He pushed, unable to wait on her as the egg then popped out of him harshly, fluids splashing out after it. She barely caught it, having had to drop the knife, but managed to catch the egg before it fell on the hard rocks. Ferris then collapsed and gasped for air, his chest heaving as he looked between his legs.
Some will see this dynamic as a stereotypical reproduction of male/female gender roles, with the man as the earner and the female as the carer. Another perspective might be one to view an Alpha’s caring nature and their more sensitive side as “new masculinity” as opposed to ‘tough’, ‘unfeeling’ men from the past. I have read fics that have Alphas struggle with society’s expectations of them as emotionally stoic and macho, with Omegas valuing their mate because he is “not like the other Alphas/like the stereotypical Alpha”. I’ve also read stories in which the Omega finds themselves appreciating ‘classic’ Alpha trades – which is often explained by their biological wiring.
Having caught his breathe as much as he was going to, Adam had to continue to push hoping very soon this huge egg would come out, “Nnnnnghhhh….aaahhhhh….ooohhhh….help me gawd please!!!!!!!!!!” Adam screamed into the other room hoping the man would hear him and be able to help.
“G-Get it out then!” Francis shouted, writhing in the water. “I don’t care..haa…reach in and pull the fucker out if you have to!” He swore loudly, feeling his opening start to split and bleed as the baby forced itself out.
He held his vibrating belly, feeling the contracting muscles under his fingertips and palms while he bore down. The masses in his vagina and anus were pushed down slowly at the same time, but not much progress was made from the one contraction. “Make it stop…!” He fell back with a pained cry.

After a bout of ill health his father seems ready to pass the torch at any moment. Unfortunately, the timing couldn’t be any worse. Rocco has only just decided that he needs to part ways with his current boyfriend Skye, but he’s going to need a mate in order for the pack to accept him fully as Alpha—not to mention fend off evil rival Jarvis’ challenge to his status.
The case of Sanju Bhagat, also known as Sanjay Kumar, a man from Nagpur, India, attracted attention in 1999 for the length of time (36 years) he had carried his parasitic twin inside his body, and the size of the growth. Since Bhagat had no placenta, the growth had connected directly to his blood supply. In an extremely unusual case, a 2-year-old boy became pregnant with his parasitic twin inside his stomach feeding off him like a fetus would feed on its mother. The boy required a Caesarean section. It is virtually impossible that the fetus could survive this process due to being underdeveloped.
Raising our young is a difficult process. To limit emotional attachment, we are not permitted to raise our own children. The moment they are born, a couple steps up to take them away. You don’t even get to hear them cry. This, like our deadened feelings, is also for a good cause. Handfuls of my species adopt multiple offspring, while those who are too irresponsible cannot corrupt young minds. In a sense, everybody wins.

Sonic sighed as he entered his apartment. He closed the door behind him. He was living in the bad side of Knothole. Not only that, he just found out he’s pregnant. He also was kicked out the team before that.
