Today I am 28 weeks pregnant. Our perinatologist told us that a baby born at 28 weeks had a 90% viability rate. So we are celebrating the fact that if I contract pre-e again and the baby has to be born now, we would probably bring him home. I can almost believe I might bring a baby home. I am not ready to set up the nursery yet or say with certainty that this baby will come home, but I am getting my hopes up. Since they will take the baby at 38 weeks at the latest, due to my classical incision, I have only 10 more weeks of pregnancy to go.
