This page is kind of a last minute addition. Originally, the scene was going to switch here, but I was noticing Rain looking at Emily's belly in the last panel of the previous page, and this idea just came to me.
I'll explain if need be, but I'm hoping the page can just do the talking itself on this one.
Also, I just want to shout a quick thank you to everyone who wished me happy birthday yesterday (or drew fanart, or bought a book, or gifted me a Steam game, or whatever other super nice thing you did). I'm trying to thank everyone, but it's hard keeping up, so I just wanted a general thanks out there. :)

And RedBubble is having a sitewide sale today, with all merchandise being 20% when using the coupon code TACOTIME. I've got Rain t-shirts and stickers and mugs and more.
Lulu is also having a sale. A peculiar 27% off all print books (like Volumes 1, 2, and 3) when using the coupon code MAYMON27. Don't forget, that is case-sensitive.
Both of these deals are today only, so don't miss out. ^_^
I probably know why shes crying... She's probably thinking about how she likely won't ever be able to get pregnant herself. ...Cause that's what I'd be thinking :/
And Emily surpassed Rudy in Page Appearances with this page!
Don't worry. You'll be great mothers.
I think k this relates to what rain said when she was little she wanted to be a mom
@Hu: started reading this comic two days ago, but I think it's finally come full circle
@Guest: (mind blown)
@Hu: Oh my god... Did you just... Damn that's well spotted! I think my heart just did a thousand flips!
Gah this page is sweeter than a twinkie dipped in sugar
@Dark Queen of Nerds: Although I get the point, that doesn't sound tasty. Too much of anything is still too much.
@Author Jakes: Well I didn't say that a twinkie dipped in sugar was necessarily tasty xD Just sweet.
I'd rather eat Nutella straight from the jar, personally...
don't know how rain will handle it but when i accepted my true self i had a good long cry about not being able to get pregnant.
Yeah, reproductive system dysphoria is fun like that. Best part is, we don't currently have any way to fix it. Estrogen and plastic surgery can go a long ways, but not far enough...
@k_dragon: I saw something about uterus transplants recently. It's a temporary transplant so the receiver can have a child and then it gets removed again so the person doesn't have to stay on anti-rejection meds forever. I'm not sure if it would be possible for that to help in this situation though.
@GoldenSunflower: That honestly sounds worse. I need enough surgery as it is, no way am I getting some temporary shit just to have a kid.
@k_dragon: Yeah right now does not sound like a good idea. But maybe I hope some day they will find a way. I would give anything for that. I love this strip very much.
@Anna Rei: If it happens in my lifetime, it'll probably be prohibitively expensive. It's possible, but I'm not letting my hopes get high, or I'll just risk being more disappointing.
@k_dragon: It be nice if you could just take a pill and grow female internal organs. I am both genders so I often wish I could magically change genders with my male or female modes. But most the time I am stuck in between genders in both mind and body being I am intersex. I was born with male organs but I am genetically female and at puberty I got curves breasts and hips and became mentally much like a girl. I been stuck in between all my life. I could only wish I could have sex and a child like a female could. I am not always wishing that. But a lot of time it really hurts I can not. I like being both but I wish my body could change with my mind in modes. :P
Although understandable on its own, remember what her first memory was...
