This past weekend I went to New Orleans to visit my best friend, Beth. I was originally visiting to have a girl's weekend and to throw her a baby shower. We didn't get to throw the baby shower because on August 1, 2011, she gave birth at 25 1/2 weeks to a 1 pound baby boy named Gabriel Joseph. Beth felt the baby move less and less, so her doctor had her come in for monitoring. What they found was not good. The baby was very sick and needed to be delivered right away if he had any chance to survive. The doctor said if she had waited another day, he would not have made it. After tons of tests, the doctors finally figured out the cause. Beth had contracted CMV(http://www.cdc.gov/cmv/overview.html) at about 20 weeks and her body started to fight off the virus, and the baby.
