Summary: Teyla hasn't been feeling all that well.

Despite the good work that Lieutenant Weatherly did on Sheppard's team, when the group had met and helped the runner that had managed to survive the wraith for as long as he did, John had to make the painful decision to move the skilled colleague for a wild card that was did not receive as warm of a welcome by Dr. Weir as John had hoped.

Ronon was working out though which was a plus but Teyla's focus had been slipping of the late. John had wanted to try to talk to her about it but she would disappear before he could catch her attention long enough. Even when he asked, without actually asking, about staying over, she turned him down stating that just wished to sleep. He couldn't help but to be put off by it but remained silent.

After several days of rough nights, nausea, heartburn and general discomfort, Teyla finally took a stand against her mind and went to visit the infirmary. Laying on the bed in the medical scrubs, uncomfortable as she waited for Dr. Beckett's review of the tests he took. Aside from John, he was maybe the only other male of the Lantean people that she could find herself confiding in. He had a softness about him that was evident in his eyes and it was about all that was capable of putting some of her anxiety at ease.

"Ah, lass," Carson smiled as he pulled the curtain back. "I have the results, but first, if you wish to drink this, it will help ease some of the heartburn for tonight but I do not recommend anything else in the future."

"Thank you Doctor," she smiled as she sipped the odd tasting pink liquid. "What is wrong with me?"

The man smiled as he studied her closely. "Have you experienced any other changes?" he questioned softly. "Especially such with your monthly friend?"

Teyla thought about it shrugged. "No. Not really. My bleed was lighter this cycle but it has been regular otherwise. Why?"

"Lass, you have a wee one beginning to grow inside you. From what I can gather, you should be expecting to give birth in about 28 weeks," Carson explained. "I have some vitamins here for you to take but I do recommend that you inform Major Sheppard soon so that he may find a replacement for you on the team when you are unable to participate in missions."

"Why would I been unable to participate?" she asked with confusion. "I am expecting yes? Not incapable."

Carson sighed as he helped her sit up. "I understand that but from where we come from, pregnant ladies are considered a bit fragile and the men care for them where they can. I am not saying that you are incapable of performing the majority of your duties but it is just what we do. I am sorry."

Sighing, Teyla nodded. "Very well. Thank you Dr. Beckett. I really just wish to return to my room for the night. Hopefully I will be able to rest comfortably tonight. Goodnight."

In returning to her quarters, the weight of the news hit her hard. Many thoughts on how it would affect her relationship with the Lanteans, her own people, and most importantly John. The little they had shared of his past, he had never said anything about children and while they each would know that the infant was his, the fallout with the rumors around the City would explode like a virus.

She could not return to her room quick enough, when she fell to her hands and knees, her blood rushing to her head and the sensation of dizziness overcame her.
