Viability

We're there! We made it! 24 weeks today! Happy Viability Day everyone!

I know if the larger sense this really doesn't mean much... but it was such a HUGE deal for me mentally. I don't want to have these babies anytime soon, but if I did... If I had to... There is a chance they'd make it now.

On the good side, it looks as though they will stay in cooking for quite some time. At my appointment yesterday, everything looked great. I keep waiting for the shoe to drop, for something to go wrong, but (knock on wood) this pregnancy has been smooth sailing. Babies are both measuring above average, although I keep worrying that I'm not gaining enough weight. I've only added 18 pounds so far... But maybe I'm one of those fortunate people and the babies are actually taking the fat from my thighs. Wouldn't that be nice? I could stand to be a little fortunate :) Be the one that others are jealous of for a change!

  6. It's a massive milestone. I remember that day clearly with our twins and it felt like I could breathe for the very first time in my pregnancy.
    Best of luck with the remaining days. Get all the sleep you can now...

  9. Wooooooooooooooooooooooo! Great news on making it to 24 weeks. In the larger sense it DOES mean much. I was diagnosed with IC on Tuesday and got an emergency cerclage. I'm in bedrest right now and have my countdown clock set at 24 weeks. Twins are doing fine so far, but it will be so nice to hit that. Then each week after. Wishing you all the best for the next 14-16 weeks ahead.
