However, our little girl (or boy, gender was decided weeks ago at conception), has already done a lot of growing! Her (or his) heart has been beating for several weeks already, all of her major joints are functional (shoulder, knees, elbow, wrists and ankles) and her fingers and toes are already growing tiny nails! All this, and much more, while she is still less than 2 inches in size.
You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body
and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.
- Ps 139:13 New Living Translation
