  This is really frightening, especially since the youngest babies are at the most risk. I'm considering not having any visitors for the baby's first couple of months, but how do I keep the ILs out without causing a family strife?
He's so precious, Dandyez. And what wonderful news that he's breathing on his own!!!  Did he get steroid shots before birth?
I had several ultrasounds so far, because I'm high-risk. That said, I've only had about 1/4 of the scans they would have liked me to have. Had I had a normal pregnancy I would have refused U/S..

I had an easy 1st trimester in terms of morning sickness, only a little bit of nausea around week 10.
