* Alex goes to the doctor for a standard physical exam for her new job, only to be told that she's perfectly healthy, but also pregnant. Needless to say, this is a bit of a shock and it takes her a few minutes to come to terms with the information, but, ultimately, she decides she's okay with it and is keeping the child (more than a little shocked at the doctor's seemingly swift offer for termination procedure - Alex will be finding a new doctor).
* New doctor - is female and not a moron. Not even a suggestion for termination. Obviously the previous doctor sees a lot of idiots as patients. Alex was not impressed. She is much more impressed with the new doctor.
( Fin visits... etc )
* Alex calls Olivia Benson and tells her about the pregnancy and her decision to keep the baby and some other small-talk, girl-talk topics before she hands the phone to Fin and promptly falls asleep. Very tired lady.
( Greg's Music... )
* This is where the part about Alex telling Olivia that she's tired of being pregnant and they discuss the piano and baby names, with Olivia insisting that Alex not name the baby after a fruit would go. Next is the part when it's time to go, then the whole having of the baby. Alex refuses to recant every moment of those experiences and suggests it all be summed up instead, in favor of moving to the less painful parts of the story.
( Greyden Dorothy... )
* Fin drives Alex home from the hospital and seems much more excited than she does about the baby seeing the newly decorated nursery that is done in Curious George (Fin's idea). They get settled and Alex speaks to her mother, finding out that she's coming for a visit, which Alex doesn't mind, except that her mother will want to meet the baby's father and the father is a bit 'out of contact' at the moment. Of course, during this conversation about her mother with Fin, there's a knock at the door - spoooooky. It's just Michael, no big, except for the testosterone war between the two that Alex has to smack-down with estrogen and mood swings.
* Mom comes to visit and isn't nearly as concerned about 'daddy' as Alex thought she might be. Apparently 'grandchild' is far more important.
Having paid visits to everyone she needed to see - and Munch's gift had been greatly appreciated: baby sitting while she went to a day spa with Liv - and having spoken to her mother, she returned to her Manhattan apartment (the one Michael told her to keep). She was rested and refreshed. Greyden was bundled up and strapped into her carrier and Alex had the other baby-amenities she required. They were ready to go. All she had to do was follow Michael's instructions and the doorway should be open for her.
Softly, Alex pressed a kiss to the top of Greyden's head, brushed a hand over her baby-fine, yellow-gold hair, then closed her eyes as she took that all-important step from her kitchen to her living room.
The ambient sounds were different suddenly and, for a moment, she thought something had gone wrong, but when she opened her eyes, she was faced with a heavy wooden door. A familiar wooden door. "Here we go," she whispered and pushed the door open to the familiar setting of Milliways Bar...
