Apparently so.
I hadn't heard of this issue before.
Using mouse models and organoids, it sounds like they're figuring out what exactly is going on, and what might be done about it.
I hope they're successful.
They mentioned the light weight of these premature babies - I was quite the opposite. I was just under 10 pounds. I was big as an infant, but soon lost it all. Ha! They thought I was going to be a football player.
Nope - Baseball, swimming and diving, and gymnastics.

It's not something I've experienced so I wouldn't know the pros and cons of any of the methods and procedures.

That is worse. The nurses were shocked because I meditated instead of doing the labor breathing it worked better. I did not need them. I had an ipidurel. The labor tech was not enough,

That part I could do. It's the giving birth part that I couldn't handle. I'd probably opt for cesarean.

I ‘ve been working out since my twenties. That why lost the weight quickly. I went back to the gym and got back in shape.

I don't think I could handle it.
