* Film/WhatToExpectWhenYoureExpecting: After deciding to take a break from baby-making one of the couples conceives during a drunken romp in the bushes. Keep in mind that she was drinking ''because'' they had decided to take a break and therefore she no longer needed to abstain from alcohol.

** Actually a downplayed version with all the couples: the couples who really wanted to have children are having the most troubles to conceive, while the couples who weren't planning to have children all got pregnant. However, they still are happy with their offspring. A woman who accidentally got pregnant was actually [[spoiler:heartbroken when she lost her child due to miscarriage]].

* In the sound novel ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'', it takes Natsuhi and Krauss Ushiromiya 8 years after their marriage to conceive their daughter, Jessica. Krauss' ambitious younger sister Eva, however, gives birth almost immediately after she and Hideyoshi marry, so she tries to use this as a bargaining chip to secure her son George's headship in the family over Jessica.

* In the ''[[WesternAnimation/{{Thundercats 2011}} ThunderCats (2011)]]'' episode "Native Son" a {{flashback}} reveals that the king and queen of Thundera tried to have a child for years. It got so bad that the queen worried she might be infertile. Their concerns were put to rest when baby Tygra literally flew into their lives [[MosesInTheBullrushes in a balloon]]. So of course just when the royal couple have gotten comfortable with Tygra inheriting the throne as crown prince, the queen became pregnant. [[spoiler:Then she died in childbirth, so little Tygra lost his mother and the throne in one night.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Played both straight and averted in ''Fanfic/TheSecondTry''. [[spoiler:Asuka]] didn't want to have a baby, even to the point where she was ''starving herself'' in a misguided attempt to induce a miscarriage (which, [[spoiler:Shinji]] later noted, put her in more danger than the baby). However, once she sees the first ultrasound that changes. The aversion comes with [[spoiler:Aki]] being born alive and healthy.
** [[MySecretPregnancy She had also tried to keep her pregnancy a secret from her husband.]] He only found out by chance when he was picking up their trash after a rat had ripped open a bag and discovered the positive test. Needless to say, he was not happy.
** [[ButWeUsedACondom They're not really sure how it happened, as she had been on the pill when she got pregnant.]] [[spoiler:Asuka]] claims that the drugs were expired while [[spoiler:Shinji]] suspects that she forgot to be constant in taking it. Of course, it's also possible they fell into that small percentile where it doesn't work, something he [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] with a weary "we've beaten worse odds before".

* Averted with extreme prejudice in ''Blog/AskSeriousRainbow'': Serious is thrilled to find out she's infertile as she never wanted her own children (she's adopted Scootaloo, anyway), and that means she no longer has to take the anti-pregnancy elixir. That doesn't apply when she bends her gender, though, so Applejack still has to take it. She also [[BreakingTheFourthWallcriticizes the use of this trope]] to inject drama, claiming anyone who does so "can't write for shit" and finds it galling that she has to clarify that she's not mocking the trope.
