Baby Gives Thumbs Up In Ultrasound Scan

It looks like Donna Sayer’s baby is doing swell after the unborn baby gave his mum and dad a thumbs up signal from inside the womb. When Donna, 29, and partner Simon Biscoe went for a routine 20-week scan they were told its head was unusually elongated and too small. So they returned to Canterbury Hospital two weeks later to check its development. The new images showed all was well but they got a surprise message. Donna, from Whitstable, Kent, said: ‘After checking everything was okay the nurse said she would try to get some more photographs of the baby but it was hiding and all she could get was its hand giving the thumbs-up, as if it was trying to tell us that everything was fine. ‘The image was quite clear. ‘We had both been concerned during the two weeks before I had the third scan but everything is okay. ‘We have shown the photograph to family and friends and they all think it is quite apt.’ The ultrasound practitioner for East Kent, Fay Smith, said instances of babies giving hand signals like this were ‘not that unusual.” w/ photos
