I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
The pregnancy descriptions make me shiver. I can't help it, all the "feeling the baby move" stuff makes me think of Aliens. One reason why I have no plans to ever get pregnant, and why telling me "but one day you'll change your mind" horrifies me. But soon Elizabeth will give birth and then poor Cecily will finally be able to get married again, hopefully to someone she likes or can learn to like.
Drunk Cecily is great, by the way. Well, from my perspective. For her sake, it's probably best if she doesn't get drunk very often.
