19 weeks + 6 days, 22 days post rupture
I consider tomorrow to be 20 weeks pregnant. I know when I ovulated and we have been considering every Saturday to be another week pregnant. However, my doctors have been going by my LMP, making me 20 weeks pregnant as of yesterday. (I'm half way there! Ha ha, in a perfect world).
Anyway, this is good news for four reasons.
1) I'm still pregnant (duh).
2) If the baby was born tomorrow he or she would no longer be considered a 'miscarriage' and would 'count' in the eyes of birth registration people, and medical science as an actual baby granting me the documentation to prove Acorn's existence.
3) I am now eligible for 17 weeks of maternity leave, even if the baby dies. I took all of it last time with Aidan because I was looking for a new job. I'm not sure I would take it all this time if I end up not having a baby to look after, but it is still nice to have the option.
4) Since your baby is no longer a 'miscarriage' you're taken right to L&D triage if you are in labour. This means I (hopefully) won't have to deliver in Emerg next door to an appendicitis patient or whatever.
All reasons to celebrate, I guess.
