I mean, they could have easily used the sperm donor plot to do exactly that. They could have her react to the situation with the realisation that maybe she wants kids after all. But they didn't. Instead they reinforced her stance and even let her dad and Leonard support her. At this point it would just be a hard U-turn* and I'm not sure if I want that with so little time left, tbqh. (*btw. contrast to Bernadette who had her reservations, too: the first time the topic came up with Howard her stance was already softened a lot cause it was a deal breaker for Howard, so at this point Penny is already putting her foot down harder than Bernadette did.) Bernie was clear in her reasoning. She didn't want to be restricted by children. Also she was at a time in her life when she'd only just achieved her career ambition. They agreed on a non-down-dragging scenario for her while they were still engaged. Things had changed a lot by the time the first baby was on the way but they worked it out. It was the second baby that was a mistake. Penny's issue has come from who knows where and goodness knows what it is. Goodness knows where they're going with it.
