Babies are on the brain during this week’s New Girl. Jess and CeCe are having dinner with their lesbian couple friends when the two announce that they are pregnant. One of woman is a gynecologist and starts explaining to Jess and CeCe about fertility and development of eggs. She tells them as you get older, the amount of fertile eggs left drops drastically and Jess starts to panic because she is right at that age. CeCe isn’t too concerned because she isn’t ready to have kids yet, but Jess convinces her to go take the test. Jess, despite her worrying, is perfectly fine and in fact is very high for her age group. CeCe on the other hand isn’t as fortunate as Jess and basically needs to decide now on the baby issue. She decides to talk to Robby about the subject and he admits he wants kids…in ten years. CeCe doesn’t say anything about her issue, but doubts about the future of their relationship start to arise.
