However, although this news is probably one of the biggest news ever for Meredith and Derek, the showrunners of the show is hinting that the way down to becoming the perfect family is not going to be a walk in the park. We all know how Meredith struggled to get pregnant before Zola so this is probably where they are coming from. EW shared their brief chat with a consulting producer from Grey's where we learned that indeed, the pregnancy will make Mer more anxious and definitely overprotective. Check out his statement from the report below:
“All I can tell you is that there would be a natural trepidation on the part of someone like Meredith Grey, I can imagine, having had her own battle with getting pregnant and then adopting. I think there’s going to be fear around it — as with any woman who gets pregnant when she didn’t think she could. So I think she’s going to guard this pregnancy and her health. It’s going to be something that’s very fragile.”
'Grey's Anatomy' airs every Thursday on ABC.
