Blessed Is The Mother With Child - Part 2

Updated on June 5, 2016

Blessed is the mother with child,

for caring for me on the journey of my first 12 weeks

and who continues with me in my next cycle.

Week 13 - Although my head is still bigger than my body, my face is looking more human with eyes moving closer together. Toes and fingers are clearly separated and my ankles have formed.

For this your tummy now starts to grow.

Week 14 - My ears are now moving from the neck to the side of my head, and my neck is getting longer and my chin is prominent. You have now given to me my unique facial features.

For this I give to you stretching of the skin and muscles to accommodate me life inside you.

Week 15 - Now my eyebrows and hair is beginning to grow and my bones are getting harder.

For this I give you bad circulation and a lack of sleep.

Week 16 - My nerve system is now functioning and my muscles are responding to stimulate my small brain.

For this I give to you veins in which may begin to bulge.

Week 17 - Fat begins to form helping me with heat and metabolism. my lungs are beginning to exhale and my circulatory and urinary system are working. My hair on my head, eyebrows and eyelashes are now filling out.

For this you are now showing a tummy as you gain pounds in weight.

Week 18 - I can now yawn, stretch and make facial expressions and even frown. My taste buds are beginning to form separating bitter from sweet, and my retinas have now become sensitive to light.

For this I now give you the feeling of knowing I am there as I move inside you.

Week 19 - My skin is developing and is transparrent, appearing red because of the blood vessels being visible.

For this I give you aches and pains, dizziness and heartburn, leg cramps and backache as you are mid way into pregnancy.

Week 20 - I can now hear sounds, your voice and your heart, your stomach rumbling as well as the sounds from outside. I can also twist and turn, wriggle and punch and kick you sometimes.

For this you have no waistline, you breath deeper and you perspire more often.

Week 21 - My growth rate is slowing down but my organ systems are continuing to mature.

For this there is no going back to your once slim figure as by now your family and friends can see you hold me dear inside you.

Week 22 - My muscles are now stronger, and my eyelids and eyebrows have developed. I now get familiar with your voice.

For this part you no longer suffer morning sickness, but suffer the extra weight I give to you.

Week 23 - I am now proportioned like a newborn, but sadly I am very wrinkly as I still need more weight to gain.

For this your tummy swells so it is noticeable by everyone.

Week 24 - I begin to produce white blood cells which will protect me from disease and infection, and I can also now respond to your touch and your sounds

This gives to you a small amount of weight throughout the week to maintain my growth.

      That a delightful progression of pregnancy, highlighting the "give and take" between mother and infant/embryo. It's how I felt about my little one. In the sonogram we have of her, she is smiling and holding out her arms for a hug...or is she stretching?

      Either's such an amzing journey for mother and child, and you have brought the reader through it with lots of information, laced with gentle humor. :0)
