I'M PREGNANTAND...A Little Person
World Premiere: Thursday, September 8 at 10PM ET
At 4 feet 2 inches, Nadea Fox is coping with the difficulties of being pregnant while having
achondroplasia dwarfism. The father of the baby is no longer in her life, but since he is average
sized, Nadea may have a full-size baby. Regardless of how big the baby is when he is born,
Nadea will be forced have a C-section, as her pelvis is too narrow to give birth any other way.
And since her spine is more compressed than that of an average-size woman, complications arise
when she is being given the anesthesia for the surgery. Will Nadea and the baby be okay, and
what size will the baby be at birth?
I'M PREGNANTAND...Addicted to Crystal Meth
World Premiere: Thursday, September 15 at 10PM ET
Crystal meth has all but destroyed Katy Irmen's life. Having struggled as a meth addict for the
past 10 years, Katy finds herself pregnant. Though she struggles to stay clean, Katy has already
relapsed twice during her pregnancy, and is being released from a full-time residential rehab
facility to face the realities of her life and her addiction on her own. This episode of I'M
PREGNANT AND...follows Katy's journey as she returns home, reunites with old friends and
confides in fellow addicts. As she struggles with her own recovery, Katy also comes to terms
with how her meth addiction may have affected the health of her unborn child. When the baby
arrives, Katy must learn to juggle the pressures of caring for a newborn while dealing with the
rigorous demands of addiction treatment. If Katy relapses again, she would not only face prison
time, she would also lose the most precious thing in her life-her newborn daughter.
