Viability- 26 Weeks

Most people never even think about viability. You likely have no idea what it means. But for someone who has been through what we have been through, viability is an important milestone.

Fetal viability is the ability of a fetus to survive outside the uterus.
At 26 weeks today, we have made it to viability. This by no means that Henley would survive if something went wrong and she had to be born today, but the statistics show that at this point she CAN, and likely would, survive on her own outside of my belly. We obviously continue to pray that she keeps growing steady and strong in my belly until 40 weeks, but reaching this milestone is just another blessing we get to count.
