Where is the other baby?!! (Season 2)

We all assumed (at least I did) that the cute blond toddler in the 4th episode was Peggy's. Especially since in the 2nd episode, she is asked by her sister (Anita Olson Respola) to "say goodbye" which prompted our introduction to said cute toddler.

So... what do you make of the fact that Anita was pregnant in Peggy's OMG-I-just-had-a-baby (or rather Don-helped-me-so-I-owe-him) flashbacks in this last episode (E5)?

I keep thinking about it, and wish it was all a book so I could jump to the end to know the truth right now!

Could it be that Peggy's baby was actually given up for adoption? (Before the premiere I was certain she would just abandon the baby at the hospital and continue her life... maybe she did... with the help of her mother+sister.)

Or could it be that something bad happened to the Anita's baby?! (Which would better explain the hidden animosity and backstabbing confessional of episode 4.)

This season started slowly, and I have to admit that I was slightly disappointed and also confused about the 2 year jump.

But after these last 2 episodes, I'm glad I didn't give up on the show.

I'm definitely confused about the Peggy baby situation. It seems as if when Peggy looked in on the kids' room when at her sister's, that those were her sister's kids plus Peggy's that the sister was taking care of. But it all seems very, very strange still and I'm sure it's very significant that her sister was pregnant in that flashback to the hospital. I agree that I'd love to jump ahead, but after this past week's episode am very glad I'm (trying) to be patient and sticking with everything along the way!

what if Peggy's sister was PRETENDING to be pregnant so that when she showed up with a new baby (Peggy's), people would believe it? Remember a couple of episodes ago when she was at her parent's home late one night and went to leave but was stopped by her mother and sister who said something like "Don't you want to say goodbye"? I'm going to have to go home now and rewatch this on my On Demand! Good catch!

Jackieu0225, you might be on to something. It's true that it would be hard for family/friends to understand how the baby just popped up. They might have wanted to set the scene with Anita's fake pregnant belly.
Although I'm betting on the "Anita lost her baby and now has to raise Peggy's... so resents her" theory.
