Will Grey's Anatomy Incorporate Sarah Drew's Pregnancy?

by at . Comments

Grey's Anatomy star Sarah Drew is pregnant, as we reported yesterday. Congratulations again to the 30-year-old actress and her husband, Peter Lanfer!

This exciting news, of course, is accompanied by the question of how the show will work around Drew's changing body and life for the next 6-12 months.

The show has not been inclined to write an actress' pregnancy into the script before, as we've seen recently with Ellen Pompeo and Jessica Capshaw.

Will the handling of Drew's character, April, be any different?

The fact that April is a virgin makes it even less likely that we'll see a pregnant Dr. Kepner in season eight ... or does it? That would be a heck of a plot twist.

Thus far, the only thing Grey's producers have to say to us regarding Drew's condition is they have "not determined" if her character will also be pregnant.

April has made a big deal about saving herself for someone she truly loves. It's one of her central characteristics. Maybe we'll meet Mr. Right very soon?

What do you think? Would you rather see pregnant April, or conveniently always behind an operating table/sent off to Africa for three episodes April? Discuss!

We have been told that April will lose her virginity with Dr. Stark.What new intern you are talking about?

Kepner is not esential to any GA plot line. I do hope the SL goes Kepner has an indiscreet love affair with an intern. All the other interns resent her favoring her intern /boyfriend and Kepner gets fired as chief resident. Her exit is either to Africa or back to her family farm where she realises that her real wish is to be a vet and she leaves SGH

Coma! (Then they can just use a mannequin.) Or a stomach tumour? Or maybe just behind furniture and lots of head-shots. I mean, she has all her Chief Resident duties, which she won't be able to complete if she's sick (or in Africa).

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

Lexie: [narrating] Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone.
Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.
Alex: And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime.
Izzie: That's how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you can't breathe, that's how you survive.
Derek: By remembering that one day, somehow, impossibly, you won't feel this way. It won't hurt this much.
Bailey: Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way.
Owen: So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.
Meredith: The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can't control it.
Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.
Callie: And let it go when we can.
Meredith: The very worst part is that the minute you think you're past it, it starts all over again.
Cristina: And always, every time, it takes your breath away.
Meredith: There are five stages of grief. They look different on all of us, but there are always five.
Alex: Denial.
Derek: Anger.
Bailey: Bargaining.
Lexie: Depression.
Richard: Acceptance.
