    When Married...With Children's Peggy Bundy announced that she was pregnant on the first episode of season six, fans prepared for big laughs as they followed the show's onscreen answer to Sagal's real-life pregnancy. But when Sagal sadly miscarried, the plotline was revealed to be a dream of Al's. The show worked around her subsequent pregnancies.  

  • Julia Roberts

    See if you can follow this one: In Ocean's Twelve, Julia Roberts plays the non-pregnant wife of a conman who decides to participate in one of his schemes, requiring her to pose as a pregnant Julia Roberts. Got it? Very meta, and very in the self-conscious vein of the Ocean's series. 

  • Caterina Scorsone

    Scorsone's pregnancy was great news for her, but sad news for her Private Practice character, Amelia. While Scorsone thankfully went on to give birth to a healthy baby girl named Eliza, Amelia suffered a tragic loss: Her unborn baby had no brain, and she made the brave choice of carrying it to term in order to donate the baby's organs.
