Pregnancy

Alive and Growing!
Human life begins at conception-the moment when the male sperm and female egg unite to form a new, unique human being In the entire history of time, there has never been, nor will there ever be another human exactly like this one...


Day One - The new life receives 23 chromosomes from the mother and 23 from the father. Contained in this single cell is the genetic blueprint for the child's development, including sex, hair, skin and eye color. Every human being who ever lived began his or her life as a single cell...

Day 1-4 - The fertilized egg begins to divide. One cell becomes two, two becomes four, four become eight, doubling each time. By the time the new life reaches the end of the fallopian tube, she has grown considerably. Her cells number about 100 and by week two will begin to specialize.

Day 5-9 - Implantation - The growing child (now called a blastocyst) bounces along the uterine wall looking for a spot to implant. Sometimes she takes as many as three days to decide on a spot before attaching herself to the wall of her mother's womb. Implantation sends a chemical signal which stops her mother's menstrual period.
