A continuing TV series can’t just stop production when a pregnant cast member starts to show. Productions have found various ways to deal with the fact. They can write the pregnancy into the story. They can make the character take a vacation. They can add prosthetics and make her obese for a while (it happened). Or they can put her in oversize coats, adjust camera angles, and have her carry large bags all the time, which ends up looking pretty ridiculous, especially to fans who know what’s going on. Vulture gives us list that’s not intended to be comprehensive, but an overview of the different techniques TV shows have used to deal with pregnancy, from I Love Lucy to The Americans.
