v day

No, not Valentine's Day. Viability day.

Friday marked my 24th week of pregnancy, which means that our baby has a really good (ie: about 70%) chance of surviving outside the womb, should she be born early. Anyone in pregnancy land will tell you that this is a big deal day, but coming from pregnancy after loss...let's just say it's huge.

I definitely do not want to meet this girl any earlier than May, but today I praise God that my chance to mother her on earth has risen exponentially. My chance to watch my husband hold her and spoil her has greatly increased.

I know every breath I take is a sweet gift from God, but I have never been more aware of that fact than I am today.

So blessed.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.- Psalm 139:13-14


  1. So happy for you, friend. It has been a sweet journey to watch you yearn, then mourn, and now rejoice. I love you, shorty.

  2. I have to admit, I've been holding my breath a bit for this day, myself. I know loss changes you and keeps you from fully relaxing and enjoying your pregnancy. I hope this makes it a little easier. :)

    PS: Stay put, baby girl!

  3. Happy tears!!! I echo E, stay put, baby girl. ♥

  4. THANK YOU JESUS! And keep bakin' that sweet one. We'll see her soon enough in May!!! Yay!!!

  5. When I reached that point in this pregnancy I was thrilled too

  6. Praise God! I love that verse, and it totally works with this milestone celebration. Can't wait to see baby's sweet face in May.
