Chris has implanted in the wall of his mother’s uterus, which usually takes place 10-14 days after conception. Immediately, physical changes start taking place in his mother. The placenta starts to form. The placenta protects the child and provides nutrients to the new baby. The mother’s uterus will increase its capacity by 1000 times during the pregnancy!
Luke’s gospel says that Mary went “in haste” to visit her cousin Elizabeth who was six months pregnant with John the Baptist. Jesus, an embryo, was greeted by a fetus (John) who leaped for joy at the presence of his Savior.
“for nothing is impossible with God.” Luke 1:37
