But Linda decides to take matters into her own hands and makes a call pretending to be Nancy.

However, when Linda arrives at the clinic to talk to her daughter's doctor, things don't quite go to plan.

Pregnancy drama?

She soon starts to feel faint and the doctor agrees to check her over, only for Linda to admit she thinks she could be pregnant.

But Linda doesn't have time to worry about the fact she could have another baby on the way when her relationship with Nancy is hanging by a thread.
