BIGGEST LOSER Contestant Sarah Nitta Welcomes Two Babies... Only a Few Months Apart!
Proud of her season 11 weight loss from "The Biggest Loser"...a whopping 106lbs! Now, Sarah Nitta has two more things to be proud of. Two babies born only months apart.
Those who watched "The Biggest Loser" remember that Sarah said she wanted to lose weight to become healthy enough to bear children. While she lost 106 pounds, a round of fertility treatments and in vitro fertilization in 2011 ended in disappointment. She felt she needed some time for her body and heart to heal before attempting another IVF cycle.
So the eager-to-be parents, Jason and Sarah thought they would try adoption. During that time, their fertility doctor, Dr. Eva Littman of Red Rock Fertility Center, recommended that they try a round of Clomid (a fertility drug that stimulates ovulation). Not knowing that they would be chosen so quickly, they were overjoyed when the call came through. They had been chosen to be the parents of a baby girl due to be born in June 2012.
Now with the excitement of being parents building and the stress of trying to get pregnant quietly subsiding, the couple received even more great news. Just three weeks after the couple was chosen for adoption, they found out they were pregnant and due in October - not one, but two miracles coming to the Nitta family. The road to motherhood wasn't easy, but it was definitely worth it in the end, as are all great things in life!
