V Day

A much longer post is forthcoming, but for now I just thought I'd note that on Sunday we hit 24 weeks, aka viability day. I harbor no illusions of this being some amazing safety zone, but there's something to be said for the notion that were I to go into PTL at this point, someone might try to do something. Hooray?

To celebrate, I updated the belly shots page with images from 22 weeks 1 day and today, 24 weeks 2 days. Apologies if they appear sideways -- I'll try to fix them later. And I'll try to do them every 2 weeks from hereonout.

I also have my 24 week appointment today in about an hour. I'm not expecting anything momentous -- I assume it will be the usual PIAC, step on the scale, BP check, fundus measurement, heartbeat check. I think my sugar drink test is next month. Fun.

Reaching v-day is something to celebrate. Even if you're celebrating very, very quietly.

Love the belly pics! You are so tiny!

And I felt the same way about the V-Day mark. Something to celebrate, but not, if you know what I mean?

Congratulations on reaching that important milestone. It's definitely a biggie.

Your belly pic looks great, by the way!

Boring, routine OB appointments are my favorite kind. Hope you are feeling well - and you look wonderful!

I hit 24 weeks this past Saturday and I agree, it made me feel good just to know that there is a slim chance things could work out right now.

Congrats...and the new belly shots are cute

It's funny how superstitious you can get about milestones. When I first got pregnant, I just wanted to get to 7 weeks, or longer than my prior pregnancies lasted. Then I just wanted to get to 12 weeks, so the risk of M/C would go down. Then I just wanted to get to the big ultrasound, so we could make sure baby was doing well. Now, I just want to get to 24 weeks so we're viable. Craziness! Glad that you've safe and sound at 24 weeks...can't wait until you're at 40!
