    I am NOT looking forward to Gloria being pregnant stories next season.

    I'd prefer this show to concentrate a lot more on the Dunphy family with the other two families just being occasional guest stars. The Dunphy kids are comedy gold.

    I've actually grown to like Lilly 2.0.

    I'm assuming that's a Lilly quote and not a judgement against my coiffure.

    Yes, they do it great!
    And, it's not PC to be accepting of gay couples. It's right.

    People don't always use good judgment when it comes to having sex. I know one couple who thought that the woman was menopausal so they stopped worrying about her getting pregnant. Their son is almost 8 now. Another couple should have named their daughter White Zin, because she wouldn't have been conceived if the woman hadn't gotten drunk on White Zinfandel and forgot that she didn't like her husband. There are lots of men who won't get vasectomies for various dumb reasons. And contraception fails sometimes, due to incorrect usage or bad luck. I don't think unplanned pregnancies are always due to irresponsibility. Sometimes they're just due to being human.

    I didn't put together that Gloria was pregnant I really thought she was car sick because I get that way when other people drive.

    I did however think once they got to the hospital they were not going to get the baby and Gloria was going to offer to be a surrogate for Cam and Mitch.

    Why do you assume it was unplanned? Gloria was most likely wanted another baby and I think we have seen that. There was an episode where she took Lily for the day and acted like she really wanted her for her own. And she was ecstatic to be pregnant.

    Of course not! Who gives their baby away just because their step-son wants another baby?

    Because Jay doesn't want more kids. No way. I don't buy it either, and fully expect there to be a comment about how birth control (his vasectomy, her birth control) failed.

    Bc after a certain age is tricky, too. Hormones can be dangerous.

    Enjoyed the episode. Not sure how I feel about Gloria being pregnant. I wonder how old her character is supposed to be. In real life, she turns 40 in about 6 weeks, and she's got a son in college.

    Exactly. The "because Gloria wanted more kids, therefore it happened" explanation doesn't hold water; if that were the case, there would have been more foreshadowing and at least some indication that she'd had a serious discussion with Jay. And the possibility that they weren't using some form of contraception is very, very slim IMO. When a man of his obvious means has two children and clearly wants no more, there's no WAY he doesn't pursue a vasectomy. Something failed somewhere, and if they don't at least address it in passing next season I'll be disappointed.

    What indication has Jay given that he doesn't want more children? I predict he will be thrilled. The other Pritchet children, not so much.

    I didn't say she was ancient. Having a kid at 40 isn't a big deal at all. I'm just curious how old her character is actually supposed to be. I've always gotten the impression from the show that her character is mid-30s, so I guess Gloria is supposed to be younger than Sofia is in real life. I don't think they've said how old Gloria is, but I've just always gotten the sense that she's supposed to be younger.
