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 18) “I like sucking my thumb. I can hear my mother’s heartbeat and some other funny noises she makes. I’m beginning to know her voice. My umbilical cord (that’s where I get my food from) is really awesome – an engineering marvel.” Chris’s umbilical cord transports 300 quarts of fluid per day and completes a round-trip of fluids every 30 seconds. Wow!
Mother is probably starting to “show” now.
“Isaac prayed to the LORD on behalf of his wife, because she was barren. The LORD answered his prayer, and his wife Rebekah became pregnant.” Gen. 25:21
(Week 17) “When I am sleeping, I have REM (rapid eye movements) which means I am dreaming, but I can’t remember my dreams. My vocal cords have formed but I don’t make a sound – must be because there is no air in here. Isn't it amazing that I’m able to breathe "underwater," inhaling and exhaling small amounts of amniotic fluid?” Chris is working on developing great lungs. Mother may start to feel Chris as a flutter in her lower abdomen.
“Is there anything too wonderful for Yahweh? At the same time next year I shall visit you again and Sarah will have a son.” Gen. 18:13-14
