Traditionally, we believe Christ was conceived on March 25, the Feast of the Annunciation. We will watch the parallel development of “Chris” in the womb from March 25 to December 25.
(Week 26) Chris’s taste buds continue to form. “I can taste sweet things now. My mom likes chocolate and so do I. A bright light can be seen by me though my mommy’s tummy. I have eyelashes and eyebrows now. My fingerprints are fully formed. My toenails and fingernails are growing and may need to be clipped when I’m born.”
Mom may be feeling like a "Soccer Mom" now that her uterus is the size of a soccer ball.
“How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!”
“The Lord gives sight to the blind…” Psalm 146:8
(Week 25) Thousands and thousands of brain cells are growing in Chris’s head every day! Soon Chris will have billions of brain cells. “I can make a fist and grasp things. My spine is beginning to form to protect my spinal cord. I’m covered by a white cheesy substance that protects my skin. Don’t worry, it will come off right after birth.”
Mom can tell if her baby gets the hiccups.
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you came to birth I consecrated you; I have appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Jer. 1:4-5
