Months after suffering a miscarriage in the season six finale, Meredith finds out it was because her body doesn’t want to birth a baby — will this haunt her the rest of the season?
So much good happened on Grey’s Anatomy Oct. 14 episode, “Can’t Fight Biology” — April (Sarah Drew) and Lexie (Chyler Leigh) bonded (sort of!), and Cristina (Sandra Oh) was almost back to her power-hungry go-getter strong self (yay!) — but I can’t stop harping on the fact that Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) found out she can’t have a baby. It’s such a bummer!
After losing her first fetus in a miscarriage during the shootings at Seattle Grey Mercy West Hospital during the season six finale, Meredith (and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) head to the doctor, where they are told Mer has a “hostile uterus.” Essentially, she can try to have kids…but most likely, it’s not going to happen for her.
The looks on their faces when they heard the news broke my heart. Ever since this couple first bonded at the bar season one, I’ve been hardcore Team Mer-Der…all I want is for them to be happy, and now it seems they’re going to go through another rough patch as Meredith struggles with her inability to become a mother.
Between the shooting, taking care of their screwed up friends and family AND trying to keep their volatile relationship healthy, hasn’t creator Shonda Rhimes put them through enough drama? Apparently not.
Derek, being his usual laid back self, tells his bummed out wife it will be fine. “Let’s just live,” he urges. “Whatever happens, happens.”
But we all know Meredith won’t just live. She’s going to pine over this kid thing all season. I wish they would just decide to adopt and move on. What do YOU think Meredith and Derek should do? Should they keep trying, or should they accept fate?
