    Hi,

    My wife and I have been pregnant now for 23 weeks :happydance:

    I've got a book that we read every day displaying what's going on etc. :saywhat: Yesterday, at 23 weeks and 1 day, it said that the baby is viable. Is this true?

    Also, we got an email from one of the many baby e-newsletters we are subscribed to and it said "Welcome to the second trimester". :bunny:

    So are we really in V-Day and in the second tri? :yipee:

    Edit to say I mean THIRD trimester :laugh2:

    you go to the second tri at 12 weeks :S and i always thought you was viable at 24 weeks because that is when the baby is most likely to servive outside the womb.

    Congrats on getting this far

    V-day is 24 weeks (23 weeks and 5 days technically!) I am not sure about 3rd tri? Maybe 28 weeks? Congrats on making it this far! Over halfway there!

    I think the trimesters vary a bit by countries.
