~~~Three months later~~~
You sighed softly to yourself and rubbed your stomach gently, smiling down at the small bump with affection. It had been three months since the incident with Belarus, and fortunately you nor Ivan had seen or heard from her outside from world meetings, the first of which was slightly more awkward since you and Ivan both made the silent announcement that you now together by walking into the meeting room hand in hand and sitting next to each other, however you had withheld the information that you were pregnant. The reason was simple; you simply wanted to have more information about it so you would be able to answer more of the questions that you were both sure would be asked, and you did not want to cause a huge stir while in the meeting room of another country out of respect, and since there was one coming up soon in Russia, it made more sense to you both to wait.
At the moment you were getting ready for the meeting, currently standing in front of the closet that you and Ivan now shared trying to figure out what you were going to wear. Yes, you had moved in with Ivan– part time at least, you would spend one week in (C/N) and then one week in Russia, bouncing between the two in your effort to balance a relationship and do your duties as a country. Ivan would spend a good deal of time in your country as well, but the fact was he could not get away as much as you could, since his country was so much bigger and there were simply more things for him to attend to.
You planned to move in full time with Ivan once you were further along, but for now you had your duties to tend to, and you needed to get things settled for how you would still fulfill your duties while spending most of your time in Russia.
Ivan walked inside from shoveling the sidewalk clean of snow and rubbed his hands together as he looked around for you, shivering slightly as he warmed up. He had expected to find you in the kitchen, for the past few weeks you had baked, everyday, both while at his house and at your own, and not just one or two things, or even several simple things! They were all complicated dishes that made his mouth water, and made the house smelled like a bake shop, and now that he stood looking around at all of the baskets of baked goods, he realized the kitchen looked like one too.
Since you had baked so many things, many of them being common foods in other countries you and Ivan had put them together as gift baskets for the other countries, since it was nearing the holiday season, so now you had literally dozens upon dozens of baskets of baked goods, honestly Ivan had no idea how you two would get them all to the meeting.
"Sunflower? Where are you? We need to get going soon or we will be late."
"I'm upstairs Ivan! I can't decide what to wear, nothing looks good on me…"
You could hear Ivan chuckling as he made his way up the stairs, his footsteps echoing in the quite house, it seemed the Baltic's were either asleep or in hiding, granted their lives had gotten much easier since you had moved in, because you had calmed Ivan down greatly.
As soon as Ivan walked into the room you turned to look at him and planted your hands firmly on your round hips and tried to look irritated. Note that you tried to look irritated, it was not very successful, and as soon as he came up and wrapped his arms around you before gently kissing the top of your head you lost it and could not help but smile.
"Come on Ivan. This is a serious matter, I can't figure out what to wear, I look awful in everything I wear."
"That is true, I suppose."
You pushed away from Ivan with tears misting in your eyes as you tried to move away from him, only to have him catch your hand and pull you towards him.
"I'm not finished yet _________. I think you look much better without anything on, do you have any idea how hard it is to see you in the kitchen or around the house under all these layers, knowing what is underneath and how beautiful you are?"
You smiled a little and returned his embrace, you had to admit to yourself that you should have seen that coming, you had done the same thing to him three months ago.
"Don't do that, I thought you didn't like the way I looked…"
"But it is was true. Now then, we need to figure out what you are going to wear da? I don't want anyone else seeing you the way I have."
You blushed softly and nodded before wiggling out of Ivan's grasp and going back over to the closet to look through your things before being joined by Ivan just a few moments later.
