Well sometimes. Some are to all the above questions and some aren't. Will just have to wait and see. When the baby gets here and the dr's and nursery assess the baby they will know pretty quickly on what they are going to do. Sometimes baby go to NICU/ICU for a little while to help them out and give them the extra needed support. I wish you luck with all!
