GREEN BAY -- Every day John and Linsey Otto get to spend with their son Logan is a blessing, one for which Linsey thanks God. When Otto, 25, became pregnant with Logan in 2005, she was nervous that her first pregnancy would end with a premature birth.
"My doctor said there was nothing to worry about, but I still felt a little uneasy. I had a feeling that something wasn't right during my pregnancy," she said.
Otto's fears of having a "preemie" materialized when Logan Robert, entered the world on March 12, 2006 - three weeks premature.
"My son was born at 35 weeks and considered premature," Otto said.
Otto is no stranger to premature birth. She was born at 29 weeks - 11 weeks early and weighing only two pounds, 14 ounces.
