[Spoilers] Season 11 Discussion Thread in Season 11 Posted May 16, 2018 I don't think it was a throw away line either and I think we could still see Penny having those(or one of them) babies by the end without having a pregnancy story. We could find out in the finale(like many have said) that she is pregnant or even the episode before the last and have the last be a fast forward to her having the baby(not likely but you never know). When the writers wrote in Bernadette's first pregnancy I think they did it as a last minute thing but to me it worked. They had been married for almost 4 years which for a couple is a good amount of alone time together before children.(I was married almost 6 when I had my first) So if we go by that natural progression Leonard and Penny will be married 4 years in the finale(assuming season 12 is the last). I think that is a perfect amount of time to bring in those smart and beautiful babies. And as many have said, the writers could change their minds if they get a 13th season. One can only hope. Here is something this Shamy fan doesn't want....Amy pregnant before Penny(or together.....leave that for fanfiction) and a storyline around that. I am happy enough knowing they have the babies from the line in Young Sheldon. It works for me(maybe not others but definitely me).
