Kurt let out a shaky laugh when Blaine made a comment on the baby being cute, continuing to coach Blaine through his breathing. Once the contraction was over, he switched hands so that he could brush Blaine’s hair back from his sweaty forehead once his contraction was over. He smiled at Blaine when he looked over at him, kissing his hand. “You’re doing such a great job. I know you’re hurting but you’re doing great, honey.” He placed his hand on Blaine’s cheek about to tell him to think happy thoughts, when Dr. Evans spoke up. He tried not to laugh when Blaine practically bit the doctor’s head off. He was right in being upset though because the medicine was taking it’s time to numb Blaine’s pain. Kurt suddenly felt Blaine squeeze his hand once more and helped him to put his head on his stomach as he pushed. He could feel Blaine’s body tremble as he pushed and whispered words of encouragement in his ear. ”You can do this, Blainey… Five more seconds and you can relax. 5…4…3…2…1!” He coached Blaine, taking a deep breath when Blaine relaxed against the bed again. He could tell how exhausted his husband looked and he turned towards Dr. Evans. “Do you think it would be easier if I sat behind Blaine on the bed? I noticed that halfway through the contraction, he was starting to struggle to stay in position.” He smiled over at Blaine. “That’s up to Blaine. I’ve had other couples who have tried that position and found it very helpful to have their partner support and guide them like that. But some people would rather prefer to have their partner stay put. Although, the pregnant individuals who rather have their partners stay put are also yelling at them for touching them.” Dr. Evans chuckled. “Do you wanna try that, Blaine?” 

Blaine was grateful for Kurt’s coaching during the next contraction. He pushed as hard as he could just wishing that the baby would come out already. He knew he shouldn’t be getting impatient because this was just the beginning, but he had three babies to give birth to and it hurt so much! When the contraction was over he relaxed against the bed letting Kurt and the doctor talk and not paying much attention. He gave Kurt a weak smile as he saw him looking at him, and squeezed his hand lightly. He looked at Kurt’s hand concerned when he saw that it was bright red, and felt ashamed when he realized that he had probably done it. He was about to apologize when he heard the doctor talking to him. “Okay?” He asked not sure what they were talking about. He knew he made the right decision when he felt Kurt climb on the bed behind him and hold him up as his next contraction came. Having Kurt hold him didn’t make it hurt any less, but it definitely making pushing easier. He could hear Kurt directly in his ear coaching him as well. When the contraction was over, he collapsed against Kurt and turned his head into Kurt’s neck. It was his favorite place to put his head because he could distinctly smell Kurt, which in his opinion was the most relaxing scent on earth.  He kept his head there until the next contraction came. His face scrunched up in pain as he pushed. This particular contraction seeming to hurt the most “We are never having sex again!” Blaine screamed eyes tearing up as he tried to push as hard as he could. Once the contraction ended his head found it’s place against Kurt’s neck “Never ever ever ever, Kurt Hummel” Blaine muttered  tears still leaking out of his eyes.

Kurt smiled as Blaine took his hand, using his free hand to wipe his cheek when he admitted he was just scared. He was about to kiss his cheek but was interrupted when the nurse appeared. He let out a sigh of relief when she told them that she was gonna administer the anesthesia already. He helped Blaine roll onto his side and held him in place when he was asked to do so. He was glad that Blaine couldn’t see his face because when he saw how thick and long the needles were, his eyes widened. He bit his lip as he watched the nurse insert the needles, having to close his eyes when she got to the second needle. But before he knew it, she was done and telling him he could let go. He gently nodded at Blaine’s comment. “It probably will and that’s why they wanted to wait until you were here to give it to you.” He assured Blaine, hoping he was right. He smiled as he lightly traced his finger along Blaine’s wedding ring. “I can’t believe in the span of two weeks, we got married and are becoming new parents.” He added before Dr. Evans walked over to them. Kurt suddenly realized that it was time and took a deep breath, knowing that he needed to be Blaine’s rock. He listened closely to the doctor, remembering everything from their Lamaze class. He was so focus on the doctor’s directions that when Blaine suddenly gripped his hand, he gasped. He was sure that the medicine had definitely not started working when Blaine started screaming as he pushed. Once it was over, Kurt quickly moved his fingers to make sure they still worked. He kept his mouth shut when Blaine’s mood suddenly changed from being scared to being mad at the doctor for not being clear earlier. He was lucky that Blaine wasn’t angry with him because if looks could kill, Dr. Evans would be dead! He knew that Blaine explained his anger as being upset that he wouldn’t be able to see the babies after their born but he had a feeling it was more about the fact that they waited until Blaine was minutes from giving birth to tell him he couldn’t have his mother there. “How about we focus on having these babies rather than who should be mad at who.” He tried to ease the tension, noticing the glare on Blaine’s face. 

Blaine gave Kurt a weak smile when he tried to defuse the situation. He relaxed against the bed, not looking at the doctor as he waited for the next contraction to begin.  When it was time, Blaine squeezed Kurt’s hand hard trying to breath and push the baby out. “God! Ow, ow  ow!! You better be cute!” Blaine sobbed through his pain. “That’s it, take a deep breath and push” The doctor coached. “I’m trying too!” Blaine snapped giving another push, until the contraction ending. He relaxed against the bed turning his head towards Kurt with tears in his eyes reminding himself what he was going through all this pain for. “It might be helpful to put your head on your stomach while you push.” Dr Evans commented as they waited. Blaine turned to him with a look of anger “It might have been helpful to give me the medicine sooner so I’m not in so much pain too!” He just patted Blaine’s leg with a smile. “It will kick in soon.”

Kurt rubbed the back of Blaine’s neck as he continued to cry into his shirt, not too sure that what he said was true. He hoped that Dr. Evans would say that Blaine’s mother was welcome to join then in the delivery room but he had a feeling that wasn’t going to the case. He perked up when he saw the doctor but the frown on his face told him that he had bad news. His heart broke for Blaine and let go of his husband when Mrs. Anderson spoke up. He wanted to plead and beg Dr.Evans to let her stay with Blaine and him, watching Blaine start to sob as he clung to his mother. He tried to hold back his own tears as Blaine pleaded with the doctor, hating to see Blaine so upset. But when he explained the reason, Kurt could see where the hospital was coming from. He could understand why they’d want only him in the room with Blaine. When Dr.Evans brought up the fact that Blaine could have his mom there if he wanted, he felt a little afraid that Blaine choose his mom over him. Blaine was very close to his mom and let’s be honest, she’d probably be better at coaching. But these were his babies! He had every right to be in the delivery room! But Blaine’s hesitation only made him realize that he might have to sacrifice his own feelings to make Blaine happy. He was about to speak up when Blaine was hit with another contraction. He immediately coached Blaine with his breathing, whispering words of encouragement until he felt his body start to relax. He gave Blaine’s mother a small smile when she made the choice for him, hoping that she was right about Blaine needing him more than her. They quickly rolled Blaine away from while a nurse directed him towards a room with an industrial sized sink, handing him a set of scrubs. “You wanna quickly change into your scrubs and then I can show you how to properly wash up.” Kurt nodded, taking the scrubs and changing behind a curtain. Once he was done, she helped him scrub his hands and lower arms to make sure he was thoroughly sanitized. She then reached up to place a cap over his hair and slip on his shoe protectors. “There you go! You’re set to become a dad! Just remember, don’t touch the handle of the door when you enter the room. All you have to do is push with your shoulder.” Kurt nervously nodded making his way to the delivery room. He entered the room and immediately saw Blaine crying. He felt bad, wondering if Blaine was still upset that his mom wasn’t here. “Blaine, honey, I know you wanted your mom here but I promise, you can do this. And I know I’m just as nervous and scared but I’ll help you through this.”

Blaine’s eyes immediately found Kurt as he entered the room. He nodded his head when Kurt spoke and grabbed his hand when he got close enough. “I know, sweetheart. It’s just…the gravity of everything just hit me hard. And I know, you’ll be here with me, but I’m just really scared.” Blaine admitted not wanting to draw attention to anything in the room. He didn’t want to upset Kurt as well.  A nurse appeared on Blaine’s other side “Okay, I’m going to need you to roll onto your side into the foetal position towards dad, alright daddy?” Blaine nodded following the instructions. “Dad, can you hold him in that position for me?” The nurse asked, waiting for Kurt to follow the instructions “Now don’t move a muscle, daddy” Blaine was about to nod, but thought better of it. The nurse pushed a needle into the proper place on his spine and let the medicine take effect. She grabbed the next needle and did the same thing. The next needle was injected a little lower than the first two, but was also soon done. “Alright you can let go dad. The anesthesia should take effect soon” The nurse told them brightly before going to throw the needles in the medical waste bin. “I hope it starts working fast. The contractions just keep hurting worse every time” Blaine sighed squeezing Kurt’s hand as he rolled back onto his back. Blaine tried to keep his focus on Kurt as they continued to set up the delivery room. When it was almost time to start, Dr. Evans gave them a quick refresher from their lamaze class. “When the contractions hit Blaine, you need to take a deep breath and then push down. Can you do that for me?” Blaine nodded following his direction and screaming, his hand squeezing Kurt’s hand hard when he felt a contraction start. Dr. Evans gave him a thumbs up once the contraction ended and positioned Blaine’s body the correct way so they could start. “Okay, you’re completely dilated. So we’ll start when your next contraction hits.” Blaine gave him a dirty look “I thought we already did start!” He gave Blaine an amused smile and turned to Kurt. “You’re pretty lucky, usually by now the pregnant person is mad at the dad, not the doctor.” “He’s how I’m going to find out about my babies until you let me out of this stupid hospital bed.” Blaine glared “Now, Now no one said you weren’t going to see them at all” Blaine continued to glare at him.

Kurt didn’t expect Blaine to deepen the kiss but happily welcomed it, moving closer and placing his hand on Blaine’s belly. When he heard Mrs. Anderson clear his throat, he quickly pulled away but kept his hand on his belly. It sudden dawned on him that he would be able to see their little faces very soon. No more talking to Blaine’s belly and having the only evidence of their children be kicks against his hands. He really hoped that they would be okay. He knew that the NICU was amazing in this hospital but he was still dreading the fact that their babies would even have to spend time there. But if they need to spend time in NICU in order to build up their strength and get healthy, than he’d spend every waking hour in that room with them so that they’d know they weren’t alone. He removed his hand when the nurse came in and immediately stood up, feeling his palms start to get clammy. They were really doing this… Blaine was having the babies. He quickly wiped his hands on his pants as the nurse started moving Blaine, giving him a nervous smile when his husband took his hand. He stayed by Blaine’s side as they made their way down the hallways of the hospital, staying silent. He felt his heart race as the nurse stopped and told him he had to say goodbye for a bit. But his anxiousness only heightened when the nurse looked confused at Blaine’s request to have his mom in there with him. Once she left, he looked over at Blaine’s mom with a frown. Dr. Evans had promised that Blaine could have his mother in there, so he was a little nervous that he changed his mind. He quickly noticed Blaine start to freak out and immediately tried to calm him. “Shh, it’s okay, Blainey. Let’s just see what they say. Maybe he just forgot to make the note in your chart.”

Blaine nodded at Kurt’s words but still continued to cry as his contraction ended. He held onto Kurt tightly and turned his head to hide his face in Kurt’s stomach. After a minute, Dr Evans came rushing out of the room, and let out a small sigh of defeat giving them a frown. He gave Blaine’s mom a look and she nodded sadly in acceptance. “Blainey, mahal?” Blaine turned his head to look at her his eyes wide “I’m going to go wait with-” “No! I need you here!” Blaine immediately latched onto her sobbing uncontrollably. She returned his hug and rubbed his back. “It’s okay, you can do this.” “But mama!” Blaine pleaded “You said you’d be here!” She looked heartbroken, so Dr Evans piped up. “I’m sorry, Blaine. I really tried, but the hospital thinks there needs to be enough people in there for you and the triplets.” Blaine looked at him feeling betrayed “You said she could be there! You said so at my first appointment” Blaine accused through his tears. “That was when we only knew about one of the babies and thought you’d go to full term. I even had it in the works that if the babies were born a few weeks from now, they could both be there. But the hospital thinks it’s too risky now to have an extra person.” Blaine gave him a defeated look all the fight running out of him. He couldn’t be mad that they were just trying to protect the babies. “You do have an option of having your mom there though.” Dr Evans offered knowing Blaine wouldn’t want it, but putting the option out there. Blaine’s head snapped up confused. “You just said she couldn’t be there!” His mom rubbed his back sadly. “He’s saying you have the option of having me or Kurt there.” Blaine mouth snapped open in shock. He had to decided between his mom and his husband?! He looked over at his mom and Kurt incredibly conflicted. “But I-” Blaine cut off as another contraction hit and he grabbed onto Kurt’s hand tightly hiding his face in Kurt’s stomach as he cried out and breathed through the pain. When he was able to think clearly through the pain again, he felt his mom rubbing his back. “I’ll be in the waiting room with all your friends, mahal. You need Kurt more than you need me.” Blaine started to protest, but quickly gave up and fell back against the bed. He didn’t know he could have even made the choice. He was quickly rolled into the room where the nurses prepared everything as they waited for Kurt and Dr Evans to come in. “Do you want to wait for your husband to come in to get the epidural, daddy?” Blaine nodded briefly, wishing he had Kurt’s hand to hold onto. Just the sight of all the medical equipment scared him. There were even three boxes that looked like incubators. Blaine let himself cry as he realized the hospital thought his babies needed to be in an incubator once they were born.

Kurt scrunched his nose when Blaine kissed it but sobered up when the nurse came in. He sat up straight and moved his legs off the bed, not wanting to get in the nurse’s way. He chewed his bottom lip as she checked how dilated Blaine was, wondering if he was still 7cm. He noticed the nurse looked concerned and he felt his stomach clench. Was something wrong? He gave an small shrug when she asked about Blaine’s contractions, not sure since he was more focused on helping Blaine through the contractions rather than time them. So when Blaine’s mother answered, he was relieved that she was paying attention. When he heard the answer out loud, he realized that Blaine’s contractions were really close together. So, when the nurse announced that Blaine was already at 9cm, he could believe they were already at that point but it still made his stomach drop. He nervously smiled and thanked the nurse when she said she was going to get everything ready and send someone to get them. He felt Blaine squeeze his hand tightly and he looked down at him. “Yup, this is probably the last couple time that we’re going to be just KurtandBlaine.” He smiled, leaning down to kiss Blaine.

Blaine grinned as Kurt kissed him, letting his hand come up to cup Kurt’s cheek and deepened it wanting to enjoy what might be their last kiss as just husbands. They heard someone clearing their throat and Blaine blushed as they pulled away. “Sorry mama.” Blaine muttered looking over at her embarrassed. “It’s alright, mahal. Some of your friends comments about you two are starting to make a little more sense.” She leaned over and squeezed Blaine’s hand. “I just regret that you didn’t feel comfortable enough at home to express yourselves as freely.” Blaine’s face softened and wanted to object that it wasn’t her fault, but was interrupted before he started by a nurse coming in.  ”I hear your babies are impatiently waiting to born?” The nurse asked brightly going around his bed to disconnect anything that couldn’t go with them. Blaine gave her a nod as a sudden wave of fear hit him. He was doing this. He was about to have three babies! “Okay let’s go daddy!” The nurse told him happily as she started to pull the bed out the room, unconcerned about his sudden look of fear. She’d seen that look so many times right before a baby was born. As the started to move, Blaine grabbed onto Kurt’s hand tightly unwilling to let go. They made their way down a few hallways before the bed stopped in front of a metal door. “Alright, daddy you’ll have to say goodbye for now so dad can scrub up.” Blaine quickly piped up “And my mom.” The nurse looked down at his chart and flipped through a few pages with a frown on her face. “Could you excuse me for a minute?” The nurse walked through a side door and disappeared. Blaine looked over at his mom and Kurt terrified “What’s going on? Dr. Evans has said from the beginning that you both could be there.” Blaine started to tear up and squeezed Kurt’s hand hard as he started to sob and another contraction hit. His breathing was slightly labored as he let the tears falls down his face while he tried to breath through the pain.
