Here we are, 5 months 2 weeks aka the big 24.
'Week 24 is the legal age of viability. This means that if your baby was
to be born now he or she would be classed as a premature baby rather
than a fetus. This doesn't mean it'll all be plain sailing, though: A
baby born this prematurely faces an uphill struggle for survival,
particularly because of under-developed lungs and other major organs.
However, some babies born at this point can and do survive, albeit
usually spending the first few months in hospital in a Special Care Baby
Unit (SCBU). From the end of this week, termination is no longer
'Although it’s unlikely to happen, it’s reassuring to know that if your
baby was born now, he or she would have a good chance of making it, with
lots of special care in the early stages.'
'The other big milestone your baby reaches at this stage of pregnancy is
that she may now survive, with special care, if she is born prematurely.'
Knowing she is already a strong little pea I'm sure it all will be fine from now on. So it's ultra-super official; No matter what, we are having this little girl!
