Conception to Birth, New Life is Such a Miracle!

Good Morning Out There! Last September a picture from National  Pro-Life Alliance
was shared on face book. It had a blue back ground and a cute stork carrying
a blanket with a baby tucked inside. The message said:

                       "WE'RE HAVING A CLUMP OF CELLS!"....................
  ..................................SAID NO ONE EVER!

Since the horrible news about Planned Parenthood selling baby parts has come
to light, I wanted to share some of the post I wrote in September 2014.
It really seems to resonate with what is going on now. We have to speak up even
louder now that we actually have people's attention! So here I go, once again!

Previously written for my blog on 9/10/14

"We're Having A Clump Of Cells!"....................Said No One Ever!
I can't tell you how many times I've asked, "Who says I'm pregnant but don't get
excited until it's a baby?" I mean it, have you ever heard anyone say that?!

 So true! Have you ever heard anyone say this? I sure haven't! I remember jumping
around saying I'm pregnant! We're going to have a baby, and from there you're already
wondering, is it a girl, is it a boy, we've got to think of the greatest name and so on....
I wonder if anyone ever does say, "I'm pregnant, but it's just a fetus right now, so we'll
think about this later, you know, when it's really a baby. So when might that be,
lets see.....the heart starts beating 21 days after conception. Come on people wake up!
There's a baby in there! Take care of this wonderful gift God has blessed you with!

Here is some information you might want to have on hand or share with others!

Day 1: Fertilization The sperm joins with the egg to form one cell. This single cell contains the complex
genetic  makeup for every detail of a new human being. The child's sex, hair and
eye color, height, skin tone, etc. After fertilization, nothing new is added but
oxygen, nutrition, and time.
 1st Month (1-4 Weeks) Did you know that a developing baby's heart begins to
 beat at just 21 days? Isn't that  amazing.  Muscles are forming, and arms, legs,
eyes, and ears have begun to show.
2nd Month (5-8 Weeks)
By six weeks the jaw forms, including teeth and taste buds. The baby begins to
swallow  amniotic  fluid, and some have been observed hiccupping.
The kidneys begin to function. Fingers and toes are developing.
At seven weeks a baby's chest and abdomen are fully formed.
3rd Month (9-12 Weeks)
The baby now has fingerprints, turns his or her head, and opens and closes their
 mouth.  The gender can already be determined.
4th Month (13-16 Weeks)
This little baby is growing, and will be between 8-10 inches in length, and weighs
 about  one-half pound by the end of the fourth month.
His or her little ears can hear their momma's heartbeat, and external noises.
5th Month (17-20 Weeks)
This little one is growing bigger, and moving a lot. Some babies have been seen
sucking  their thumb during a sonogram at the fifth month.
6th Month (21-24 Weeks)
A baby's oil and sweat glands are functioning, this little one is growing rapidly and
his or  her lungs are becoming more developed.
7th Month (25-28 Weeks) This little baby boy or girl now recognizes his or her
 mother's voice. They exercise by stretching and kicking as they grow even bigger.
They can use their senses of hearing, touch, and taste. They can even open their eyes
and look around. If the baby is a boy, a son, this is when his testicles descend from
the abdomen into the scrotum. What a miracle a new life is.
8th Month (29-32 Weeks)
Now the baby's skin will thicken, with a layer of fat stored underneath. This helps
with insulation and provides nourishment. He or she will swallow a gallon of amniotic
fluid per day. The mom will be able to feel an elbow or heel, sometimes a little rear end,
as her son or daughter kicks and  moves in this cramped area. (I remember that my
daughter had the hiccups a lot, it was such a funny and neat feeling. I know my son
was doing flips in my stomach!)
9th Month (33-36 Weeks)
He or she will gain one half pound per week, and they are getting ready for birth.
The bones in his or her head are soft and flexible to more easily mold and go through
the birth canal.
Did you know that ninety percent of our development happens in the womb?

Babies are babies no matter how small, please God help us save them all!
