Mum Shocked As Baby Stares At Camera In 'Creepy' 20-Week Scan
An expectant mother was given a fright when she looked at her 20-week scan and saw her baby staring right back at her.
Jo Greer, from Plymouth, Devon, couldn't believe what she was seeing as she checked the half-way scan only to discover that the fetus appeared to be examining her too.
The fitness instructor, who runs Elevate Dance and Fitness Studio, said she and her partner Clint Jones went through an understandable range of emotions in just a few seconds, from shocked, to creeped out, to highly amused.
The 34-year-old said: "It was quite creepy, it was a bit of a shock. Me and my partner just turned to each other and burst out laughing.
"Apparently there's nothing wrong with it, but we were told it is quite rare that the baby looks at the camera.
"We'll keep the image and put it on their 18th birthday card as a bit of a giggle."
Here's hoping the kid - whose gender they're keeping as a surprise - won't read this article over the next 18 years so they can have their birthday card as a surprise too.
Sharing the image on Facebook, Jo wrote: "So we've all seen the standard, cute sideways scan pictures, but this is ours.
"Of course we got the usual scan pics, but then baby turned to face the camera which is apparently quite rare and highly amusing."
Jo is not the first mother to be given the creeps by her own pregnancy scan.
One mum in the US was more than a little disturbed by what she saw at her 24-week scan, describing the fetus as a 'devil baby' and a 'f***ing creep'.
Iyanna Carrington, from Richmond, Virginia, was looking forward to finding out the sex of her baby - but was shocked when her offspring flashed her a sinister grin.
The 17-year-old said: "I'd never seen anything like it. I love this devil baby so much already.
"I was going to see whether she was a boy or girl. They showed her face and she looked normal, then the nurse confirmed she was a girl, but I knew that deep down already.
"Then they put it back on her face and she was just looking right at me like that.
"I said, 'She looks like a ghost' in the doctor's office and the doctor said, 'Yeah, that's very normal.' She looked a bit crazy."
Luckily parents are hardwired to think their kids are adorable no matter what, so these creepy babies should be just fine.
