In fact, Baby Boy supposedly put on 4 ounces in the past 7 days, and is set to grow at a steady pace for the remainder of my pregnancy. I had a midwife appointment last Friday and she assured me that baby is still measuring right at October 23rd and has a good strong heart beat.
24 weeks is a big marker because it means the baby is ‘viable’. This essentially means that if I went into premature labor, Baby Boy would still have a fighting chance at survival (after months in a NICU). We’re fervently praying that it doesn’t come to that, but it’s still nice to know that we’ve passed such a big hurdle.
Here are the bump pics from this week. We had to move the photo session indoors since the Scottish rain was relentless all afternoon.
