The formatting isn't up to par; I also wonder if "pregnancy" and "conception" should be distinct senses. - -sche (discuss) 03:12, 29 March 2012 (UTC)

Done, please take a look. (As for "conception": it means "pregnancy". The "conception" in our entry came from Strong's, and I think it meant only that the KJV translates it as "conception"; which it does, in Genesis 3:16. But in that context I think only "pregnancy" makes sense, so I think that at the time the KJV was produced, the English word conception must have meant, or at least included, "pregnancy".) —RuakhTALK 11:55, 29 March 2012 (UTC)
