  • My best friend delivered her son at 27 weeks gestation due to preclampsia. he was small but pretty healthy tho he required a ventilaor and such for a few weeks..but he did remarkable for a about a month. I believe around 30 weeks gestation he developed RSV and about 2 weeks later passed away from it. She has a daughter who is two but still struggles everyday..and idk if she's ever gonna have another baby.

    but i wish you the best of luck hunny and i'll keep your daughter in my prayers
