What awkward part of the 6th grade health class did you forget? Until I read up when wanting to conceive, did I truly understand what on earth my body was doing naturally. Lets look at the bible and at science to see what is going on. After a few hours of research I stumbled upon this jewel! Hang in there through the information because I believe it is incredible truths.
Zola Levitt discovered an amazing correlation between Biblical (Jewish) Holy Days and the gestation of a human baby, from conception to birth. While preparing for writing a book for new parents, Zola contacted a gynecologist for some help in understanding gestation.
During that session, the gynecologist showed him a series of pictures, pointed to the first one (an egg and a sperm) and said, “On the fourteenth day of the first month, the egg appears.”
The statement struck a chord in his Jewish mind because that was the date of Passover. He remembered the roasted egg on his family table every Passover. Now, for the first time, he knew what it meant! Not wanting to lead the gynecologist off from the subject at hand, he didn’t say anything, but continued to listen.
The gynecologist continued: “The egg must be fertilized within 24 hours, or it will pass on.” This reminded Zola of the Feast of Unleavened Bread and the seed or grain that “fell into the ground and died”in order to produce a harvest, the first fruits of which was presented to God.
Next, the gynecologist said, “Within two to six days, the fertilized egg attaches itself to the wall of the womb and begins to grow.” And, sure enough, the Jewish evangelist thought, “The Feast of First fruits is observed anywhere from two to six days after Passover!”
Next, he was shown a photo of an embryo showing arms, hands, fingers, legs, feet, toes, a head, eyes, etc. The caption said, “Fifty days.” The gynecologist continued, “Around the fiftieth day, the embryo takes on the form of a human being. Until then, we don’t know if we have a duck or a tadpole.” Zola thought, “That’s Pentecost!”
The next picture showed the embryo at seven months. The gynecologist said, “On the first day of the seventh month, the baby’s hearing is developed. For the first time, it can hear and distinguish sounds outside the womb.” Zola knew that was the date for the Jewish Festival of Trumpets.
The gynecologist continued, “On the tenth day of the seventh month, the hemoglobin of the blood changes from that of the mother, to a self-sustaining baby.” Zola thought, “That’s the Day of Atonement, when the blood was taken into the Holy of holies!”
Next, the gynecologist said, “On the fifteenth day of the seventh month, the lungs become fully developed. If born before then, the baby would have a hard time breathing.” And Zola thought, “That’s the festival of Tabernacles, a time of celebrating the Temple, home of the Shekinah glory or Spirit of God.” In the New Testament, the Greek term pneuma, normally translated as “breath,” is applied to the “Holy Spirit.”
Birth takes place on the tenth day of the ninth month. Eight days after birth, in Jewish families, a son is circumcised. Zola noted that the eight days of Hanukkah are celebrated right on schedule, nine months and ten days after Passover.
No human being could have understood the gestation period 3,500 years ago. The establishment of the Jewish Holy Days was given to Moses by Jehovah, Himself. Its correlation with the human gestation period is not only remarkable; it proves “Intelligent Design.” It proves the existence of an intelligence beyond this world. It proves that there is a Creator God that guides the affairs of man.

That being said I am going to try to explain science alone. From day one to day 28 what your body is doing.
Day 1-4 (Menstruation) is the shedding of the uterine lining (your period)
Day 5-13 (Proliferative) literal translation : a phase of wound healing, also during which follicles in the ovary mature, some explanations will also include the menstruation phase to this making this phase last Day 1-13. But in my eyes wound “healing” isn’t going on when you’re bleeding.
Day 13-16 (Ovulation) a mature ovarian follicle ruptures and discharges an ovum (egg) [see in the top diagram]
Day 16-28 (Luteal) It begins with the formation of the corpus luteum (a vascular (somatic cell) biological cell forming the body of an organism. A temporary endocrine structure that is essential for a successful pregnancy which helps form the Lining and Membrane in the uterus by the release of hormones like progesterone, from what I understand your baby’s house for the duration of your pregnancy essentially) and ends in either pregnancy or luteolysis (disintegration of the corpus luteum.)
Day 27-28 (Ischemic) Corpus Luteum disintegrates, if you aren’t pregnant your body isn’t going to prepare a place for a child inside you anymore. Thus starting of your Menstrual cycle again.
This is a calender to help you understand what I just explained but in terms of when your body can become pregnant for the visual learners.
I hope this is helpful for all to just have a nice learning lesson of what your body really does. It is truly a God designed system, it is also God given that we have children. I am going to close this post now, I know I could open up a can of worms and talk about more biblical truths that come along with pregnancy, loss and the history of childbearing but I feel like there is a different time for those truths to be revealed. For now dwell in this closing bible verses.
For you formed my inward parts;you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.
