‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: Carly Pregnant or Ovarian Cancer February Sweeps Storyline?

General Hospital spoilers say Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) tells hubby Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) that she’s pregnant. Chatter online was that Carly may be expecting a little Corinthos. But other spoilers hint at an ovarian cancer storyline launching for February sweeps. Every year, there’s a new medical crisis plot in February and this may be the starting point.

This unexpected pregnancy could turn into something sad and frightening. While Carly Corinthos gets the inkling that she’s pregnant, it could be something else. If you think back to February sweeps 2017 and 2018, you’ll recall that major advocacy storylines launched. If the GH showrunners stick to their pattern, expect a medical storyline attached to a significant medical condition.

General Hospital Spoilers: Carly Corinthos Pregnancy – Something More to Come?

General Hospital spoilers spoilers say Carly Corinthos could get the shock of her life as she suspects that she is pregnant. It looks like she missed a couple of periods and gets checked out for a suspected pregnancy. The soap magazines splashed “Carly’s Pregnant” on the cover, but they only get the spoilers the show wants them to have.

In fact, this may turn into a bigger and more somber storyline. General Hospital did a menopause story, but it’s unlikely they would repeat that. So, it could be that another devastating medical crisis has Carly Corinthos at the center. It’s a scientific fact that ovarian cancer tumors can cause pregnancy symptoms and even a false positive pregnancy test. There are some other hints this might be coming to GH.

GH Spoilers: Rocky Pregnancy Past for Carly Corinthos

General Hospital spoilers reminds us that Carly Corinthos shouldn’t be ripe for baby making. First, she’s out of her prime baby years. Second, she had three high-risk pregnancies and was told she would likely not get pregnant again after Josslyn Jacks (Eden McCoy). With Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell), she suffered post partum depression so severe she couldn’t even hold him.

Then there was the first pregnancy with Sonny Corinthos that ended when she miscarried. An argument with AJ Quartermaine (Sean Kanan) triggered a fall down the stairs at the Q mansion. After that, her docs promised she would have trouble conceiving. With Josslyn, she was high risk. There are many health factors suggesting that Carly should not turn up pregnant on General Hospital.

Ovarian Cancer – Next General Hospital Medical Cause?

GH likes to bring awareness to health issues every year with a big medical storyline. In the past, the ABC soap focused on illnesses such as Monica Quartermaine’s (Leslie Charleson) breast cancer battle. There’s also the Robin Scorpio (Kimberly McCullough) and Stone Cates (Michael Sutton) HIV story that still resonates today. Alexis Davis (Nancy Lee Grahn) did a menopause and lung cancer story.

During February of 2015, General Hospital had Spencer Cassadine (Nicolas Bechtel) in the burn storyline featuring Shriner’s Hospital. In 2016, the soap dug into the bipolar storyline with Morgan Corinthos (Bryan Craig). Then, there was Anna’s diagnosis with PCV for February sweeps 2017. 2018 February sweeps saw the launch of the Mike Corbin (Max Gail) Alzheimer’s story.

Every February, there’s a new medical crisis for a very specific illness (not something vague like Oscar’s brain tumor). So with the Carly Corinthos pregnancy announcement, it could signal that ovarian cancer could be the true story here. Also, Laura Wright and other cast members show up regularly to events for The Sandy Rollman Ovarian Cancer Foundation.

General Hospital has a working relationship with the organization. The charity is one of William DeVry’s (AKA Julian Jerome) favorites that he and other cast work with. So, there are lots of hints this might be where the “pregnancy” story is headed.

General Hospital Spoilers: CarSon Baby or GH Medical Crisis for Sweeps

No doubt, it would be a joyous surprise if Carly Corinthos was really pregnant. The only biological child she and Sonny share, Morgan Corinthos, died tragically, so it would be a “miracle”. However, there are many signs that point to this happy pregnancy announcement turning into something else. Given Carly’s age and risk factors, pregnancy seems a bit of a stretch.

Plus, with Michael Corinthos still stuck in the baby swap plot, why would GH bring another Corinthos kid into the mix? And there’s the fact that every February on General Hospital brings a new illness for the show to advocate and help raise awareness for. So, that’s what seems far more likely, right? Soon, Carly Corinthos tells Sonny she suspects she’s pregnant.

But when she goes to get checked out at GH, something else might be diagnosed. With many actors on the soap, including Laura Wright, already devoted to the cause of ovarian cancer, this very well could be what’s next for CarSon. Watch ABC weekdays to see what’s next with this unlikely pregnancy storyline and whether a twist is ahead.
