In the wake of all the drama, stress and heartbreak surrounding daughter Ali Simms’ tragic diagnosis, Leah Messer says the toddler is defying doctors’ predictions.

The Teen Mom 2 star's offspring isn't just mobile, she's nearly running these days, despite doctors saying she'd likely require a wheelchair soon, and for life.

It's possible she will indeed be bound to a wheelchair, but for the time being, she's carrying on and making progress with no need of such assistance at all.

Leah Messer Calvert, Ali

In a recent interview, Leah and ex-husband Corey Simms, said they are going to remain positive despite the muscular dystrophy that has hampered her.

“Ali is running!” gushed Leah. “She’s doing so much better than expected. We don’t know what the future holds, but this is proof that we should not give up hope.”

If you watch Teen Mom 2 online, you know that Corey, 24, "refuses to accept" Ali’s condition, especially as the little girl seems to be doing so well.

This week on Teen Mom 2, Jenelle Evans and Courtland Rogers' arrest played out on MTV for the first time, with the exes about to face off in a courtroom.

Meanwhile, Kailyn Lowry tried to finalize wedding plans, Leah Messer got Ali into preschool, and Chelsea Houska let Aubree spend time with her dad.

What else did we learn in last night's episode, "These Are The Days"?

These Are the Days"?

Jenelle is facing the fallout that stemmed from her arrest with estranged husband, Courtland Rogers. Both were hit with assault and heroin charges.

Minus 350 for that debacle, but at this point, the Carolina Hurricane is already over Court and looking to start a future with her new beau, Nathan Griffith.

Jenelle Evans' friend Tori says it all when she proclaims “Finally! You have a boyfriend that doesn’t have a criminal record! First time for everything.”

Plus 250 for that line, Tori, and for Nathan.

Courtland is not totally out of the picture yet, though. At least not physically, when they're going to run into each other in court. Joint arrest and all.

#JenelleProblems = Minus 150.

For the Teen Mom 2 cast, there's never a dull moment. Between pregnancy scares, health issues, custody battles and relationships, the drama is 24/7.

What did we learn in last night's episode, "False Positives"?

Follow the link to watch Teen Mom 2 online at TV Fanatic to catch the installment (and past installments) in full. Then come along for our recap!

So Jenelle Evans is pregnant again! OMG! This is insane!

Or not. After she goes to see a doctor for confirmation, she finds out that the test result may be a false positive caused by hormones from her recent abortion.

She has to go for an ultrasound and her uterus is empty.

Okay, phew, she is definitely not pregnant. Plus 200 because that development would just be too much, too soon for her to handle at this phase in her life.

Oh, wait, Jenelle Evans does get pregnant for real soon.

Teen Mom 2 Season 5 Episode 5 was like art imitating life, or just reality shows filming life and airing it so long after the fact that it feels like a different world.

On last night's installment, Jenelle Evans and Nathan Griffith decided that they want to have a kid together, which as we know they went and got crackin' on.

Meanwhile, Kailyn Lowry moved son Isaac out of state without telling ex Jo, Leah Messer said goodbye to her best friend, and Chelsea ... ugh. Just ugh.

Follow the link to watch Teen Mom 2 online, then come along for THG's recap!

We kick things off with Jenelle Evans, 22, spending quality time with her son, Jace, 4, who somehow says he wants to stay with her and not Bahbrahhh!

That must mean she's doing something right? Plus 50, but Minus 50 because Babs puts the kibosh on that, telling her thanks but no thanks. Jace needs rest.

Nathan Griffith encourages her to put up more of a fight for custody of Jace, which leads to a conversation about the two of them potentially having kids.

Yes, they are gonna procreate gain. Jenelle Evans is pregnant.

The drama was actually fairly marginal on Teen Mom 2 Season 5 Episode 4, especially when you consider that Jenelle Evans stars on the MTV program.

Emotions were high, and it's not like dealing with a life-changing diagnosis, buying a new home, or parenting in general is every easy and/or drama-free.

Still, it was devoid of the craziness you might expect most weeks when you watch Teen Mom 2 online, and that's not a bad thing. Let's break it down below!

Perhaps most notable for the lack of insanity last night was Jenelle Evans and the turning point she looks to have reached with her mother Barbara.

Jenelle and Nathan Griffith have have found home to rent together that’s right on the beach in S.C. and has an extra bedroom just for her son, Jace.

Plus 100 for that basic consideration, as she's actually planning on Jace living with them down the road it seems - a stark contrast to recent seasons.

And Plus 100 more for Nathan getting distracted by cleaning up dog feces while Jenelle unpacks their moving van all by herself. That's just good comedy.

Jenelle Evans moved in with Nathan Griffith, who went on to become the father of her unborn child, Tuesday night on Teen Mom 2 Season 5 Episode 3.

Meanwhile, Leah Messer Calvert was dealt a tough blow, Kailyn Lowry had a mega-fight with Jo Rivera, and Chelsea Houska tried to work with Adam Lind.

Co-parenting? What a concept for that deadbeat. How did it work out?

What else did we learn? Come along for THG's official +/- recap!

Naturally, Jenelle Evans' decision to move in with Nathan was met with skepticism by her mom Barbara. They had one of their many fights over this.

Plus 100, though, because it was nowhere near their biggest.

Another Plus 100, too, because we know this actually ends well, or at least is trending that way a year later. Jenelle and Nathan are happy together.

She's also expecting a baby boy again, and it will be named Kaiser. Yes, Kaiser. We'd deduct points for that, but we're just happy they're a couple still.

Here's hoping that they can handle the challenges ahead. Cranking out a second baby with your new boyfriend, shortly after having an abortion?

Gonna be tough, Jenelle. Gonna be real tough.

Jenelle Evans met Nathan Griffith, the father of her unborn child, Tuesday night on Teen Mom 2 Season 5 Episode 2, and that's not nearly all for the fab four.

Medical problems, family court cases, custody battles, and even jail time are factors for her, Leah Messer Calvert, Kailyn Lowry and Chelsea Houska.

What did we learn last night? Come along for THG's official +/- recap!

Naturally, most of the headlines regarding Teen Mom 2 Season 5 Episode 2 are made by wild child Jenelle Evans, who was feeling down after her abortion.

Jenelle is confident that she made the right call to terminate the pregnancy (with Courtland Rogers' baby) but her pending court case is another story.

Her lawyer Dustin advises her not to contact Courtland at all through the duration of her heroin case, which could drag out for months to come. Plus 100.

Feeling alone and sad, she tries out an online dating app. Minus 100.

She got connected with Nathan Griffith, a guy that she raved to her mom ”plays football, goes to college, works at a resort, and is an underwear model."

While Jenelle Evans' abortion made the majority of the headlines Monday night, her MTV co-star dropped an equally shocking (albeit very different) bombshell.

Teen Mom 2's Leah Messer Calvert ended the Season 5 premiere with the news that her 4-year-old girl Aliannah has a rare form of muscular dystrophy.

Fans know that Leah and her former husband Corey Simms have spent years seeking answers as to why Aliannah was so developmentally delayed.

Now she finally has them, but that doesn't make it any easier to take.

Ali's condition is degenerative, according to experts, and will likely worsen as the preschooler gets older, eventually confining the poor thing to a wheelchair.

Fortunately, Ali is happy and content at present, but still. Life has dealt Leah A LOT in recent years, and it's hard not to feel for her deeply after this.

Teen Mom 2 is back on MTV, and with it, a host of revelations about the fab four's lives since we last saw them ... which was a long time ago. On TV at least.

The Season 5 premiere documented major events that took place about a year ago, and in Jenelle Evans years, that's like a lifetime. Case in point:

She aborted Courtland Rogers' baby. She has since moved on with Nathan Griffith and is pregnant again at this moment. No abortion is planned.

Come along for THG's +/- recap to see how Jenelle's abortion played out along with Chelsea Houska, Leah Messer and Kailyn Lowry's drama ...

We'll start things off with Jenelle, because she's the reason for the show. She explains that it wouldn’t be fair to her son, Jace, to have another baby.

Minus 150, because she doesn't even have custody of him, and Minus 50 more because it's not stopping her right now ... though maybe things changed?

The Teen Mom 2 trailer strongly hinted that she would abort this pregnancy, but rather than misleading us, the promo barely scratched the surface.

She saved all the drama for the Season 5 premiere, as viewers got to watch her mom Barbara Evans drive her to the clinic to get the abortion pill.

Wow. Plus 200 for not sugar-coating this at least.

The new trailer for Teen Mom 2 has finally arrived, at last confirming the existence of the long-rumored and long-delayed fifth season of the MTV reality hit.

Spoiler alert: Jenelle Evans and her personal drama are front and center.

The four Teen Mom 2 stars are all going through a lot, and tumultuous times lie ahead for each, but Jenelle? She takes things to another level entirely.

Evans was just arrested again for breach of the peace and recently announced she is pregnant with her second child with boyfriend Nathan Griffith.

In the Season 5 trailer, it looks like she almost makes the decision to terminate the pregnancy. But is that even her current pregnancy with Nathan?

Don't forget, Teen Mom has perhaps the longest lag between real time and air time of any reality show, and she was also pregnant a year ago.

That ended in a miscarriage with estranged husband Courtland Rogers, so it's possible this is what we'll be seeing when the show returns in 2014.
