tightly together as if she was praying for something.
"But I'm puzzled＃ you've been pregnant for so long, someone should have found out about this when you were originally taken to prison. Why don't they have a record of this? If we didn't examine you here, your pregnancy would've gone unnoticed."
Professor Luo furrowed his brows...
Huo Mian shuddered at the thought...
She said slowly, "Maybe＃ someone doesn't want the news of my pregnancy to spread, so they kept it hidden."
Huo Mian's first guess was that Mayor Song had somehow manipulated the situation.
Otherwise, with the amount of time that she had been pregnant, they would've discovered her pregnancy a long time ago; a urine test would've clearly shown the results.
A blood withdrawal would've been even more obvious＃ The progesterone level of a pregnant woman is much higher than that of an average woman.
"Since you're pregnant, you should be very well-rested. I've already sent up the required documents proving your pregnancy and requested for out-of-prison pregnancy treatment. This will delay your execution date by a long time and you can use this time to come up with an escape plan."
"Thank you, Professor."
"Don't thank me＃ I'm just doing what was asked of me＃ Otherwise, I wouldn't have the power to pull you out of jail. If the higher-ups approve your release, you'll be able to head home tomorrow. The commander will send people to Jing City to pick you up."
"That's great." Huo Mian couldn't help but get excited at the thought of going home and reuniting with Qin Chu.
"You should get some rest now＃ whatever you want to eat, let the others know. A pregnant woman needs her nutrients."
"Okay." Huo Mian nodded without hesitation.
If hospitals allowed cellphones, she would've called Qin Chu immediately to share the good news.
She then realized that Qin Chu was probably already in the U.S＃ because, before her arrest, she sought out both Jiang Xiaowei and Rick to make sure of that.
Huo Mian's thoughts ran wild again...
With the knowledge of the pregnancy, Huo Mian ate a lot during dinner, which was a rare sight to see.
- That night, inside the Su Estate -
Grandpa Su picked up the phone with a heavy expression on his face.
"Are you absolutely sure?" he asked.
"Alright, I got it." With that, Grandpa Su hung up the phone.
He then walked into the family's memorial hall, where Su Yu was still kneeling...
"Straighten your back!" Grandpa Su scolded the repenting Su Yu.
