God’s Masterpiece! Fantastic, Fabulous Us!

“Oh no! I have Grandpa’s ears!” It’s never too early to start a journal. This FREE article for kids, My First Diary ~ Momentous Milestones ~ 40 Weeks’, is all about the adventures of a precious, pre-born baby in the womb.

THINK SPOT

  • LIFE IS A GIFT FROM GOD which begins at conception and ends at death. There is nothing that we can do to make it happen. It simply is.
  • PRECIOUS PRE-BORN ~ Hold up your thumb of one hand. Lay it across the palm of your other hand. That is about the real-life size of a 10–12 week old baby in womb (as shown on the article). Roughly about 2 inches (5cm) long. That tiny little baby would easily snuggle into the palm of your hand. At this age, the baby’s heart is beating; all body systems are present; they have fingerprints and toe prints. Those teeny feet are perfectly formed, but only about 3/8 inch (1cm) long! That was once you!
  • PEEK BEHIND THE SCENES OF PSALM 139 ~ At 19 weeks pregnancy, when women generally have an ultrasound scan, the feet of the baby are about 1 inch (2.7cm) long and their tiny heart is already beating about 155 beats per minute. It is a privileged peek behind the scenes into Psalm 139!
  • DID YOU KNOW ~ You know how we all start out as one cell, then it splits into two, then four, then eight and keeps multiplying x 2? By the time we are adults, that would have happened 45 times. When a baby is born, they have already multiplied 41 times!

WHEN I WAS GROWING THERE IN SECRET, GOD KNEW ME ~ ARTICLE FOR KIDS ~ FREE PRINTABLE (A4)

What could be better than to tell your child that God is crazy about them and knew them intimately even before they were born. How amazing is that?! Let them know how special they are to the Creator of the Universe, and that they were made in His image. ‘My first Diary – Momentous Milestones’ – is about those first 40 weeks. Scroll down to read the article text. Love those tiny feet; they are sooo cute! And that’s exactly what they look like on a 10 week old pre-born. We are truly fearfully and wonderfully made.

WHEN I WAS GROWING THERE IN SECRET ~ MY FIRST DIARY (HIGHLIGHTS)

Conception:  Within an hour of Dad’s sperm meeting Mum’s egg, my design is already set from bits and pieces of both of them. I am no bigger than a grain of sugar, but I am already “me”. I just needed TIME… to grow!

Day 24: My tiny heart starts beating.

Day 30: Now I’m millions of cells big. I’ve already grown 10,000 times and am now 6-7 mm (1/4 inch) long. Hey, where’s the wall chart?!

Day 43: My brain waves can be recorded.

Week 7: I can feel my lips. Oh no! I have Grandpa’s ears!

Week 8: Now I look like a tiny miniature baby. I’m only 1 gram, but my wall chart is already up to 3cm (just over one inch) when I’m sitting up. I have all my internal organs, and my liver and kidneys are working. My heart is really pumping. My tummy produces digestive juices. Hey Mum, that chocolate tasted yummy. Later in the week I start to grow fingerprints. I can feel my eyelids and hands. Uh-oh! I can feel pain!

Week 9: I could curl my fingers around yours and suck my thumb. I have fingernails.

Month 5: I already know how I like to curl up to sleep. Hey, easy with the door slamming – that woke me up!

Month 8: Hey, it’s getting a bit cramped in here!

Month 9: By the time I am an adult I will have 45 cell generations of cell divisions. I have already had 41! Look out, Mom! I want out!  :)

  7. That is beautiful! Did you know they are finding out that important development is taking place right up to birth. The last week or two in the womb is when the part of the brain that controls social development is occurring and they are starting to learn that kids who are taken from the womb even a week or two early are behind their term-born peers in social development years later. Isn’t that interesting?
