Why in the world would they cut Renesmee out? If they would do that they just shouldn't even make BD. I would rather that then have them slaughter BD.

I don't understand why anyone would be upset she kept the baby. It's living thing and having an abortion is murder. I loved how they are a happy family now w/a baby. (And Edward can't feel guilty about taking that away from Bella!)

BTW:Stephenie address the issue of Bella keeping her baby on the BD FAQ page on her webiste. http://stepheniemeyer.com/bd_faq.html
Yes, abortion is murder. I am a strong Christian and believe such. However, this is a fictional story, so the morality of her decision isn't really an issue.

Also, you can't draw comparissons from a real pregnancy to this in the way of danger to the mother. In real life, the chances of dieing in childbirth is extremely low in a hospital setting with doctors present. This is different, Renesmee was literally sucking the life right out of her, and if Jacob hadn't inspired Edward to a solution through his thoughts when he did, she would have died. From Edward's perspective, I can see why he would be more concerned about Bella than the allegedly crazed monster who was tearing to shreds from the inside out.

Finally, addressing the rapid switch from innocent to sex-crazed Bella...THEY WERE MARRIED...so it really shouldn't bother anyone. She takes good care of Renesmee, the fact of the matter is that she was already sleeping straight through the night, unlike a real baby after that short amount of time...Nessie doesn't need to be taken care of in the middle of the night, and she loves Edward...what's so shocking about them craving for each other? If you are in a marriage where you never found your spouse sexually attractive even in the early stages...that's a sad marriage, in my opinion.

I didn't like it at all. I can't really imagine Bella as a mom, or Edward being a dad. I would have liked it better off. Way too fictional for me that pregnancy (:

I think why some people can't imagine them as parents is because we've never given them the chance to be. We never thought they would. But I settled into that idea fairly quickly.

I agree...once the shock wore off of what had happened- I actually allowed myself to accept them as parents

I guess I'm part of the minority, but I loved all of BD and I really loved the whole story line of Bella and Edward as parents!! :D

Just a hopeless romantic...

From everything I read, it seems like the studio OFFICIALLY announced New Moon and Eclipse only so far...I really hope they figure out a way to do BD effectively because it would be strange to stop after Eclipse--at least for us crazy fans ;)

I heard that New Moon will be released on November 20, 2009. What about Eclipse? Have you guys heard if Eclipse will be released in 2010 or 2011?

Hardly an intelligent statement...unless you believe vampires walk among us, the entire book is way too fictional...that's why it's called fiction :roll:

Good one, though.

Here here Jazz.

I was angry with the pregnancy at first. Sure I wondered how it happened, but I mainly thought "WHY did that have to happen so soon? They just got married!" And they were finally just starting to have sex.. :lol: It went downhill from there. Jacob's POV wasn't my favorite, Edward was absolutely miserable, and Bella was dying... I really didn't like BD at that point. Then, of course, everything fell into place. I know it's fiction, but it was interesting to read SM's explanation of the pregnancy. Nessie really is a perfect addition. Not only did she lead to Bella's transformation, but Bella and Edward actually got to have a child together! It's like having my cake and eating it too. :)
