‘I woke up in jail, my hands and ankles handcuffed because I’d refused the breathalyzer test. My kids had been in the backseat.’: Woman beats addiction after several years of drug, alcohol abuse

“I drank nightly, but not always excessively. I thought I was in control. A few months later, I found myself living a literal nightmare. Simply getting drunk wasn’t enough. I’d drink well past the point of feeling good. But I wasn’t getting drunk until after I put my daughter to bed. I always got to work on time and performed well each day, so I refused to believe I had a problem.”

‘I love you, but it’s really important I have a blood child.’ I tried for 10 years. I saw my dreams go up in smoke.’: Woman with PCOS, Endometriosis survives near-death experience, gets pregnant after decade of trying

“I was in and out of consciousness. The doctor grabbed this huge syringe and needle (I mean HUGE). I thought he was going to stick it in my stomach, but he put it somewhere else…inside me, through my cervix and into my stomach. I just knew I was about to have to terminate my baby. They weren’t even giving me a choice. They had to cut me wide open. I had a C-section scar but no baby to show for it.”

‘There were two types of girls: skinny girls and fat girls. Being fat was the worst thing we could be.’: Woman loses 100 pounds after ‘the perfect storm’ in college, immerses herself in world of fitness

“After graduating, I packed my bags and headed to college. There, I found a college meal card, 24-hour Dominos delivery, and a party lifestyle. What I didn’t find? My running shoes. Lack of activity, poor food choices, and a very skinny ‘eats anything he wants’ college boyfriend created the perfect storm. I’d gone from heavy to morbidly obese.”

‘I ‘couldn’t’ have kids and my husband was ‘infertile’. When I got pregnant, my baby had ‘no chance of survival.’ Yet, she made it.’: Premature baby ‘the size of a coke can’ thrives despite all odds

“The specialist I saw said there was less than 20% chance of survival. He also continued to tell me I was young and healthy, and I needed to try again. My heart fell to the floor. I wanted to scream and cry. ‘Why would we be blessed with this baby girl only for her to die?’ I grew angry. That anger soon turned to determination. I wasn’t giving up! I had already had several negative pregnancy tests! To our surprise, there was a little heartbeat.”

‘It’s confirmed, you are having quadruplets.’: Couple struggling with fertility become pregnant with four babies, ‘He looked like he was going to faint.’

“He didn’t guarantee a successful pregnancy, but it was worth a try. I had seen so many negative pregnancy tests in the past that it was almost impossible for me to see the positive in this one. ‘Triplets, you are having triplets!’ And then he says, ‘the fourth sac will probably vanish since I didn’t hear a heartbeat.’”
