The Miracle of Conception – A Spectacular Video!

The Miracle of Conception - A Spectacular Video!

Pregnancy is pretty amazing, isn’t it?

It’s pretty hard to believe that in just nine months you can create a newborn baby.

If you’re currently counting down the weeks until your own baby arrives, you might be tracking your baby’s development with an app or pregnancy book, or even BellyBelly’s pregnancy week by week series.

Each week probably leaves you misty-eyed as you discover that your baby has mastered yawning or can finally hear your voice when you talk to him. When you first start feeling those kicks and nudges from inside your bump, it can feel a little surreal.

Pregnancy isn’t all happiness and joy, though.

In fact, some women find the whole nine months to be a bit of a slog. After all, morning sickness, fatigues, hemorrhoids, pelvic pain and sore boobs aren’t exactly desirable symptoms, are they?

Some pregnancy symptoms can leave you feeling downright miserable and there’s nothing wrong with that. You don’t need to feel guilty for not loving every second of your pregnancy. If you need a pick-me-up, however, this amazing video might just do the trick.

When you’re sobbing in the bath because your skin itches, throwing up your breakfast in a bus on the way to work or farting so bad you think your partner might leave you, this video will remind you that it’s all going to be worth it.

The 12 minute animation captures an entire pregnancy — from the moment those sperm are released to the very second the baby enters the world, it is all shown in this amazing short video.

The first two minutes show the amazing journey sperm makes to reach the egg (get ready to feel weird about your hairy-looking uterine lining). The video then shows the development from fertilised egg to full fledged baby. It’s pretty amazing to watch the heart begin to beat and see those facial features slowly begin to take shape. The animation ends with the birth, and will no doubt leave you feeling impatient for the arrival of your own baby.

The video is a great teaching aid, too. If you have an older child currently awaiting the arrival of a new baby brother or sister, this video is a great way to teach them about how babies develop. Pregnancy can be tricky for younger kids to understand because it lasts a long time (not to mention that they have little concept of time) and they can’t really see much evidence of it (aside from your growing bump and the fact you now nap a lot).

Be prepared though, your child may ask you where the sperm came from after watching the video so you’ll need to have your answer ready. Remember, it’s best to be honest with children in an age appropriate way.
