    Default First magic number..

    So the first "magic" number of a pregnancy is 12 weeks, right? This is where the chance of sustaining a pregnancy goes up.. is that correct? I've always heard 12 weeks but not sure exactly why..

    The second I believe is 24 - at which point a fetus has a higher chance of survival is born prematurely..

    Do I understand this all right?

    Just asking because I hit 12 weeks on Friday!

    My OB said that the first tri mester ends around 13 1/2 weeks, which they push to 14 to be an even week. BUT, that the chances of m/c go down drastically between 12 and 13 weeks.

    I wonder why they picked those weeks, I don't think anything "special" happens then... I mean, obviously the whole baby thing is special but..okay, I'm rambling.
    And yes, once you hit 24 weeks the babys chances are much greater for surviving if born early.

    I can't believe you're almost 12 weeks already!!!
