How I Met Your Mother - Alyson's Preggers, Lily's not

I hate fillers. There should be a warning before they start, something like, TV-14/FILLER.


So, just a few days after Alyson Hannigan told the world that she's preggers, we have the baby episode. And just like any other baby episode on any other show, there was the "hm....a baby would be cool" and then the freaking out and the "we're not ready" and of course, going aww at some small baby thing and realizing that they want the baby. All expected and boring stuff. You then expect them to decide that they're going to have a baby. Guess what, they're going to wait. This means no baby for Lily and Marshall, at least for now.


This is where the questions start. What's gonna happen now? Will Alyson leave the show for some time? Will they strategically place her behind furniture? Loose clothes? 3-D effects ? OK, maybe not 3-D, but then what? I'm thinking art classes in Scranton for some....Read the entire story here

I think she will be pregnant soon. They know we all think about 'yeah of coz they will make Lily pregnant, Alyson is.' So they just make a surprise that Marshall and Lily want to wait. It'll be boring if they made it exactly how we expected and then it will go to your boring and expected list up there. Nobody like to watch show with all the cliche and expected thing.

I agree! I think they will have some eps where Marshall and Lily are super contraceptively safe and we will have some sort of Oops how they hell did we get pregnant episode.
It would be too contrite if they decided they wanted to have a baby after that episode. But it did set the path for them to make Lily pregnant!

When does the filming take place for this show? I'm pretty sure they dont film year round so it could be possible that they just not film when she is 'really' big, isn't it? I dont know, just a thought.

This probably filmed looong before Hannigan knew she was pregnant or became pregnant. Maybe she was giving the creator's a head's up like, "Hey guys, working on a baby, maybe we should get some storylines ready or get them some new furniture."
But knowing how I met my mother, they will wait two episodes and pull a surprise accidental pregnancy out. It was probably the post-bacon sex. But Hannigan will still have to disapear to have the baby and care for it.
Although how cool would it be to care for your actual baby on-set? Mmmm... no, the lights would not be good.

I have a feeling they did this whole "we're not ready" episode just to throw us off the scent.
But then right after that decision not to have a baby, they're going to get accidentally pregnant. It's just the formula for these shows sometimes.
