‘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.”

‘Being a single mom by choice? Not the most common. I spent years hoping I’d find a husband, have kids. At 33, and several failed relationships later, I gave up. It was time to do it on my own.’ Single woman told she has ‘no fertility issues,’ faces battle in pursuit of pregnancy

“I was out shopping and went to the bathroom. My mom looked over at me, tears in my eyes, and asked what was wrong. I was bleeding! I prayed, thought good baby thoughts. After all, I had no fertility issues, right? Yet this went on for months. With each month, I lost hope. All I thought and dreamt about was having a baby. I cried thinking that might never be me.”
