Dating Mary’s pregnancy

Elizabeth conceived John the Baptist on 17th of Tishri 3756. Gabriel, at the end of the conversation with Marysaid that Elizabeth current pregnancy was at 6 months of gestation.

And, behold, your cousin Elizabeth, she has also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren. (Luke 1: 36)

The chronology is as follow:

Mary got pregnant at the time of 6 months of Elizabeth's gestation.
Mary got pregnant at the time of 6 months of Elizabeth’s gestation.

That Mary got pregnant on 17th of Nisan 3756 is also be known from Gabriel visit to Mary, informing that Elizabeth had also conceived.
