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.
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.
