    A Waco woman paralyzed in a crash has shocked doctors twice, first by walking just months after her crash and now by becoming a healthy mom-to-be.

    Two years ago Liz Mitchell was told she would never be able to walk again after she fell from a balcony and broke her neck.

    Mitchell, a former Dallas prosecutor who now lives in Waco, proved them wrong by not only walking, but by getting pregnant.

    "It's just truly incredible to think I could go from being in a coma to being pregnant," said Mitchell.

    Mitchell and her husband, Brian, are expecting their daughter, Dorothy Marie, on Thanksgiving Day.
