Ultrasound Surprises

Baby Gives Mom a Thumbs Up During Ultrasound

Periodic ultrasounds give expectant mamas peace of mind as they go through the 40-week journey of pregnancy. A fetus with two hands, two ears and two feet is one of the most reassuring images a mom-to-be can see, but what happens when the snapshot shows more?

A British woman recently came out of her 20-week sonogram with a message from her baby-to-be. During her scan, he gave her the thumbs up sign! During my 36-week scan with my first son, we saw enough hair hanging down the back of his head to make a ponytail. Have you had any ultrasound surprises?

My son gave us the "fight the power" fist.

As an ultrasound tech I see some wonderful things. The funniest though was when a fetus opened his mouth wide and stuck out his tongue...reminded me of Snoopy. That kid had a very long tongue. I had to take a break before I could continue the exam. It was hysterical.

We just had our anatomic survey ultrasound, and the baby was waving at us and showing us his spine.. he was clearly very proud of his spine :P
