I would really like some advice from you--I have 3 week old twins in the NICU born at 31 weeks (boy's water broke at 28 weeks--I was in hospital 17 days trying to keep them in). They told us 2 weeks ago that he has periventricular leukomalacia with a grade 1 IVH. I do not know what to expect. They say he may develop CP--he moves fine now--when do the signs/symptoms begin? I am very overwhelmed and anxious about all this. What questions should I ask the doctors? What advice can you give me? Thank you!
