Discovery Health's I'm Pregnant And...Follows Pregnant Women in Desperate Situations in World Premiere Episodes This Summer

-- Series Returns With World Premiere Episodes Starting Tuesday, July 20 at 9 PM (ET/PT) --

SILVER SPRING, Md., June 29 --Discovery Health's buzzed-about series I'M PREGNANT AND... has shocked and astounded viewers with unforgettable stories of women giving birth amid some of the most dire and disastrous situations imaginable. This July, I'M PREGNANT AND... returns with eight world premiere episodes documenting the real-life accounts of women navigating pregnancies complicated by unbelievable emotional, physical and circumstantial obstacles.

Premiering Tuesday, July 20, at 9 PM (ET/PT), this groundbreaking series chronicles the real stories of pregnant women as they struggle to keep themselves and their unborn children safe and healthy despite a variety of drastic situations -- from coping with HIV, to grappling with drug addiction, to confronting the reality of being a pregnant hoarder.

The new run of summer episodes kicks off with a special hour-long installment, I'M PREGNANT AND...MAY BE HAVING A DWARF. Viewers will meet Nicole and Mike, a couple anxiously awaiting the birth of their first baby boy -- but this is no ordinary pregnancy. While Nicole is of average height, Mike is 4'1" and has achondroplasia, the most commonly known genetic condition causing dwarfism. Though neither parent will know whether their baby carries the trait until his birth, cameras follow Nicole and Mike as they happily anticipate their new baby, while maintaining awareness of the health complications that might arise with their son's birth.

Additional topics explored during this run of premieres include:
