Happy Viability Day

This week marks the week of a milestone in Bob's viability (note, his name isn't really Bob, but that's what we have been calling him ever since Jen's husband Brad nicknamed him Bob).

About 50 to 70 percent of babies born at 24 to 25 weeks, and more than 90 percent born at 26 to 27 weeks, survive.

This may be a little morbid, but it's a milestone nonetheless.

At 24 weeks, Bob is about the size of an ear of corn, almost a foot long.
