It is the day that your baby would be considered "viable" outside of the womb if you had your baby prematurely.
its at 24 weeks

From what I've been seeing it's 24 weeks. But I didn't know why. Seemed kind of random but the viable thing makes sense!!

I'm pretty sure I read 24 weeks as well. I think it's considered "viable" at that point because the chances of the baby's survival outside the womb with medical attention is greatly increased at that point. Another thing u read is that after that point the docs have to fight as hard as they can to protect the life of the baby.

Yup, 24 weeks. It's a big milestone. You can kind of breathe a sigh of relief that you've reached another critical point in your pregnancy like you do after the 12 week mark. Today is my V-day!

Yeah its 24 Weeks I reached mine on Tuesday, just another milestone in your pregnancy, and that the little one is viable and could survive if they were to come this early with medical help

Today is my V-Day too.
Means a lot to me as a close girlfriend had her baby 4 days before her V-Day & because of that they were unable to give her daughter the shot that would have matured her lungs further & potentially saved her life. Thinking of sweet little JaimieLynn today.
