Weeks pregnant: 24
Baby size in vegetables: 🌽
For those who don’t know my day job is as a Product Manager. This means I work with a a group of web developers to build cool (and sometimes less cool but functional) things for the group of websites my company owns using a delivery methodology called Agile. In Agile we have something called a “MVP” or “Minimum Viable Product”. A MVP is the simplest release of your product you could do. It’s not the final finished thing you want to take to market but it’s something that you can demonstrate to others and nurture into something amazing through further iterations.
Little O is now the length of a corn on the cob or as it’s fondly known in one of his many ancestral homelands, a mielie
Why am I explaining all of this to you? Well when a baby gets to 24 weeks in utero you celebrate “V Day” because this is the stage at which, with a LOT of help, he or she could potentially survive outside the womb. The V stands for viability. Now I am certainly not suggesting that Little O is a product or that we’d want anything other than a big, fat full term baby but there’s something very comforting in knowing that he’s now our little MVP and if something unexpected happened we’d have a good chance of him making it.
In other unrelated news, why are there no maternity workout clothes? My gym leggings are pretty stretchy but they’re reaching the edge of their limits around my ever expanding bump. I figured there must be loads of pregnant women still working out but the fact that I can only find one company online that does maternity gym clothes is making me wonder. It also doesn’t help that their leggings are £40 a pair. I cannot justify spending £40 on leggings I am going to wear for 3 months so I think I am going to have to dig out my fat yoga pants and hope for the best. If anyone is looking to make money though, I think I have just identified a gap in the market!
