I finally hit 24 weeks yesterday so my baby is now viable. I don't want him born this early but it does make me feel good that atleast he would have a fighting chance now. Now I guess it is time to finally start buying some of the baby things we need.

Aw yay! I'm so happy for you. I know I was relieved a bit when I hit viability too. It's very helpful for the anxiety!

Wow already? That's great Melissa, I never knew about the 24 week viability milestone until you told me when I hit mine.

Hooray! A wonderful milestone! It feels like forever when you are waiting to get there, but such a relief, not that anyone would want to deliver that early. Here's to a healthy remaining pregnancy! Only 16 more weeks!

Congrats on a huge milestone! When baby Rey was in the NICU, I saw 3 little 24wk, 25 and 28 wk baby's and they all looked like they were going to pull through! My OB delivers a few of these a year, his last one was 26wks only weighing in at 15oz. That little baby made it and is nice and healthy now!

Thanks Ladies.

Lori that is nice to hear. I know none of us wants our babies delivered early but is a good feeling to know that they have a fighting chance.

Yes, technology is amazing. We have so many opportunities these days.

But also, the human body and spirit are amazing too! My mother was born in the 1930's, in a third world country at 28 weeks and survived. She was 16 oz. She has always had health issues, particularly respiratory, but a true miracle considering she was born on a dirt floored room by her mother and one other lady with no medicine, machines or modern technologies.

24 weeks is a major milestone... And every week makes a difference. If the baby is under 24 weeks we hardly ever try to save them. It's very sad. So congrats on making this milestone!

It's really sad when we have like 21-22 weekers come in with their water broke and there isn't much we can do but if they only waited 2 more weeks maybe! So it really is such a great thing.

Wow Leia. That is crazy about your mom! She must have been a real fighter. Amazing too that she was healthy enough to go through birthing her own children after that. Way to go mom!
