Did Mary know Jesus was God?

Mary knew she was carrying the Messiah, but did she know that he was God and if not when did she realize that Jesus was also God?

We don’t know what Mary precisely knew and when, but it is reasonable to assume that Elizabeth’s greeting to her (“Why is this granted me, that themother of my Lord should come to me?” Luke 1:43) may have started her thinking along those lines, if she had not begun to do so already.
