The Word was made Flesh . . . Following
Baby Jesus in the womb
Mother’s body produces as much as 50% more blood and body fluids during pregnancy to meet
Baby’s needs. Enlarging
Baby pushes on mother’s pelvic veins, and blood flow in the lower part of her body is partially blocked. This pushes fluid into her legs and feet, causing swelling. Mother may be a bit (or very) uncomfortable, but
Baby is being fed and kept warm.
Baby’s approximate due date: December 25, 2014
The Word Made Flesh for October 17-18, 2015
Our little girl is growing, pushing on veins, causing Mommy's feet to swell. But this is normal for this stage of the pregnancy. John Chapter 16 tells us that like the pain of the Apostles losing Christ, the pain of pregnancy will soon be replaced with the joy of a new soul in the world. Baby's due date is still December 25, 2015.
