Viability day - if your baby is born past 24 weeks they consider it a baby not a fetus and do what they can to save it as statistically they can save a 24 week old (though obviously not ever something you'd want to test).

Ahh I see! I've read that in a space of a couple of weeks their chances of survival dramatically increase if they are born early.

I've seen pics of babies born around our gestations and they are so so tiny but it's amazing what they can do now to save them

My baby is naughty! All along the drive to work he or she was dancing on my quickly filling bladder! Not fun! Haha

OMG the havoc a little snow has caused! Took me an hour and 45 mins to get home when it normally takes 40 mins. Luckily, my boss rang and offered to put me on annual leave for tonight as she could get staff in to cover. Saved me worrying about driving back in.

Good thing too as more snow expected and temp will drop. Plus I woke up to turn on my other side earlier and I thought I'd damaged my hips! The pain was awful luckily its ok now and I'm back to the usual ache but it wasn't pleasant!

Officially 24 weeks today, as far as my official due date goes. At our last US they said she might be a little older, but in the end she'll be ready when she's ready.

I was thinking a lot about V day, and although it's an awesome thing in theory, I'm so happy that my baby is still safely with me. I'm glad I'm doing everything I can to give her the best opportunity in the womb.

It makes me so sad to see the premies born this early. They're suffering so much their first months of life when they should be comfortably in their mother's body. It's great that if an emergency happens they can survive, but I was literally pouring tears thinking about the innocent 2 lb babies born too early and fighting for their lives.

Sorry if this is a downer. I'm still thrilled for V day for all of us, but I really hope none of our babies have to worry about that.
