Here's our list of the best and the worst pregnancies/babies to hit the small screen. 

1. Worst: Lori & Rick (The Walking Dead)

Worst: Lori & Rick (The Walking Dead)
Oh boy. Laurie's pregnancy was met with a frustrated groan from the audience during the already boring Season 2 of The Walking Dead, and it just got worse from there. Little Judy's only positive addition to the show was giving the writers an excuse to kill Laurie off. Sorry sweetie, the fans just hated you. Plain and simple.

2. Best: Lily & Marshall (How I Met Your Mother)

Best: Lily & Marshall (How I Met Your Mother)
Some people might wonder why it took so long for Lily to get pregnant, but I think it came at just the right time, when Marshall had finished dealing with the grief of losing his father. After almost a full season of navigating silly pregnancy plots, Lily finally gave birth to Marvin Wait-For-It Erickson. Best. Name. Ever.

3. Best: Meredith & Derek (Grey's Anatomy)

Best: Meredith & Derek (Grey's Anatomy)
After finding out she was practically infertile, Meredith and Derek decided to adopt, and we got Zola! And then surprise, surprise, Meredith conceived a baby boy. Her pregnancy worked well in the show with just the right amount of tension and danger, and I'll never forget the adorable way Meredith told Derek she was pregnant.

4. Worst: Hayley & Klaus (The Originals)

Worst: Hayley & Klaus (The Originals)
As cute as Baby Hope is, I have to dole out some harsh truths. Babies and vampires just don't mix, Twilight taught us that. Hayley's pregnancy dragged on forever, and then they ultimately had to send the baby offscreen while they figured out what to do with her. Now, the decision to bring her back as a magical messiah might have been overdoing it a bit.

5. Best: Rachel & Ross (Friends)

Best: Rachel & Ross (Friends)
Rachel's pregnancy provided for some of the best laugh-out-loud moments on Friends, and Emma was around just enough to be cute and kept away just enough to avoid being annoying. More importantly, an entire generation of TV viewers now know that condoms are only 97% effective. Important life lessons being learned here.

6. Worst: Brennan & Booth (Bones)

Worst: Brennan & Booth (Bones)
Procedurals have a hard time with pregnancy, mainly because as much as the audience loves the main characters, they're mainly there for the murder mystery, not to see their favorite crime fighters discover the miracle of life. Booth and Brennan navigating the waters of parenthood doesn't exactly mesh too well with their constant hunt for serial killers.
