The aroma of coffee and baked goods welcomes us as we step inside the cafe. Thomas stands in line to order for us while I find us a booth.

We had an appointment for my four months check up this morning. I took the day off, and Thomas got the okay from my dad to go in late. They've fixed their relationship and are back to where they started - kind of.

It's the beginning of September and summer has officially ended. We still have summer-like weather for a couple more weeks. It's just incredibly annoying to have to wear tight clothing.

My bump grew from one day to another and I don't fit into any of my clothes. I went out the other day to buy two pairs of maternity shorts and bigger shirts. But I didn't realize how much it was going to lower my self-esteem.

Especially around my friends, I find myself being self-conscious. But I'm also reminded that it's completely normal and I'm doing great.

Thomas comes back with an iced coffee for himself, and a raspberry tea for me. He also got us a freshly made chocolate chip cookie each.

"Thank you, " I say.

He smiles back, breaking his cookie in half. I do the same, enjoying the music playing from the record player in the front.

I stir my tea with my straw, excited for today.

Thomas must have noticed how big my smile is. "Do you want me to come with?" He asks. "I can take the day off." He peers at me through his lashes.

I press my lips together, looking down briefly. "Chase is actually coming with me, " I tell him.

He nods solemnly, before quickly hiding it. "I'm always here if you need me."

"Thanks, " I say with a small smile.

We finish our drinks and toss our trash away. Chase is meeting me here since one of the apartments are close to the cafe. I've decided to at least find one that isn't an hour away from my parents or my friends.

I figured that meeting them halfway is better than having to drive over an hour each time.

Holding the door open for me, Thomas leads me to my car. I hold my stomach subconsciously, a smile c

ad back again. "I don't feel it, " I admit.

His brow is raised but he doesn't say anything. I feel like a completely different person with how much of a wreck I have been recently.

With a sudden rush, I sit up and beam at him. "Okay, let's go see the last two places. I'll figure out the rest from there."

"That's what I like to hear." He grins.

I watch him climb out of my car and get into his. I follow behind him, feeling extremely lucky that he came. Chase doesn't work today but he does have a class in two hours so we have to do this now.

I go in open-minded and remind myself that it isn't the end of the world if I don't like any of them. No one is rushing me to move out, in fact, Alice has been begging me to stay.

I don't want to bother her with a newborn and I would like to have room to put their things in. So in the end, I kind of need my own place.

We stop by my apartment afterward before Chase has to go to class.

I'm not disappointed about not finding an apartment, I'll just keep an eye out. Lounging on the couch with Chase is better than being out in the heat anyway.

I've been stressing myself out way too much lately.

Sadly we make it halfway through a movie before he leaves. I'm left alone again, contemplating going to work but decided against it.

Sleeping sounds more appealing to me right now.
