How should i feel 24 weeks pregnant? Yeah, six months done! I still have sixteen weeks or about four months left. Yeah, if you go into early labor, the baby has a decent chance now. A day in the mother is worth several days in the ICU, so while the baby is more likely to live if born now, I would still rush to the emergency room if I were in early labor.

Put it in your pocket, i don’t want you to lose it. Okay? You ready? I think so. It’s Cady’s big day. lt;igt; ( camera shutter clicks )lt;/igt;.
